Scout 320 Bar Feeder

Make: EDGE | Bar Length: 12' | Bar Diameter: 0.118” – 1.062”

The Scout 320 is a magazine style automatic bar feeder designed for feeding round, square and hexagonal bar stock in lengths up to 12′, in a diameter range of 3-27 mm, into CNC lathes.

The Scout 320 comes equipped with a Mistubishi controller and Servo drive standard. It also features dual anti-vibration devices that stabilize the bar stock at two critical points between the guide channel and lathe spindle maximizing RPM potential. The polyurethane guide channels increase strength and stability.

If you need a quality bar feeder on a limited budget, look no further than the Scout 320 SE.
