Bar Support Unit

Reduce bar wastage with a Hydrafeed (UK) Bar Support Unit, it can be fitted to any of the ‘short magazine’ Barfeeders, and is installed in front of the barfeeder, behind the lathe. It enables you to run bars that are longer than the lathe headstock, and will safely support the revolving bar outside the confines of the lathe headstock.

With this Bar Support Unit, you can cut standard 3 metre bar lengths in half – enabling your machine to work unmanned for a longer period of time and minimises wastage.

Different lengths of Bar Support Units can be used as stand alone pieces, where a barfeeder is not required.
