Walco VF400 Industrial High Speed Vacuum Friction Feeder

Many in the industry have been talking about the Walco VF400 for years now. Ask anyone in the industry why they love it and the answer is the same: the VF400 has quickly garnered a reputation for the innovation, dependability, and flexible operation that it brings to mailing operations. Walco has made a name for itself throughout the industry by making truly industrial grade products, which are designed with the rugged specifications needed to stand up to the demanding 24/7 operating environment many companies rely upon. The VF400 does not disappoint.

This is why it’s gained the reputation it has: the Walco VF400 is one of the most stalwart machines on the market, built to be durable and resilient, even if subjected to the most rigorous always-on operations. Its locking collar mechanisms are built oversized so that you won’t run into the common problem of these wearing out on you. Moreover, the precision machined guides mean that you won’t be sacrificing the high degree of accuracy you depend upon in exchange for that durability.

The key with friction feeders is, of course, the friction. The Walco VF400 doesn’t disappoint in that arena either, boasting two 2.5 inch wide belts of 50 inches in length. You won’t find the same surface area on any other machine in the market, and that surface area translates directly into more friction. The vacuum powered operation combined with these belts means this is a feeder which can handle virtually any product you throw at it. It even works when other feeders would fail. This includes products covered in powder (which would overcome the friction offered by most machines).
