The Haas bar feeder, which is designed to provide a more simplified and affordable way to automate part production on Haas turning centers, features a re-engineered, heavy duty, yet compact, design that boosts productivity and streamlines turning operations, according to the company.

Designed and built for use with Haas ST-10 through ST-35 and DS series CNC turning centers, the bar feeder connects to the Haas control. The rollaway design is said to provide easy access to the rear of the lathe spindle for quick liner adapter and liner changes, while the twin storage racks put the liners right where they are needed–in the front and ready for quick swaps.

Bar diameter change-overs are designed to be fast and simple with an ergonomically placed height-adjustment hand wheel at the right-front side of the bar feeder. The quick-change pushrod design requires no tools to change, and the pushrod can be used as a stop.
