Increase Productivity With ATS Systems Bar Feeders
Bar feeders are devices that automate the process of feeding bars into a lathe or milling machine. They are commonly used in manufacturing operations that require high-volume, repetitive machining of bar-stock material.
By using an ATS Systems Bar Feeder, manufacturers can achieve several benefits that can lead to increased shop productivity:
- Improved efficiency: Bar feeders automate the process of loading and unloading material, allowing machines to run continuously without the need for manual intervention. This can help reduce the amount of time required to produce parts and increase the overall throughput of the shop.
- Reduced material waste: Bar feeders can help reduce material waste by automatically feeding the optimal amount of material into the machine, minimizing the need for excess material, and improving the accuracy of the machining process.
- Increased accuracy: By automating the material feeding process, bar feeders can help improve the accuracy and consistency of the machining process. This can lead to better quality parts and reduced scrap rates.
- Enhanced worker safety: By eliminating the need for manual loading and unloading of materials, bar feeders can help reduce the risk of worker injury and improve overall safety in the shop.
Overall, the use of bar feeders can help manufacturers achieve higher levels of efficiency, accuracy, and safety, which can lead to increased shop productivity and profitability. Contact your ATS Systems Regional Manager today to learn how we can help increase productivity in your shop.
