Image: Linear SB1 CNC Lathe Bar Feed

The SB1 bar feeder. Designed for use with CNC lathes the bar feed provides increased bar output productivity by fully utilising your CNC lathe’s capacity. The SB1 is ideally matched for the requirements of the Linear CNC Lathe user.
The SB1 is:

* Ideal for short production runs using a bar feed.
* Cost-effective without compromising on quality.
* Easy to use with a simple control panel.
* 6-80mm dia including profiles.
* 1520mm max push length.
* Services required, 240v electircs, 75-100 psi pneumatics.
* Machine M code, chuck and guard door signals from lathe.

As illustrated, the SB1 is a swing aside unit that allows the operator to load new bars manually, giving production the flexibility to choose fast reliable feeding out of bar stock to the CNC lathe rather than the toolpost mounted methods currently available on the market. Simply push the AUTO button and the bar feed is ready to use.

The SB1 bar feed has been designed and manufactured in the UK by drawing on over two decades of industry experience and observation in production engineering. The need for a bar feed focused on shorter production runs after listening to the numerous firms in the UK and internationally, which are keen to produce high quality precision products but needed a more cost-effective system for bar feeding.
