Automatic Prefeed Devices
Consider using a Prefeed Device when higher precision and/or output is needed from any type of strip cutting machine. These devices  work by keeping the tension on the webbing consistent prior to being indexed by the cutting machine. The tension is automatically monitored by use of either a dancer arm or non-contact photosensor. Use the Standard model RX-104 for most applications and the RX-154 for heavy-duty webbings.

Model RX-104-XEK

Automatic 5" Pre-feed Device
