Short bar loading magazine MULTI-3000

The short bar loading magazine Multi 3000 was developed in Switzerland. Manufactured in Germany with first-class materials and components. The MULTI-3000 guarantees long-term reliability. It impresses with its service and environmentally friendly design. It is also a fully electric and servo-controlled magazine. Easy access to all parts makes it extremely user-friendly. It is very simple to understand and therefore easy to operate.

Set-up and changeover is possible within 2-5 minutes due to the well thought-out design. The patented lifting mechanism guarantees an impact-free and fast loading cycle. Further features are the smooth material feed, an optimal control and monitoring of the material feed, as well as the exact positioning of the bar without mechanical stop.

Due to its design, the Multi 3000 does not require a shifting device to change the Spindle Liner. A shifting device is optionally available in X- and Z-axis and in different lengths.

Compatible with almost all types of lathes. For example: Mazak, Okuma, DMG Mori, SMEC, Doosan, Nakamura, CMZ, Hurco, Takamaz, Hwacheon and many more.

We have developed the Multi 3000SL especially for Lathe types with a large distance between machine cover and spindle end. For further information please visit the product page or

For short bar loading magazines, the bar length is limited to the length of the lathe spindle. Together with the SamSpindle, the bar feeder Multi 3000 is able to load up to 1.6m bars.

As standard, the short bar feeder can load round and hexagonal bars. Optionally, square bars and special materials can also be loaded. For square bars you need the square loading prism and for special material the Uni-Lifter.

Another option is the Mini Shaft Loader. With this it is possible to load very short bars in a very short time. The Mini Shaft loader was designed as an additional option to the SamSpindle. This means that the bar loader can load bars up to 1.6m in length as well as bars from 40mm in length.

Do you also need a Spindle Liner for your lathe spindle? We can also offer you this as an option to match your machine. For further information, simply follow the respective links by clicking on the terms.
