The Edge Technologies' Patriot Series is a 12' magazine bar feeder for the production turning industry. The Patriot automatically feeds round, square and hexagonal barstock in lengths of as much as 12.5' into CNC lathes. The Patriot 338 feeds stock in a diameter range of 3 to 38 mm and the Patriot 551 in a range of 5 to 51 mm.

This bar feeder features a hand-held remote pendant and a touchscreen with menu-driven parameters. It has memory storage for as many as 36 jobs and the diagnostics and troubleshooting are run from the same control screen.

During cutting operations, the barstock rotates in polyurethane guide channels that are flooded with oil to create a hydrodynamic effect, resulting in higher RPM with reduced noise and vibration. As a standard feature on the Patriot 338 and an option on the 551, the Swiss package includes a synchronization device and telescopic noise. The synchronization device employs an electromagnetic coupling, mechanically linking the lathe headstock's z-axis travel to the bar feeder's pusher to ensure synchronous movement and no loss of connection between the barstock and collet-pusher.

  • What Is The Best Bar Feed System For Production Turning?

    Selecting the right bar feeder can be one of the most important decisions a shop can make. Bar feed systems help improve productivity, throughput and quality, but in order to achieve the most benefit from them it is essential that a bar feed system be matched to the particular needs of the turning operation.

  • Simplifying Machine Load/Unload Automation

    Today, lower part volumes and frequent change-over are changing the offerings of some automation integrators. Standard, off-the-shelf components are being engineered to work together in a large variety of applications and, in some cases, are even portable so they can be moved from machine tool to machine tool.

  • Barfeeding Small Diameters

    This shop may be located off the beaten path but it’s certainly found a successful and profitable home by applying top of the line technology to its medical part production mix.
