There is a large variety of feeders
available. The smallest feeders are made out of a stand, upon which the actual machine is mounted. This contains a motor that operates several rubber rollers
. Alternatively, one rubber roller
can be operated by the others. The rubber is pressed onto the band material. When switching on the motor, the rubber rollers pull the band forwards. Depending on what is required, most feeders
can undertake a defined step by step or a continuous operation. The traction of the feeder depends on its size, the power of its motor and its pressing power. The choice of feeder is thereby determined by the workpiece.
