Haas Bar Feeder V2

Haas ST-30Y


We have a couple of new machines at our shop! We are excited to announce we have received the Haas Bar Feeder V2 and Haas ST-30Y. These will help us increase productivity allows us to make many more additional types of machined parts much faster. Both are top-of-the-line tools to add to our repertoire.


About the Haas ST-30Y

Haas ST-30Y

The DS-30Y Y-axis turning center combines dual-spindle turning with Y axis, C axis, and live tooling to create a powerful “done-in-one” machining solution. Off-center milling, drilling, and tapping operations are possible for increased machining capabilities. It comes standard with a 12-station BMT65 turret and synchronized C axis for versatile 4-axis capability. 


The opposed spindles support fully synchronized turning and allow on-the-fly part pass-off to reduce cycle times. The DS-30Y has a medium footprint, yet provides a generous work envelope. The compact footprint and redesigned sheet metal of the new design yield a shorter distance between the door and center of the chuck for better ergonomics. The reduced reach to the chuck makes it easier for machine operators to manually load and unload parts. It also allows for faster automated (robot) part loading and unloading. 


The Haas Visual Programming System uses graphical templates and a form-like interface to help you quickly create G-code programs for not only basic part features, but also more complex operations, like Y-axis milling/drilling, probing, and more. We are able to program it to your exact specifications.


Haas has increased the angle of the wedge from 45 degrees to 55 degrees, which improves the overall chip flow inside the work envelope. 



New castings – Increased rigidity and dampening properties

Improved ergonomics for everyday operation

Improved chip evacuation

Increased Z-axis travel

Increased wedge stance for heavy-duty performance

WiFi standard

HaasDrop wireless file transfer standard

Safe Run standard

HaasConnect remote monitoring standard


We love it because:

Dual-spindle design for done-in-one operations

Y-axis milling, drilling, and tapping

Ideal for high-volume, high-production environments

Made in the USA


About the Haas Bar Feeder V2

haas bar feeder

The Haas Bar Feeder is a simple and affordable way to automate part production on Haas turning centers to boost productivity. It is designed and built exclusively for use on Haas turning centers and connects directly to the Haas control. An innovative rollaway design provides easy access to the rear of the lathe spindle for quick liner adapter and spindle liner changes.


Fast setup and quick changeovers are what set the Haas Bar Feeder apart from the competition. The rollaway design lets us swap out the patented Haas extruded spindle liners in minutes, and the quick-change pushrods snap in place without tools. Bar height adjustments are fast and easy using a single handwheel, and our belt-driven bar-shuttle system provides lightning-fast retract speeds to reduce cycle times.



Rollaway design provides easy access for quick liner changes

High push-rod 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 for both pushrod diameters, 3/8″ (9.5 mm) and 3/4″ (20 mm)

Easily accessible storage for all extruded liners


We love it because:

All-inclusive design, with plug-and-play capabilities to a Haas lathe

Interfaces directly with the Haas control

Includes patented Haas spindle liners

Made in the USA
