Feedinator 1000

Tired of the hassle of constantly babysitting your case feeder while reloading?  

Meet the Feedinator — the ultimate jam-resistant case feeder! Designed with your convenience in mind, the Feedinator 1000 is built to effectively unjam itself by using our proprietary Digital Clutch technology. If it encounters a jam, it reverses to self-clear the issue, and remembers the optimal plate speed. Should the problem persist, it will promptly alert you with a message.

The Feedinator 1000 is specifically tailored for compatibility with the Dillon layout, delivering exceptional performance and unbeatable convenience. Equipped with a smart microcontroller, it takes charge of plate behavior, ensuring efficient un-jamming and automatically turning itself off when the hopper is empty. Here are some of its remarkable features:

  • Intelligent Plate Speed Control: The Feedinator’s smart plate speed control dynamically adjusts the rotational speed of the hopper plate to match your consuming machine’s requirements, ensuring smooth and efficient feeding.
  • Jam Detection and Clearing: With advanced monitoring capabilities, the Feedinator promptly detects jams and swiftly reverses direction to clear any obstructions, keeping your reloading process seamless and hassle-free.  User can adjust operating parameters for jam detection.
  • Hopper Empty Detection: Integrated sensors in the hopper efficiently detect when the case feeder is empty, enabling the Feedinator to power off the plate automatically, preventing any unnecessary operations.
  • Seamless Messaging and Pause: Enjoy USB connectivity to the Sortinator, allowing you to control sorting operations with ease by exchanging messages, streamlining your reloading process.
  • Hopper Refill Alerts: Thanks to USB connectivity to your Sortinator, the Feedinator can trigger alarms or send messages when the hopper requires refilling, ensuring you’re always aware of the status and ready to keep the operation going.
  • Easy Plate Replacement: Additional finger holes in the Feedinator allow for quick and convenient plate replacement, promising minimal downtime and smooth maintenance.
  • Flexible Control Options: Manage the Feedinator directly from your laptop using the Sortinator software for advanced control, or opt for the simple toggle switch to indicate when you’ve refilled the hopper, providing you with the freedom to choose your preferred method.
  • Clear Acrylic Base: Allows for viewing the operation of the feeder without a mirror.
