PreFeeder 2500

PreFeeder 2500

Prefeeding Machine Dereeler Type

The Prefeeder 2500 is an ideal feeding system for wire, small cables and tubing. The feeding process allows rapid acceleration of the spool while maintaining low forces on the material being fed. The dereeler is available in a 40 or 80 kg (88 or 177 lbs.) version, based on maximum spool weight. The PreFeeder 2500 is easy to integrate into a processing line. The feed adjustment is carried out through a dancer arm type accumulator. The PreFeeder 2500 is the perfect solution for feeding a wide spectrum of materials.

The PreFeeder 2500 is an active dereeler and the ideal feeding system for wire, small cables and tubing. It is a simple solution for large production output and offers an excellent price / performance ratio.


  • Quick loading and unloading
  • Simple assembly of the required control elements for easy handling
  • Adjustable forward and backward feed direction

Customer Benefits
