LNS’s Hydrobar Sprint 542 automatic bar loader feeds 12-ft. round, hexagonal or square barstock with diameters from 1/4” to 1 5/8” (5 mm ¬to 42 mm) into fixed or sliding headstock turning machines. A programmable, fully automatic, hydrostatic front stabilizer dampens vibrations between the bar feed and the lathe spindle, enabling users to operate at optimum spindle speeds while maintaining cutting accuracy.

The bar loader uses round, elongated guiding elements that open for new bar loading and then close for the entire machining process. This permits hydrodynamic or hydrostatic operation in a pressurized oil film.

Complete diameter change-overs take less than 8 minutes using quick-change guiding elements that require no tools and entering diameter, part length and application data into the prompting remote control. The machine then automatically self-adjusts to these parameters.

Standard equipment includes a remnant retraction system, an automatic front stabilizer, a menu-driven, prompting remote control and a Z-axis retraction system. It can be ordered with either a front or rear mounted loading ramp. The loading ramp includes automatic diameter adjustment of bar selection fingers.
