Edge Technologies FMB 20-100 bar feeder includes quick-change polyurethane guide channels that allow for quiet operation at high RPM while feeding round, square or hex barstock. This unit also offers a one size channel set that automatically adjusts for all material sizes. This feeder is compatible with all types of sliding or fixed, CNC or cam operated lathes with spindle bores up to 102 mm.

With the unit weighing more than 8,200 pounds, this keeps vibration from bent bars to a minimum, so a smooth operation is guaranteed, the company says. Double-pusher space-saving design is 4-foot shorter than single pusher bar feeders.

The Turbo 20-100 features a controller with a servomotor drive to the feed mechanism. Flexible control of bar length and feed rate guarantees the optimum practical and economic use of the bar feeder. Easy options on the operator control panel guarantee proper interaction between the bar feeder and the CNC lathe, with parameters clearly shown on the text display, the company says.
