High Capacity Paper Feeder

In addition to our manufacturing capabilities, RTMA - Rochester Technology and Manufacturing Association is experienced with the custom design and developments of products for a specific need. We carried out the design, manufacture, and assembly of a high capacity paper feeder for a northeastern U.S. client in the copier industry. The paper feeder was manufactured from cold rolled steel and plastic, and also included all electrical components, cabling, and circuit boards, with final dimensions of 32" x 30" x 30" and a weight of 130 lbs.

Beginning with AutoCAD file design work as well as the design of custom software and tooling for the process, we then machined component pieces using a CNC laser-punch turret press and a CNC brake press. Parts were welded using a spot welder and a bench welder, and hardware insertion equipment as well as hand assembly were used in the final steps. Following comprehensive run-testing, we shipped the 5,000 unit order shipped to our customer, following a J.I.T. inventory management system.
