A feeder is a crucial component of a printing press that automatically feeds paper into the machine, ensuring a steady and consistent flow.


Paper Feeder


  1. Sheet-fed presses use a feeder to individually place each sheet into the printing press.
  2. Roll-fed presses have a feeder that continuously supplies paper from a large roll.


  • Regularly clean and maintain the feeder to prevent paper jams and misfeeds.
  • Adjust the feeder settings according to the type and size of paper being used to ensure smooth operation.
  • Monitor the feeder for wear and tear and replace any damaged parts promptly to maintain print quality and efficiency.
