Automatic Bar Feeds For Entry Level Swiss Machines

The Alpha series of automatic bar feeds are designed for pairing with entry level, CNC sliding headstock lathes. The Alpha ST 212 handles barstock diameters from 2 mm to 12 mm, and the ST 316 accommodates 3-mm to 16-mm diameters. The ST 212 eliminates the usual problems associated with feeding small-diameter barstock by mechanically advancing the material to the loading position with a nylon screw.

The Alpha series of automatic bar feeds are designed for pairing with entry level, CNC sliding headstock lathes. The Alpha ST 212 handles barstock diameters from 2 mm to 12 mm, and the ST 316 accommodates 3-mm to 16-mm diameters.

The ST 212 eliminates the usual problems associated with feeding small-diameter barstock by mechanically advancing the material to the loading position with a nylon screw. The ST 316 uses a gravity-fed rack and loading fingers that flip the barstock precisely into the channel. Both bar feeds are designed for simplicity of setup and operation. They each come with easy-to-use remote controls and manually adjusted outboard supports. A synchronization option is available for use with high-speed sliding headstock machines or when running special materials.
