The FMB 20-100 bar feeder expands on the already established Turbo “Heavy Metal” line of hydrodynamic 12-ft. through 24-ft. bar loading magazine feeders. Quick-change polyurethane guide channels allow for quiet operation at high RPM while feeding round, square or hex barstock. This unit also offers a one size channel set that automatically adjusts for all material sizes. This feeder is compatible with all types of sliding or fixed, CNC or cam-operated lathes with spindle bores up to 102 mm.

The design of the Turbo 20-100’s cast iron base and support stands are resistant to flexing. With the unit weighing over 8,200 lbs, this keeps vibration from bent bars to a minimum, so a smooth operation is guaranteed. Double-pusher space-saving design is 4 ft. shorter than single pusher bar feeders.

The Turbo 20-100 features a Bosch IndraDrive controller with a servomotor drive to the feed mechanism. Flexible control of bar length and rate of feed guarantees the optimum practical and economic use of the bar feeder. Easy options on the operator control panel guarantee proper interaction between the bar feeder and the CNC lathe, with parameters clearly shown on the text display.
