Gear motor driveInfeed throatTypically installed inline with production equipment, the ZENO Horizontal Grinders are fed via a Vibrating Infeed Table (available in any length).  Once the material is at the infeed throat, serrated steel infeed rollers grab the material and bring it into the cutting chamber.  The infeed rollers, ranging from 2 to 8 in number (depending on the size and volume capabilities of the unit) are located on the top and bottom at the infeed throat. All are gear-driven and infeed controlled through a completely wired Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) Panel. The bottom rollers are in a fixed position, while the top rollers float, constantly adjusting to the height of the incoming material.
