The Quick Load Servo 80 S2 automatic magazine loader accommodates bar lengths ranging from 14" to 63" (not to exceed the spindle length) and diameters ranging from 1/4" to 3 1/8" (6 to 80 mm). The bar feeders increase productivity through reliable loading and by enabling optimum machine spindle speeds, the company says.
 
The loader includes three pushers to cover a broad barstock diameter range for fixed or traveling-headstock turning machines with bar capacities measuring 1 5/8", 2", 2 1/2", 2 5/8" and 3". According to the company, a patented loading mechanism; automatic bar-diameter adjustment for bar selection fingers and centerline alignment; and an easy-to-use, menu driven, prompting remote control contribute to the enhanced range, quiet loading, smooth bar feeding (with or without turret) and quick changeovers of the loader.
 

Other productivity enhancements include Additional 15-sec. partial change-overs within the pusher range either by direct data entry or via part number recall from the library of up to 500 part programs; automatic torque and speed adjustment; X- or Z-axis retraction system; and on-board storage of spindle liners and pushers.
