Company & Product Description 

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

IEM meets the client’s specific needs by providing unparalleled flexibility and versatility in the manufacturing of the belt feeder. IEM belt feeders are custom designed for specific requirements, and conditions, and are capable of being mounted in various positions to suit the needs of the mining operations. The belt feeder is built to withstand the wear and tear brought on by snow, rain, ice and wind. IEM takes pride in the durability of  their belt feeders. Their  products are designed to handle many different types of materials. If  clients require close volume control of sand and gravel or fine and dry materials, they will find that IEM belt feeders are capable and reliable. If clients 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.

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

When clients place an order for a  belt feeder, IEM  begins the task by putting the client  in touch with one of their project managers. The project manager will start by asking specific questions to ascertain the project’s particular needs. IEM believes that this initial phase brings to the surface previously unknown risks or concerns. By uncovering these concerns early in the project manufacturing cycle, IEM’s product process will ensure that all the detailed engineering requirements are fulfilled. IEM manufactures bulk material handling equipment that exceed clients expectations.

IEM is able to ensure that the belt feeder is manufactured with the utmost consideration for all of their client’s needs. From that stage, the project manager continues his work by maintaining ongoing communication between the client  and the project team.
