IEM makes high-performance apron feeders for mining/quarrying operations.

IEM's apron feeders are designed to handle the following materials:

Copper
Coal
Gold
Diamond
Molybdenum
Lead
Nickel
Zinc
Potash

IEM’s designers develop apron feeders that can handle all types of materials at a controlled rate.
They can handle materials that are hot, sharp, and lumpy. After we determine our client's material dimensions, we offer feeders with varying lengths. These apron feeders are designed to allow for a controlled rate of feed, which prevent excessive surge loads.

Based on the requirements of the application, we strive to offer high-performance material handling solutions. We enjoy taking on challenging projects that require engineering expertise. Our team of engineers have decades of collective experience and we offer this experience to all our clients. We've produced a variety of apron feeder applications with a diverse range of material and capacity.

Based on our experience, we believe, that “one size doesn’t fit all” when it comes to material handling equipment. That is why we manufacture customized apron feeders that are designed to handle specific materials and capacities. Our team’s project manager and engineers collaborate with the client to acquire all the specifics of our client's needs. Then our engineers and fabrication team devise a plan to custom manufacture an apron feeder that will produce the desired results.

We deliver apron feeders that are durable, efficient, and cost effective. When designing apron feeders, we take into account many factors such as: the type of application, the nature of the bulk material, the size of the bulk material, the capacity of production, and the condition of the environment surrounding the operation.

IEM has a manufacturing facility for the custom production of apron feeders. We are glad to be here to offer our knowledge and decades of collective expertise. We have the experience to work with all materials, and we always collaborate with our clients to provide the best service in the industry.

At IEM, we are here to produce equipment that bring about the results our clients expect.
