Bucci Industries - Continuously Raising the Bar

 

ELITE 112

MAGAZINE BAR FEEDER

Features & Benefits

Highlights
• To respond to the growing needs of the medical and other small precision parts manufacturing industries, the Elite 112 is totally innovative in terms of performance, flexibility and simplicity.
• The Elite 112 feeds bars for Swiss applications from .028” to .512” (0.7mm – 13mm), even on lathes with very high spindle RPMs and headstock acceleration speeds without any limitations to lathe performance.

Features
• High rotation speeds
• High acceleration headstock synchronization
• Excellent small diameter bar handling
• Job setup values can be stored in a library in the controls to be re-use for quick setup on future jobs for the same part number. No special adjustments are needed to work with small diameter stock

HIGH ROTATION SPEEDS
Closed, precision, round section guide channels and high performance rotating tips enables the Elite 112 to function easily with even the fastest spindles. Compare this to guides that must remain partially open along their entire length to allow for bar pusher movement or rotating tips with standard RPM bearings and tolerances.
HEADSTOCK SYNCHRONIZATION
The Elite 112 boasts and ultra low mechanical synchronization inertia (40% less than other common designs) to allow for precision following of high acceleration lathe headstocks, even those actuated by linear motors. This allows for feeding bar diameters down to.031” even with lathe accelerations twice as high as those handled by other designs.
FLEXIBILITY
Retooling time for the Elite 112 is only 4 minutes thanks to the use of quick change guide channels and the elimination of the multiple adjustments required by other magazine designs.
SMALL BAR HANDLING
Use of a lift and transfer magazine ensures reliability of bar selection and loading.

MASTER 880/12’/MP

MAGAZINE BAR FEEDER

Features & Benefits

Snap-In Channel Sections - The round section guide channels are fully closed and lubricated during operation. If for any reason, they need to be changed (e.g damage or long-term wear), the entire set
can be completely replaced without tools in less than 3 minutes. Guide sections are also guaranteed interchangeable with previous Master series guides.

Front Bushing - The urethane front bushing, sized to the bar stock being run, accurately guides the bar between the feeder and the lathe. This intermediate “steady rest” is lubricated, assists in
dampening vibration during operation, and opens as the bar pusher nears. The time needed to replace the two half-bushings is less than 30 seconds and requires no tools.

Soft drop bar loading - All individual bars (regardless of diameter) are captured upon release from the material storage tray and mechanically lowered into place.

Exceptional Rigidity - The results of precision design, experience and close attention to manufacturing ensures the very highest levels of torsion and longitudinal rigidity. These elements combine to increase the level of dampening bar vibration during operation

Axial Shift Device - The bar feeder is engineered and equipped with, “built-in” axial shifting device (800 mm [31”]). The quick release feature allows working access to the lathe
