1st Machine Tool Accessories has introduced the Master 80 UP HyperFlexible full-length bar magazine from Iemca, a redesigned version of the Master 80 HyperFlexible product. The machine has been given a new loading system that allows bars to be presented ergonomically at a height between knee and pelvis without bending the back or arms, so operators no longer need to handle bars at chest height or lean into the rack.

Master 80 HyperFlexible bar magazine

Stock can be transported to the loading position by forklift truck, hand pallet truck, overhead crane, a hoist or a handling trolley. The bars then enter the machine via an inclined chute and are raised one by one to rack level automatically by a fully guarded, integral, vertical lift system.

Three sizes of magazine are available for feeding stock of 3.3m, 3.8m and 4.3m maximum length. The magazine has a 600mm capacity (for example, 10 bars of 60mm diameter) and loading height can be set at between 500–1,128mm to suit the model of fixed-headstock lathe.

The Master 80 HP HyperFlexible has an installed weight of 1.7 tonnes. Extreme torsional and longitudinal rigidity is complemented by a hydrodynamic guide channel and a bar pusher, which is supported by two pairs of self-adjusting rollers to further minimise vibration. Even hexagonal section stock can be turned without undue vibration.

The magazine’s core design provides flexibility for users that set up jobs frequently across a range of bar diameters without the inconvenience of spending much time changing the guide channel each time. This means that changeover from one bar to the next can be accomplished in around one minute, leading to minimal lathe idle time. Only the pusher collet and the two-part front bushing need to be exchanged. On other bar feeders, from three to six different sizes of channel would be needed to span a bar diameter range of 15–80mm.

High precision is achieved during the feeding process due to the brushless, electronically controlled motor that constantly regulates bar speed, torque and bar-feed position. Further advantages of the Iemca Master 80 UP HyperFlexible are automatic operation, the capacity to retrieve the remnant, and an axial shifting device that allows rapid access to the machine tool for maintenance and adjustment.
