The Tracer Vs-105XL bar feeder from CNC Indexing & Feeding Technologies is designed for heavy bars ranging to 41/8" (105 mm)  in diameter and measuring as long as 72". The bar feeder’s magazine rack has a maximum capacity of five bars. The external LED light bar provides a visual status of pusher position, amount of bar remaining, notification of last bar and flashing notification of machine or bar feeder alarms.

The touchscreen HMI display system provides automatic system settings and a removable, handheld remote controller. The quick-change pusher can be changed manually without any tools. A top-cut optical sensor precisely measures each bar’s length and automatically adjusts. The rail retract system enables the bar feeder to move back and away from the CNC lathe at a 45-degree angle for spindle liner changes and to provide access to the machine’s headstock area for ease of maintenance. The Vs-105XL bar feeder’s PLC control interfaces with any CNC lathe and features comprehensive databank software.
