Applications

Key benefits

Podmores Infeed Hoppers allow you to fill up one hopper with your product and let it feed other machines at the rate you require. No longer will you have to hand fill machines throughout the day, load our Hoppers up and leave them to empty.

Our Infeed Hoppers communicate with other machinery to supply the right rate and stop if no product is required. This ensures optimum performance throughout your factory. When the Hopper is running low it will alert you so you never run short.
