Given how important cycle-time reduction is these days, having machine operators waiting around for coolant mist to dissipate from a machine’s enclosure before changing parts is an expensive waste of time. That’s why Haas engineers designed an Enclosure Exhaust System that is easy to use, simple to maintain – and, best of all, costs about half as much as what the compet... (read more)
After hundreds of hours watching operators use our very popular Servo Bar 300 bar feeders, our engineers went back to the drawing board with the goal of making Haas bar feeder operations even easier and more efficient. The result is the all-new Haas Bar Feeder, which really does provide a more simplified and affordable way to automate part production on Haas turning centers. It fe... (read more)
