The large-capacity Tracer 65V/80V hydrodynamic magazine bar feeder from CNC Indexing & Feeding Technologies can accommodate bars up to 12-feet long in diameters from 10 mm – 65 mm and, following a simple channel change, to as much as 80 mm in diameter. The feeder holds multiple bars, depending on the diameter size. For example, it can hold 36 bars that are 10 mm in diameter.

The 65V/80V bar feeder is engineered for users of fixed- and sliding-headstock CNC lathes who need to feed production-run quantities of long, large-diameter barstock. According to the company, an operator can adjust the machine quickly for different bar sizes without any tools, and fast changes of guide channels increase throughput while minimizing change-over and setup times. Torque force and speed are easily adjustable to assure consistent feeding, the company says. All Tracer bar feeders feature the external blue light display that provides visual monitoring of bar status and alarms.
