BARFEEDING SYSTEMS

With over 100,000 units installed worldwide, LNS bar feeders are universally recognized for their exceptional bar guiding technique Hydrobar®.

In the most varied applications, the LNS bar feeders ensure maximum productivity on all types of fixed or sliding headstock lathes. In addition LNS bar feeders offer record reliability and flexibility and the fastest diameter changeover in the world.

CHIP MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS

The machining of parts by milling or turning requires an effective and continuous evacuation of chips to prevent production slowdown or stops and therefore increase machine uptime.

LNS offers a complete range of chip conveyors covering all material types and chip shapes. In addition based on the filtration requirements LNS chip conveyors can be equipped with up to 50 microns filtration systems.
 

COOLANT MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS

Machine tool  productivity is a constant concern.  LNS offers a complete range of high pressure coolant systems and tramp oil removal systems that guarantee optimal lubrication allowing a considerable increase of machining speeds.  Additional benefits are improved surface finish of the parts,  increased lifespan of the cutting tools and the machine tool.
 

AIR FILTRATION SYSTEMS

Pollution created by metal cutting machine tools working with all kinds of coolant can be eliminated with LNS' mist collection series.
 

WORKHOLDING SYSTEMS

From precision chucks to automatic steady rest systems, that are custom engineered for specific applications to provide better stability, speed and product quality.

Preparing for Lights-Out Production
As manufacturers face the challenges of reducing cost-per-part while meeting quality and delivery demands, adding a workerless third shift is a tantalizing possibility. It’s also a bit scary.

Oil/Coolant Mist Collector

Oil/Coolant Mist Collector Addresses Efficiency Challenges
These oil/coolant mist collectors can contribute to employee safety and a better work environment all around.

Automatic Bar Feeder

Choosing an Automatic Bar Feeder
The bar feeder is the most common form of automation for turning operations. Selecting the right one requires consideration of the applications for which it will be used.

Streamline Production with Standardized Processes
To alleviate overlap in communications for the manufacturing community, the MTConnect standardized protocol was developed for CNC machines and other manufacturing equipment.

Celebrating 40 Years by Giving Back
To honor the 40th anniversary of LNS Group (based in Orvin, Switzerland), the company’s more than 800 employees have committed to give back to their communities through public service.

Competition and Technology Drive the Pace of Manufacturing
IMTSTV's Penny Brown recently spoke with Steve Fritzinger, from NetApp, about competition and technology driving the manufacturing industry's pace and why companies must adapt to this change if they want to survive.

Shopfloor Data and the Future of Manufacturing
Redundancy is far too common in many areas of life. Standardized processes that streamline production might be the perfect solution.

Technologies for Chip and Coolant Management
To the casual observer, removing the chips created during a metalworking manufacturing process may seem about as complicated as emptying a waste basket.

Working Smarter
Last Word

Communication Among Workcell Components
An Ethernet-based system acts as a conduit for relaying operational data between the programming software, controller, bar feeder, machine tool and parts unloader.

The Evolution of Feeding Barstock
When the ancient Egyptians employed the first known turning machines, productivity was probably not a top-of-mind issue. Given an abundance of slave labor, it’s likely the pharaohs enjoyed relatively low production costs. Today, of course, improving productivity is critical in any manufacturing operation that does not rely on plentiful, cheap labor.
