Compatible with Swiss-style and fixed headstock lathes, Express automatic bar feeds from LNS America, Inc. facilitate partial change-overs in as little as 2 minutes and complete change-overs in 8 minutes. The quick change-overs are made possible through automatic adjustments built into the machines, says the company. Operators input values through the control keypad.

 

According to the company, the hydrostatic bearing design precisely supports barstock to allow the lathe to operate at high rpm without sacrificing accuracy. In addition, the Swiss machine connection tube supports material in the critical gap as the machine spindle moves forward.

 

Intelligent Synchronization monitors sliding headstock and bar feeding movements to anticipate headstock motion and synchronize the movements of the pusher and lathe headstock. A 3-S synchronization option is available for special applications such as running bar diameters smaller than 3 mm or for materials such as titanium, platinum and other challenging alloys.

  • A Study Of The Steady Rest

    When the length and stiffness of a workpiece make it difficult to machine without distorting or deflecting the part, many manufacturers turn to the steady rest as a workpiece support device. This is especially true for long axles, shafts and similar parts used in automotive or heavy equipment applications, and in oil drilling components. The most common application is to support a workpiece during turning or milling and, increasingly, during secondary operations such as ID drilling, boring and producing end face bolthole patterns.
