The Elite Series of 12-ft. bar feeders are Iemca’s latest development for feeding high performance Swiss-type lathes. These units feature calibrated hydrodynamic round-section guide channels and mechanical synchronization designed to excel at bar rotation speeds as high as 20,000 rpm and headstock synchronization in excess of 1.5-G-force acceleration.

Two models of Elite bar feeders cover material ranges of 1 mm to 12 mm (Elite 112) or 2 mm to 20 mm (Elite 220). Both models are magazine-style bar feeders, equipped with walking beam magazines for the tangle-free loading of small-diameter bar, and make use of a double pusher design, which minimizes the overall machine footprint. The Elite 220 has the added feature of a second gravity feed magazine for handling large-diameter bars.

The design of the Elite Series provides for versatile bar feeders for precision Swiss lathes. The snap-in design of the guide channels in the Elite Series also provide for quick change-overs from one material diameter to another. They are built to achieve new levels of performance and flexibility, with silent operation, extreme reliability and precision.
