The eight-spindle bar loader has a 21-mm channel capacity and will be equipped with rotary centering devices and automatic spring bushings to provide better stability of the bar at a high rpm and increase the bar diameter capacity range without changing over the guide channel. The Siemens S7 PLC controller has reduced the loading cycle time down to 15 seconds per spindle. This loader also features a new operator panel with visual auto-diagnostic networking capability and modem Tele-assistance. Also shown will be the Schutte AG20 eight-spindle automatic that features eight independently operated endworking and cross slides with preset positive stops that require no adjustment. The one-piece cams, SWS400 quick change toolholder system and direct programming of spindle speeds and cycle time result in fast changeover times. With spindle speeds up to 10,000 rpm and an idle time of 0.5 seconds, the machine is well equipped for the fast production of small turned components up to 20 mm in diameter.
