Lateral Chain Feeder - Doucet MFE-300

The Lateral Chain Feeder Model MFE-300 is designed for continuous feed up to 300 feet per minute of fixed or random length pieces into a moulder.


  •     On the feed table, boards are automatically placed along the feed line by perpendicular strands of chains
  •     A pneumatic system lowers chain carriage between each feed cycle thus preventing unnecessary friction between the piece being fed and the reserve material
  •     Boards are automatically driven in sequence by a combination of two powered wheels located under the material and two top pressurized wheels over the material
