The company’s Hydrobar Sprint 552 and 565 bar feeds provide increased stability while reducing bar vibration. As a result, these bar feeds improve productivity by enabling increased machine spindle rpm, improving surface finish and extending tool life. Both models have improved stiffness to weight ratios. The structural design provides stability within a compact footprint. The 552 accepts barstock diameters from 5 mm to 52 mm. The model 565 accepts barstock from 5 mm to 65 mm. Both units operate with fixed or sliding headstock machines and can operate in either hydrodynamic or hydrostatic modes. Hydrostatic operation permits users to cut as much as 12 ft barstock at optimum spindle speeds without harmful vibrations. The hydrodynamic principle allows for a wider range of barstock diameters, fewer guiding elements and 2- to 8-minute changeovers, all of which reduce downtime, improve productivity and support unattended operation. Other features include remnant disposal through the lathe or through the bar feed; no manual intervention for bar feed selection and front stabilizer adjustments; servo-driven, automatic torque and speed according to bar diameter; and setups through a menu-driven, prompting remote control.
