GFS

Glebar's Guidewire Feeding System has its own independent control and is compatible with Royal Master™, Glebar and other Guidewire, Catheter Bodies or Metal Tubing grinding equipment.

The Glebar Advantage

Glebar already makes the most reliable feeder for Guidewire on the market using tried-and-tested vacuum feeding technology. Now we've transformed it into a stand-alone device which can seamlessly connect and feed parts into existing third-party or Glebar grinders. We've also upgraded the control system and added a 7-inch color HMI for simple and easy access to all aspects of feeder operation, which would traditionally be set from the HMI on the grinder. The feeder allows multiple modes of operation, including a completely standalone cycling mode that doesn't require any signals from a grinder. The Glebar Guidewire Feeding System is designed to feed long products, such as Guidewires, Catheter Bodies and Metal Tubing to secondary process devices like laser marking or stamping machines, into any machine, printer etc. 

Compatible Glebar machines are:
