The Mini-Rhinobar single-tube hydrodynamic bar feeder is designed for high speed, small stock applications with quick feed tube changeover. The Mini-Rhinobar system is engineered for Swiss-type CNC screw machines and small, fixed head CNC lathes. It can be equipped with as many as 16 feed tubes in 1/8" increments to handle bars from 1/8" to 1 5/8" diameter and is available to accommodate 6-foot or 12-foot bar lengths. Its compact size makes the Mini-Rhinobar suitable for small or large shops. The 6-foot bar length model has an overall length of only 11 feet. The 12-foot model has an overall length of only 17 feet. Like the larger Rhinobar bar feeder, the design of the Mini-Rhinobar helps reduce shop noise levels while providing improved bar stock stability. Oil fills the gap between the bar stock and feed tube, acting as a noise damping support. As the bar begins to turn, hydrodynamic forces move it toward the center of the feed tube. Centering forces are increased as bar speed increases. Oil flow and pressure are controlled with a single valve, which also allows for accurate bar control and minimal vibration. The front swing out mechanism includes a large clamp to help reduce bar vibration. The Mini-Rhinobar can be controlled from a remote pendant for safe, easy operation.
