The LNS highly affordable solution to automatically load long bars from 5 mm to 52 mm into fixed and sliding headstock turning machines. The Alpha 552 is a heavy duty design to withstand production processes running at optimum RPMs. High guiding quality, low noise and effective vibration-dampening are guaranteed from start to finish.

Easy to use remote control (HMI)
The prompting remote control is operator friendly and ensures the interaction between the bar feeder and the lathe, and therefore the production process can be run safely and efficiently. The setup is easy and takes less than 1 minute on the panel.

Changeover simplicity
Changeover of bar diameter on magazine tray is performed by a simple manual adjustment via the changeover lever, no tool required. A three position scale allows users to visually see where their new adjustment is aligned for accuracy and quick selection.

For complete diameter changeover, the guiding elements can easily and quickly be replaced. No tool required with this simple and reliable design.

Greater bar stock stability and less oscillation inside the lathe
The 2-position hydrostatic front stabilizer is set to the bar diameter and automatically opens to the pusher diameter as it feeds through to provide hydrostatic support from start to finish.

Safer operation and optimum RPM with sliding headstock machines
The LNS Swiss safety connection for sliding headstock machines eliminates the unsupported area between the bar feed and machine tool to provide greater safety and better bar stock support. It consists of a series of telescoping tubes that extend in sections to maintain a continuous connection between the Alpha 552 and the machine sliding headstock.

Alpha 552 includes an assortment of reduction tubes to use within the Swiss safety connection and the lathe headstock. The inside diameters of these reduction tubes match those of the bar feed’s guide channels.
