Shops that need to load large-diameter bar stock typically use of loaders that can only handle only 4′ and 5′ lengths. Unfortunately, this limits their capabilities for long-term or lights out operations. At CNC Indexing & Feeding Technologies, we offer a large-capacity bar feeder series that can accommodate bars up to 12′ long from 10mm – 65mm diameter and, with a simple channel change, up to 80mm in diameter.
The TRACER 65V/80V Hydrodynamic Magazine Bar Feeder balances clamping action and oil pressure to securely and precisely hold and feed larger-diameter bars up to 12′ long, providing an economical solution for long production runs. These feeders hold multiple bars — the exact number depends on the diameter size. For example, it can hold 36 bars that are 10mm in diameter, 5 bars that are 65mm, and 4 bars that are 80mm.
The new 65V/80V bar feeder is engineered as an ideal solution for job shops that need to feed production-run quantities of long, large-diameter bar stock on fixed- and sliding-headstock CNC lathes who need to feed. The lathe operator can quickly adjust the machine for different bar sizes — without any tools — and fast change guide channels to increase throughput while minimizing changeover and setup times. Torque force and speed are also easily adjustable to provide consistent feeding.
The 65V/80V large-capacity bar feeder series also features the patented TRACER external blue light display that provides continuous visual monitoring of bar status and alarms.
CNC Indexing & Feeding Technologies continually strives to improve its hydrodynamic magazine bar feeder technology to increase its usefulness for the production turning industry. Contact us today at firstname.lastname@example.org!
