IEMCA's Elite 112 bar feeder was designed for use in the medical and other small precision parts manufacturing industries. It offers a precise lift and transfer magazine system and can feed bars from 0.7 mm to 12.7 mm. The bar feeder has a minimum inertia (-40 percent) mechanical synchronization system to ensure precision following of headstocks, including those actuated by linear motors, regardless of bar diameter. This low inertia and high speed electronic power transmission control allow the bar feeder to synchronize perfectly with the ultra-high headstock acceleration on Swiss-type machines.

The bar feeder has been engineered with closed, calibrated, round section channels, enabling high performance, even with high-rotation spindle speeds, the company says. No special adjustments are necessary when switching jobs and quick-fit channels help minimize retooling time.
