CNC Indexing & Feeding Technologies’ Tracer Minibar hydrodynamic magazine bar feeder is able to feed bar diameters from 0.8 mm to 12 mm and up to 10 ft. in length.

The Minibar is an ideal solution for customers with fixed headstock and Swiss-type CNC lathes that need to feed large quantities of small barstock for long production runs. Variable barstock sizes can be adjusted quickly without the operator having to use any tools. It is built to allow for fast changes of guide channel sets to increase throughput and minimize change-over and setup times. Torque force and speed is easily adjustable so operators can feed small stock consistently without any issues. This is an important feature that all Tracer series bar feeders provide, the company says.

According to the company, the Tracer Minibar is designed to give Swiss lathe users the ability to feed barstock smaller than 13 mm in diameter at an economical price.
