Agilis feeders for MyData machines

Agilis feeders for MyData machines | 7 April, 2005

Hi there To all the MyData users out there who use Agilis feeders I would like to pose a question. What does your company do with the feeder sticks you have that get the tips of the plows broken off? Do you get them repaired or do you toss them away? Please reply to this thread or to my email address if you would. chrispy1963@insightbb.com Thank You!

Hi,

We have never had a break, and I did not know that happened. Can they be repaired?

Regards,

Grant

Grant, Yes they do get broken by the operator or whom ever is loading or unloading the feeder stick pulling the tape through the feeder and the component pocket will snag the tip of the plow and bend it so that the tip ends up breaking off making the feed stick useless. In response to being able to repair them, I havent found a anyone yet and from what weve been told theres no way to repair them.
