Original Press Release:

Affordable Automation for Small Haas Lathes

Adding a bar feeder to a CNC lathe is one of the fastest and easiest ways to increase production and reduce cost for high-volume parts. The new Haas Bar-100 automatic bar feeder is a low-cost pneumatic bar feed system designed specifically for the Haas Mini Lathe and SL-10 turning centers. The Bar-100 handles stock up to 1" (25.4 mm) diameter, and provides fully automatic loading of single bars up to 6' (1.83 m) long using an air-driven push rod. With the push rod removed, bars up to 12' (3.66 m) long can be loaded for manual feeding using a bar puller (bar puller not included; additional liner components required). The Bar-100 includes a draw tube liner that handles bar stock from 0.125" to 1" (3.2 mm to 25.4 mm) diameter. A convenient tray underneath the feed tube provides storage for multiple bars and has a built-in scale for measuring bar length. A three-point leveling system makes setup fast and easy. A simple control interface allows the operator to program the Bar-100 to run complete bars or produce a fixed number of parts. The Bar-100 operates seamlessly from the lathe's control and runs off the machine's power and air. All cables and software are included when purchased with a new Haas lathe (field installation may require additional hardware and software). Retail priced at just (US) $2,995, the Bar-100 provides cost-effective automation and increased productivity on small Haas lathes.
