Lexair Introduces Redesigned Rhinobar Bar Feeder
LEXINGTON, KY (November 16, 2004) - Lexair, Inc. is excited to unveil a new and improved RHINOBAR bar feeder. The new RHINOBAR has all of the classic features of the popular Mini RHINOBAR, now on a larger scale. This new addition to the RHINOBAR line features fully redesigned pedestals and barrel clamps.
These new features will make the machine more stable to prevent any whip or spin of the bar. The pedestals and barrel clamps will also make the RHINOBAR easier to use for the worker. In addition to being more secure, the new additions to the machine will make installation of the RHINOBAR much easier and faster.
These new improvements are an addition to the same classic. The new RHINOBAR works virtually the same. The RHINOBAR, priced significantly lower than competitive systems, can be customized to handle virtually any size or shape bar stock by changing the feed tube size. It is available with tube sizes ranging from 1/4" to 2 3/4" in 1/8" increments, accommodating bar stock diameters from 1/8" to 2 3/4", and up to 12' long. The customer's choice of four feed tube sizes is included as standard equipment. Customized tube sizes are also available.
The RHINOBAR's design helps reduce shop noise levels while improving bar stock stability. Oil fills the gap between the bar stock and feed tube, acting as a noise damping support. As the bar begins to turn, hydrodynamic forces move it toward the center of the feed tube. Centering forces are increased as bar speed increases. Oil flow and pressure are controlled with a single Lexair valve.
The bar feeder's front swing-out mechanism includes a large barrel clamp to help reduce bar vibration. Ergonomically placed controls and a safety interlock switch facilitate system operation. An end-of-bar signal and auto pusher retraction allows the RHINOBAR system to operate unattended.
Lexair is a manufacturer and marketer of heavy duty, precision hydrodynamic bar feed systems; magazine style short bar loaders; fixed length, direct mount and wrench operated collet chucks; ProDyne® and Full Bore® chucks; collet workholding systems and CNC bar pullers.
