Different Types of Bar Feeds Equipment

Automatics & Machinery offers a variety of bar feed equipment to cater to different manufacturing processes. Our range includes:

  • Bar Loader/Magazine Type, Hydraulic & Mechanical
  • Bar Feeds, Mechanical, Hydrostatic & Hydrodynamic
  • The hydrodynamic bar feed system uses oil to both exert pressure on the pusher piston for advancing the stock as well as supply oil to the front of the feed tube for developing hydrodynamic support. As the bar spins, oil encircles it and pushes against it, as well as against the feed tube ID, to create a fluid bearing or hydrodynamic wedge. This action serves to center the bar stock in the feed tube, as well as acts as a noise dampener. As bar speed increases, the centering forces increase.
