The FMB Turbo 5-55, 5-65, and Turbo 8-80 are automatic magazine style bar feeders for processing bars in the diameter ranges of 5mm to 55mm, 5mm to 65mm, and 8mm to 80mm and in lengths from 12ft to 14ft on CNC lathes. Quick change polyurethane guide channels allow for quiet operation at high rpm while feeding round, square, or hex bar stock. The product line is compatible with all kinds of fixed headstock lathes, and Swiss-type synchronization is also available.

Process specifications Drive: Precise synchronous toothed belt drive facilitates accurate feed tolerances Profiled material: The feed mechanism is automatically pulsed to ensure the profiled material is successfully located in the lathe collet/chuck In-feed control: The new bar is automatically positioned in the lathe, ready for facing before the first component is produced. Part to part feed out can be controlled without a dead stop required Gripper: A mechanical gripper uses a force of up to 1,500N to press the bar stock into the collet and pull out the material remnant. The gripper, is arranged on a side block, performs an action in the function. It is not necessary to chamfer the bars if they are cleanly cut Roller steady rest: Guiding the bar stock between the lathe and bar feeder, the rollers or blocks work for round or profiled material. Rollers can be continuously adjusted to the bar diameter and replaced with blocks, supporting profiled material FMB guide channel: The channel is filled with hydraulic oil from the storage tank. Bar rotation creates turbulence which keeps it in the center of the channel. The higher the rotation speed, the better centralization effect; the magazine helps the lathe to achieve optimum cutting conditions
