Features: Turbo 5-65 Auto Adjust

Resize Diameter Automatically

By entering the bar diameter in the control, the self adjusting channel automatically resizes to the new value.

See Larger

Eliminate Additional Channels

Movable guide segments are automatically set to the bar diameter eliminating the need for additional channels.

See Larger

Roller Steady Rest

This device guides the bar stock between the lathe and bar feeder. Rollers or blocks provide the ideal guiding of round or profiled material.

See Larger


A mechanical gripping device is used to both insert the new bar into the bar stock collet and to extract the remnant.

See Larger


Precise sychronous toothed belt drive facilitates accurate feed tolerances.

See Larger

Bosch Control

Bosch controller with servo motor drive to the feed mechanism. Flexible control of length and rate of feed, guarantee the optimum practical and therefore economic use of the magazine.

Loading Functions

See a graphic describing the loading, bar separation, and processing functions of the FMB line.

Guide Channel

This device guides the round and profiled bar material between the guide channel and the lathe.

Swiss Headstock Sync (optional)

The headstock synchronization device allows the Turbo 3-26 to be compatible with fast moving, sliding headstock lathes.

Bar Pusher

A swing out bar pusher bar system reduces the total length of the loading magazine.
