Chip Disposal and Coolant Management Systems
With the new CCM products, the company’s research and development teams achieved two key goals: optimizing the efficiency of the whole production process and at the same time considerably reducing energy consumption. The Turbo MH250 chip conveyor operates with only one motor and belt, filtering all chip types and shapes as well as all kinds of materials.
Bar Feeder Offers Increased Flexibility
The latest, redesigned version of the Express 332 bar feeder combines elements of the Sprint and Express series to offer improved rigidity and flexibility, the company says.
Automatic Magazine Bar Feeders
The Quick Load Servo 80 S2 automatic magazine loader for short bars (14” – 63”, not to exceed the spindle length) accommodates barstock diameters from ¼” to 3 1/8” (6 mm – 80 mm).
The Evolution of Feeding Barstock
When the ancient Egyptians employed the first known turning machines, productivity was probably not a top-of-mind issue. Given an abundance of slave labor, it’s likely the pharaohs enjoyed relatively low production costs. Today, of course, improving productivity is critical in any manufacturing operation that does not rely on plentiful, cheap labor.
