Precision Barfeeder


The Mini Rhinobar barfeeder automatically centers and feeds small-diameter bar stock to maximize the productivity of Swiss-style CNC screw machines and small fixed or sliding-head lathes. Precision BarfeederThe precision-engineered single-tube barfeeder uses the hydrodynamic principle to quickly center 6' (1.8-m) or 12' (3.6-m) bars as small as 0.04" (1-mm) diameter. The bar stock is supported in an oil bath in the feed tube, and as the bar’s rotational speed increases hydrodynamic forces move it toward the center of the tube and stabilize it, delivering shorter cycle times and superior workpiece finishes. Feed tubes ranging from 0.125-1.625" (3.2 to 41-mm) diameter are available in 0.125" (3.2-mm) increments to minimize the bar-to-feed tube clearance and achieve maximum throughput on automotive components, medical devices, motor shafts and other small-diameter, high-production-run parts.
