LNS America’s Quick Load Servo S3 T automatic magazine bar feeder loads ¼"- to 4 ¾"-diameter barstock in lengths ranging from 4" to 63", not to exceed overall spindle length. Fully automatic diameter adjustment enables diameter change within the pusher range in15 sec. or less and complete change-overs in 1 min. or less. A menu-driven touchscreen HMI prompts shape, diameter and part length data entry for automatic change-over adjustments. A parts library stores data for 500 part programs, and an embedded Web server in the PLC enables the bar feeder to share data with the CNC machine via the LNS e-Connect communications tool.

Also available is the LNS SC-500 spray cabin. This mobile device uses an air-filtration system to remove 99 percent of airborne contaminants generated when a compressed air gun is used to clean off machined parts, the company says. The device encloses the parts so oil and coolant residue, chips and other debris can be safely blown off without contaminating the air or factory floor. The large, lockable wheels are designed to move the device around the shop with ease, and it has a side tray to hold tools, instruments and small parts. The filtration system includes a washable pre-filter and a low-noise, single-phase motor. The device is compatible for use with machine tool oils, coolants and non-combustible solvents.
