  • More information on belt feeder

    IEM specializes in providing high-capacity, reliable belt feeders. They are custom manufactured to your exact specifications and function well as a primary feed unit for most crushing, screening and wash circuits. IEM belt feeders are your best choice for moving material out of hoppers and bins.

    IEM meets your specific needs by providing unparalleled flexibility and versatility in the manufacturing of your belt feeder. They are designed for your specific specifications and conditions, and are capable of being mounted in various positions to suit the needs of your mining operations. Your belt feeder can be built to withstand the wear and tear brought on by snow, rain, ice and wind. At IEM we take pride in the durability of our belt feeders. Our product is designed to handle many different types of material. If you require close volume control of sand and gravel or fine and dry materials, you'll find that IEM belt feeders are capable and reliable. If you require a belt feeder that can manage exceptionally hot, large and lumpy, or light and fluffy material, IEM belt feeders can be manufactured to meet those needs, as well.

    We at IEM place strong emphasis on our company's foundation of knowledgeable, and expert staff. From our designers to our project managers, all of our team members have extensive experience with both the production process and the importance of clear communication.

    When you place an order for one of our belt feeders, we begin the task by putting you in touch with one of our project managers. The project manager will start by asking you specific questions to ascertain your particular needs. It has been our experience that this initial phase brings to the surface previously unknown risks or concerns. By uncovering these early, we are able to ensure that your belt feeder is manufactured with the utmost consideration for all of your needs. From that stage, our project manager continues his work by maintaining ongoing communication between you and the project team. Whether you require greater design assistance, have a question, or perhaps have a new consideration for us to take into account, we will be there, easily accessible and easy to talk with.

    The IEM approach emphasizes the value of this communication, recognizing it as a primary value and using it as a guiding force in all that we do. From planning to fabrication, we provide only the most precise manufacturing available in the market today.  We maintain an intense attention to detail that carries through from design down to the accurate fit of the components themselves.

    This commitment to service does not end with the delivery of the product. A belt feeder is a complex and intricate piece of machinery that is exposed to some of the harshest conditions imaginable. Once the product is installed and set to work in your mining operation, we provide ongoing equipment product support. We are at all times an email or phone call away, ready to help you no matter what the problem may be. We believe in our products and stand by them. We also stand by you, and never lose sight of the importance of serving our clients.

    When you bring your belt feeder project to us, you can trust that we will bring our decades of experience to every stage of the process, from concept to completion and beyond. We are small enough to provide such extensive service, and large enough to accommodate high-volume orders.

    We look forward to serving you and working together on your belt feeder project.
