Each of the above configurations can be part of the same one-step automatic manufacturing process. These features can be added to the rod in a matter of seconds with no additional handling or operator intervention.
All surfaces that touch the bar, except for the full wrap collet pads are covered with nylon or Delrin® materials to protect the bar. Scrap resulting from nicks or dings occurring from parts moving through the shop will be eliminated with a Bardons & Oliver system.
Further improving your production efficiency, the Bardons & Oliver automatic part unloader can perform as an element of your system, handling finished rod lengths from 6" to 28 feet long. Your team will maximize your response to customers.
