The new CAV magazine bar feeder is configured to the speeds, torque, power and axis movements of the Cincom machine to which it's attached. It responds to the headstock's slightest movement, assuring high levels of precision and productivity. The turning center and CAV bar feeder are designed to share the same controller, hydraulics, lubricating system and electronics. This reduces the number of components needed to run the unit and in turn cuts floor space requirements and cost. Programming the bar feeder is as simple as programming an additional Z axis. The CAV bar feeder is equipped to handle round, square and hexagonal stock with diameters ranging from 0.078" to 3/4", and lengths to 13'. A spring loaded end collet automatically centers new bars, eliminating the need for chamfering. A bar and spindle stabilizing mechanism aligns the bar's center of rotation with the center of the spindle. Forces are evenly distributed to protect the spindle from excessive wear. As the bar rotates, it becomes hydrostatically supported in a bath of oil, and perfectly centered in the guide channels. The bar feeder remains quiet and vibration free, even when turning 13' long bars at 12,000 rpm.
