Bar Feeder for Small Diameter Bar Stock

LNS America, Inc. offers its GT 112-E automatic magazine bar feeder, as well as the SFcompact 50-micron filtering chip conveyor.

GT 112-E

"The GT 112-E takes the worry out of running small diameter bar stock unattended on sliding headstock machines," said a company spokesperson. This compact bar feeder loads bars with diameters from 0.8 mm to 11 mm (12.7 mm with bar preparation).

Available in two versions for 12'-2" or 6'-6" bars, GT 112-E has a dual U-shaped guiding channel with a patented sectional cover that, combined with a self-centering bar clamping system, matches the entire diameter range of the lathe.

Additional benefits and features include:

  • Two minute or less set-up time using the hand-held touchscreen remote HMI to automatically set pushing torque, forward speed and feeding length
  • Single pitch screw magazine keeps very small bars separated for consistent and reliable bar loading
  • Electro-mechanical headstock synchronization of bar stock
  • No need for spindle liners with included LNS safety joint pipe spindle reduction system that completely contains the bar
  • High capacity magazine tray holds up to 30 bars with 7 mm diameter and under, and 15 bars over 7 mm
  • Easy maintenance access with optional 400 mm Z-axis bar feeder retraction system.


The SFcompact is a compact, 50-micron filtering chip conveyor with patented self-cleaning, dual filters that can be taken out in just 15 minutes, if necessary, after removing the chip conveyor.

SFcompact uses no more floor space than a typical hinge belt conveyor and, in most cases, can be used with an existing coolant tank. It is designed to handle virtually all chip types and sizes, from stringy stainless steel to fine brass and aluminum.

Benefits and features include:

  • Suitable for machining a wide range of materials
  • Provides consistent 50-micron filtration
  • Filter system is integrated into a rigid frame to reduce footprint
  • Hardened track and other wear-resistant components enhance long life
  • Backed by over 30 years of chip conveyor experience.

LNS designs, manufactures, sells and supports bar feeding systems, chip and coolant management systems, work support devices and air filtration systems.
