Edge Technologies Bar Feeder Automates Short Production Runs

The Rebel 80 Servo v3 is a specialized solution for automating short production runs at an economical price.

Edge Technologies has released an updated version of its Rebel 80 short loading machine. According to the company, the Rebel 80 Servo v3’s enhanced features and user-friendly design make it a specialized solution for automating short production runs at an economical price.

The Rebel 80 Servo v3 features an improved conversational control with a new touchscreen human-machine interface (HMI) and 300-program storage. The system is well suited for advanced interfacing and more involved applications like shaft loading, while still prioritizing ease to use for short-run applications that require quick changeovers.

Edge Technologies has added rollers to the V tray, two polycarbonate windows to observe bar loading and a folding axial shift (X axis) that streamlines the footprint and allows for maintenance access and spindle-liner changeover.

The Rebel 80 Servo v3 also enables loading configurations beyond the standard feeding from the rear with the option to configure the magazine to feed from the front. Additional key advantages include an optional kit to automate shaft loading and an extended magazine rack.

“The Rebel 80 Servo v3 represents a paradigm shift in production bar working,” says Kevin Meehan, president of Edge Technologies. “Its innovative design is the culmination of years of customer feedback combined with the company’s almost 40 years of magazine bar feeding experience.”
