The user friendly multi-line display and operation station.
The screen displays all needed information to allow rapid setting and
productive operation of the loading process.

Also used by installation engineers to minimise time for set up and
interface checking.

Left are examples of different screens available to the Rapidfeed 551.

  • Rapidfeed 551 is a Compact Bar Loading System for CNC lathes. With a large magazine capacity allowing long unattended operation. (40 pieces of 25mm or 0.984” bar can be run before reloading is necessary).
  • The 551 has been designed to combine the advantages of auto barloading with small floor space needs.
  • All Electric Drive using VAC Technology and standard 3ph Electric Motors with encoder feedback for precise position control and high reliability.
  • The low investment cost of the 551 coupled with the high productivity gains means that return on investment can be quickly realised (usually in 6-12 months).
  • Large or small batches can be economically run with very short changeover time from one bar diameter to another. Usually less than 3 minutes.
  • With bar material contained within the lathe headstock very high cutting speeds can be used. **
  • When using an appropriate spindle liner the only rotational speed restriction is that imposed by the cutting tool, not bar straightness.

** It is recommended that a Spindle Liner be used forevery 0.08” or 2mm variation in bar diamete
