The digital October issue of Production Machining is now available, with emphasis topics of Bar Feeders/Material Handling and Vertical Turning. For our cover story, we examine the basics of bar feeders, detailing some primary factors involved in justifying the implementation of a bar feeder for turning operations. Our second feature looks at a contract shop that has found its niche in vertical turning big parts for big savings.

Our first Tech Brief details a new bar feeder from Haas that is designed to boost productivity through streamlined operation. Next in the Tech Brief section, we take a look at a parts loader/unloader system designed for pre-processed workpieces. In our Case in Point, we visit a shop that, in an effort towards leaner operations, implemented a machine monitoring system that addressed inefficiencies with CNC program transfers and file revision control.
