Please offer your material handling requirements, and we will offer our belt feeder capacity suggestions.

IEM make high-performance belt feeders for mining/quarrying operations.

IEM's belt feeders are designed to handle materials such as:

Copper
Coal
Gold
Diamond
Lead
Limestone
Molybdenum
Zinc

IEM's designers develop belt feeders that can handle all types of bulk material handling materials

IEM belt feeders are custom manufactured to function as a primary feed unit for all applications. From crushing, screening and washing circuits, IEM belt feeders are the most robustly built feeders for moving materials out of hoppers.

Our engineers design custom belt feeders for all types of applications. They are capable of being mounted in many different positions. Our belt feeders are designed to withstand the wear and tear caused by snow, rain, ice, and wind. Our belt feeders are known to be robust and durable.

IEM belt feeders can handle materials that are difficult to volume control such as sand and gravel or fine and dry materials. They can also handle exceptionally hot, large and lumpy, or light and fluffy materials. Our team has decades of experience in building feeders for all types of applications.

IEM's success is derived from our engineering department. Our project manager and our engineers collaborate with our clients to discover their specific needs. Then, we draw on decades of engineering experience to manufacture a belt feeder that will perform within intended specifications and satisfy our client’s expectations. Our design team is the foundation of our company. All team members understand the importance of clear communications. Our systems allow our people to communicate at all various levels of design, testing, and production. We place a strong emphasis on our company's communication skills as well as our knowledgeable, and expert staff.

When we manufacture belt feeders we put our clients in touch with one project manager. The project manager will request specific information related to the project’s end goal. As our project manager ascertains information, he will expose possible unknown risks and concerns. By uncovering these potential risks in the early stages of the manufacturing cycle, we can ensure that the belt feeder is manufactured to produce the intended results.

For all our clients, you can trust that we will bring our decades of expertise to every stage of the production process. From concept to completion, we will make sure our belt feeders function as they are intended to function.

At IEM, we are here to produce results for our clients.
