  • Flat die type
This type fodder pellet mill is mainly composed of feeding hopper, main shaft, roller, electric control cabinet, gear box etc. The driving device drives the main shaft through the gear box, then the pelleting device will start to rotate to press the raw materials, when the raw material enters into the pelleting chamber. Because of the rotation difference, the flat die fodder pellet mill is divided into two types, the D-type adopting rotating die and fixed roller and R-type based on rotating roller and fixed die.
