Bar Feeder

Bar feeders are perhaps the most common material handling accessories in metalworking shops.

Learn about technologies that are perhaps the most common material handling accessories in metalworking shops in Production Machining’s Bar Feeders & Material Handling Zone. Here you’ll find new product listings, case studies and feature articles that detail a variety of ways this equipment is able to make a shop more productive. Also, find related suppliers on this page.

Material handling devices include robots, gantry loading and unloading material handling devices while conveyors, bowl feeders and other types of material handling equipment allow cut-to-length blanks, castings and forgings to be loaded and unloaded. They are designed to deliver a continuous supply of machining stock to machine tools.

One article, for example (“Reducing Production Times with Robotic Automation”), looks at a shop that improved production by almost 90 percent after completely overhauling its processes using manufacturing automation.
