    Detailed Specification

    A Bar Support Unit (BSU) can be fitted to any of the Hydrafeed short magazine Barfeeds

    The BSU is installed between the front of the Barfeed and the rear of the lathe. It has a robust build quality with heavy duty bearings that support the bar, reducing bar-whip and vibration

    The BSU provides the facility to run bars longer than the lathe headstock, and safely supports any bar revolving outside the confines of the lathe headstock. Users are able to cut standard 3 metre bar lengths in half, which prolongs unmanned running time and minimises material wastage

    Different lengths of BSUs are available and can be used as a standalone piece of equipment where a Barfeed is not required.
