FAR has been in the fore front of manufacturing barfeeders for many years. Barfeeders have become the best automation devices. These devices can add hours of untended operating time for part volumes of a few hundred to tens of thousands.
VF Series – Fully Automatic Servo Barfeeder
VF is the worlds first fully automatic barfeeder, which completely eliminates setup change over time like pusher/push rod manual changing,Bar stock centre adjustment etc. This will tremendously save machine down time. Also bar changeover time is less than 15 seconds, thanks to the automatic bar setting mechanism.
QF Series – Short Barfeeder
The QF short barfeeders have become industry standard and are known for their rugged build and reliable operation. These are manufactured in hydraulic, pneumatic, and servo variants. FAR has launched the QF swing all electric servo barfeeder which is easy to setup and operate. This is a very economically priced model.
