Minimag 20

Make: FMB | Bar Length: 12' | Bar Diameter: .078” – .787”

The FMB Minimag 20 is an automatic bar loading magazine feeder for processing bars in the diameter range of 2-20 mm in lengths from 6’ to 14’ on CNC lathes.

Equipped with a Swiss-type headstock synchronization device, peck drilling and threading on small diameter bars is simple and done with high-tolerances.

To increase the productivity on your Swiss type lathe, the Minimag 20 is a smart choice.

Features: Minimag 20 Bar Feeder

  • Bar diameter capacity: 2 mm to 20 mm (.078” to .787”)
  • Automatic loading magazine — 7 linear inches of rack capacity
  • Polyurethane guide channel system — noise & vibration dampening
  • Ultra quick change guide channels and pusher —10 minute full changeover, 3 minute changeover within same channel set
