Auto Bar Feeder for Lathes



  • Rollaway design provides easy access to the rear of the lathe spindle for quick liner adapter and liner changes
  • High pushrod speeds for shorter part-to-part cycle times
  • Ability to use the pushrod as a stop
  • Improved mechanical design for increased reliability and performance
  • Easy bar diameter changeover (height adjustment), with better ergonomics
  • Quick-change pushrod design, with no tools needed
  • Storage on the top lid for both pushrod diameters, 3/8" (9.5 mm) and 3/4" (20 mm)
  • Easily accessible storage for all extruded liners


  • 0.375" (9.5 mm) to 3.125" (79.4 mm) diameter bar range; maximum bar diameter is determined by the bar capacity of the lathe
  • 48" (1219 mm) maximum bar length
  • Accuracy of ±0.01" (0.25 mm) feed length with recommended pull-back-style collet closer
  • 15" (381 mm) minimum bar length
  • Tray capacity: 30" (762 mm) staging area; for example, 1" (25 mm) x 30 bars total staging capacity
  • 80 lb (36.3 kg) maximum bar weight; recommended length for steel bars is 36" (914 mm) in order to not exceed weight limit

The Haas Bar Feeder runs directly from the Haas control, and connects directly to the lathe’s electrical cabinet. All bar feed parameters are set at the lathe control.

Note: Requires anchoring to the floor to use the rollaway feature. Requires the purchase of an installation kit specific to the Haas CNC turning center it will be connected to. Not compatible with any gear-drive spindle option on the ST-30 or ST-35. Requires software version 11.21A or later.

High-Speed Machining for VMC/HMC



The high-speed machining option for Haas vertical and horizontal machining centers provides a powerful tool to reduce cycle times and improve accuracy. Testing on complex mold applications has shown a reduction in cycle time of nearly two-thirds, while providing improved accuracy and smoother motion.

Using a motion algorithm called "acceleration before interpolation," combined with full look-ahead, the Haas high-speed machining option provides cutting feeds of up to 1200 inches per minute without risk of distortion to the programmed path. All programmed motions are accelerated before interpolation, which ensures that the movement of each axis does not exceed the acceleration capability of the machine. The look-ahead algorithm determines the fastest feedrate at which one stroke can be blended into another without stopping. The result is higher accuracy, smoother motion and a higher actual feedrate - even with complex part geometry.

Many of today's "high-speed" controls are either very expensive or require a pre-processing mode or special post, which is time-consuming and alters the G-code program. The Haas high-speed machining option accepts ISO standard G code from all major CAM systems.

High-Speed Machining Features:

  • Greatly reduces cycle times
  • Full look-ahead
  • Up to 1200 ipm cutting feeds
  • Acceleration before interpolation
  • ISO standard G-code programming
  • Higher accuracy
  • Smoother motion
  • Haas reliability

Rotary Tables & Indexers


Gene Haas founded Haas Automation in 1983 to manufacture the world's first fully programmable 5C collet indexer. Today, Haas rotary products continue to dominate the industry with high-quality craftsmanship, dependable operation, and affordable prices. The current Haas line offers more than 35 models of rotary tables and indexers, delivering the superior quality and indexing accuracy that have made Haas the industry benchmark.

Finding your way around

Haas rotary tables and indexers are divided into three main categories. Each category - CNC INDEXERS, CNC ROTARY TABLES, and CNC 5-AXIS ROTARY PRODUCTS - contains information about multiple products, special configurations, and applications.

These three Rotary categories are organized into multiple levels of information. Advancing from this main page, you will find a list of the major products we offer in each category. The page for each individual product then contains information about particular specifications, applications, exceptions and special considerations.

The Haas Way

Every Haas rotary product can be used on both Haas CNC machines and other brands. We accomplish this with our servo control units.

5-Axis Machines


Haas Automation offers a wide range of 5-axis VMCs – one just right to meet the demands of your machine shop.

Many industries today, especially in the high-tech world of aerospace and automotive design, are turning to 5-axis machining as a means to speed manufacturing ability and increase repeatable accuracy. The ability to machine complex shapes, undercuts and difficult angles in a single setup reduces tooling cost and labor time, resulting in a better cost per part, in addition to maintaining parts conformity throughout the part run.

UMC-750: 5-Axis Vertical Machining Center; 30" x 20" x 20" (762 x 508 x 508 mm)

UMC-750SS: Super-Speed 5-Axis Vertical Machining Center; 30" x 20" x 20" (762 x 508 x 508 mm)

The Haas TR Series of trunnion VMCs provide full simultaneous 5-axis motion, or can position a workpiece to almost any angle for 5-side machining. For added flexibility the trunnion is mounted directly to the machine's standard T-slot table, and can easily be removed when jobs require only 3-axis machining. The VF-5TR and VF-6TR are available in both 40-taper and 50-taper configurations.

VF-2TR: 30" x 16" x 20"

VF-5TR: 50" x 26" x 25"

VF-6TR: 64" x 32" x 30"
