Hydrafeed raises the bar at MACH 2014

Added to MTDCNC by MTDCNC on 16 April 2014

The MACH debut for Hydrafeed's new MSV80 and MSV65 short magazine barfeed systems delivered exceptional results with a number of sales and a high level of enquiries at the UK manufacturing's showpiece event. The show premiere for the new MSV80 and MSV65 barfeed units yielded remarkable enquiry levels, as potential customers recognised the quality of the full servo-driven barfeed system that eliminates the need for compressed air.

Furthermore, by utilising servo technology the new MSV barfeed units are unrivalled for performance and accuracy. Alongside the new high performance barfeed units, Hydrafeed also demonstrated market leading and established products such as the MV65 barfeed, the MX1B and the RotaRack units. All of which, proved themselves once again as industry favourites, with a number of units sold to BTMA members on adjacent stands.

The new MSV line from Hydrafeed incorporates a wealth of technology as standard that can only be found as optional extras with competitor barfeeds. As standard, the MSV offers complete servo control on all axes with precision ground servo driven ball screws. These precision ground ball screws utilise the same technology that is incorporated into high-end machine tools, ensuring that Hydrafeed's new system can guarantee a bar positional accuracy of 0.1mm, far beyond anything else available.

The MSV80 has a standard bar diameter range of 5 to 80mm with the capacity for bar lengths from 200 to 1550mm with bespoke solutions available to suit the individual customer. Whilst the MSV65 provides a bar diameter range of 5 to 65mm and bar length capacities comparable to that of the MSV80..

Standard features on the MSV line include bar length measurement with the ability to accept random bar lengths, a barfeed or shaft loading system, a push-rod backstop facility and a HMI screen to display the 100 part program storage system.

Reflecting upon the MACH 2014 experience, Hydrafeed's Managing Director, Mr Martyn Page comments: 'We were overwhelmed by the interest in our new MSV range and the enquiry level is testament to the hard work and tireless effort expended by our R&D team in developing such a sought after product. With the new products lining up alongside established technology, we had a great mix of products that brought record enquiry levels for Hydrafeed.'
