1st Machine Tools (1st MTA) has introduced the Elite bar feeder from IEMCA. Designed to feed bar up to 3.7m, the Elite is available in two versions: 112 and 220.

The 112 is aimed at high-precision micro-mechanical industries and is suitable for use with stock from 12.7mm diameter down to 0.8mm, even on lathes with very high-spindle speeds and headstock accelerations.

The 220 is designed for sliding headstock mill-turning applications using bar in the diameter range 2mm to 23mm. It is suitable for the manufacture of medical and other small precision parts.

Product specifications

  • Maximum feed and return speeds are 1,000mm/s and 1,600mm/s respectively

Elite 112

  • Fast accurate operation achieved through use of closed, calibrated, round section channels combined with high-speed rotation
  • Custom-engineered, low-inertia components allow precise synchronisation with all types of machine headstock, including those actuated by linear motors
  • Has capacity for 28 bars, which can be loaded in 26 seconds
  • Material magazine features a stepping action that ensures reliable operation with small-diameter raw material and the unit’s purpose-designed, snap-in guide channels enable changeover times as short as four minutes
  • Library of default settings, accessed through its control panel, means no adjustments are normally required during the equipment’s service life

Elite 220

  • Quiet in operation
  • Performs without any limitations to lathe operation
  • Good small-diameter bar handling is achieved using a walking beam magazine — ideal for stock diameters from 2–6mm
  • Users can switch to gravity feed for larger diameters in less than two minutes
  • The bar feeder can be configured with one type of magazine or both, according to customer requirement
  • Redesigned bar pusher with dual bearings to complement high-performance Swiss-type machines with rapid accelerations and rotational speeds up to 20,000rev/min
  • A vibration-damping bush holding device supports the rotating bar
  • Job set-up values can be stored in a library in the control to be reused for quick changeover when running repeat jobs
