  • Patent number: 8146465
    Abstract: An installation for sequential loading of bars of material in a machining center includes a frame, a first device, and a second device. The frame includes at least one first arcuate bearing surface and at least one second arcuate bearing surface connected to the first bearing surface at a first station. The first device includes a first elongated body having a peripheral first face engaging the at least one first bearing surface and a plurality of first longitudinal cavities in the first face. The first elongated body is configured to rotate such that the first bearing surface blocks an opening of the first longitudinal cavities between a first position where a bar is loaded into the first longitudinal cavity and a second position where a bar exits the first longitudinal cavity at the first station.

  • Publication number: 20090211413
    Abstract: Installation for the sequential loading (1) of bars of material, referred to as bars (2), into a machining center (4), this installation including in particular a frame (5) and being characterized in that it is equipped: with a first device (700) which is, on the one hand, constituted by a first elongated body (7), the volume of which is substantially determined by a peripheral surface, referred to as first face (70), and comprising a plurality of first longitudinal cavities (71) which are each able to accommodate a bar (2) and each include a first opening (72) made in said first face (70), on the other hand, is able to carry out a fractional rotation about a first axis (73), aligned longitudinally, particularly carrying bars (2), so as to present the first cavities (71) in sequence to at least one first station (8), with a second device (900) which is, on the one hand, constituted by a second elongated body (9), the volume of which is substantially determined by a peripheral face, referred to as the s
