Haas HRT-160SS Super Speed Rotary TableHaas CNC machine tools, CNC mills and CNC lathes

Adding a 4th-axis rotary table to a machining centre is a proven way to boost productivity, reduce setups, and increase accuracy on multi-op parts. Adding a fast rotary table to a fast machine creates a high-speed package that slashes cycles times even further.

The new HRT160SS super-speed rotary table from Haas Automation provides indexing speeds up to 570°/second to take advantage of the increased speeds and feeds of today's high-speed machining centres. To gain the highest possible performance from the HRT160SS without sacrificing reliability or longevity, Haas engineers optimised oil patterns to reduce drag, modified the brake system for fasterresponse, and increased accel/decel rates to cut cycle times.

Designed to complement the high-performance Haas DT-1 Drill/Tap Centre, the HRT160SS ismore than four times faster than the standard HRT160 rotary table. With itscompact size, the HRT160SS easily fits into the work envelope of the DT-1, aswell as other compact machining centres.

The HRT160SS is driven by a high-torque brushless servomotor that provides 150 ft-lb (203 Nm) of spindle torque for synchronous 4-axis machining, and it has a pneumatic brake that yields 100 ft-lb (136 Nm) of holding torque for stationary work.Indexing accuracy is ±15 arc-sec, with repeatability of 10 arc-sec.

The 6.3″ (160 mm) platter of the HRT160SS has a centre height of 5″ (127 mm), and a 1.5″ (38 mm) diameter through-hole. Six radial T-slots simplify fixture and workpiece mounting, and both manual and pneumatic tailstocks are available for additional workpiece support.

• Greater power and torque
• Faster acceleration/deceleration
• Superior reliability

Coldon Engineering Limited
“The Haas service is great. They always have the spares we need in stock, don’t charge the earth for them, and as long as we call their service department before 4:30pm they’ll get the parts to us first thing next morning. If we need a service engineer to visit they’ll be here the same day or within 24hrs. I fully recommend Haas.”    

Greenwich University
“The service that the University has received from Haas has been exemplary, from the initial decision making stage, through the sales and ordering process, installation and after sales support. 

“We’re able to call the applications department for advice and they’ve always managed to provide us with the solutions we need, whether over the telephone or in person. Haas have given us some CNC control simulators, so our students can test their programming skills without the danger of crashing one of our real Haas machines. The training that Haas offers has proved invaluable both to students and staff.”    

BBR Engineering Limited
“The service we’ve had from Haas has been excellent. Our VF-3 vertical developed a problem, which we reported at 11 o’clock that morning. By 2 o’clock we’d confirmed with the Haas service department that we needed a new spindle and that a technician would be with us the next day. He arrived at 8 o’clock the next morning, with a new spindle, which was fitted and aligned that day. The machine has been faultless ever since.”    

Titan Motorsport Limited
“I’m a big fan of Haas and currently have over 20 of their CNC machines. We’ve got a service contract, so our machines are frequently serviced and are very reliable. If we ever have a problem, the Haas service engineers are with us within 24hrs. For example, the other day, one of our machines was showing a low oil pressure warning. The service engineer arrived early the next day and fitted a new pump.”    

Woodbridge Engineering Limited
“We’ve always had great service and support from Haas. To give an example; one of our operators knocked the spindle on our SL-30 lathe out of alignment. The Haas service engineer was here the following day, with all the parts he needed and fixed the machine.”    

Headline Filters Limited
“Over the years I’ve always been very pleased with the consistently high level of service we get from Haas. On the occasions when our older machines develop a fault, a simple telephone call to Haas reception is all that’s required to get in touch with the Service Department & then to an Engineer. The Engineers are excellent at diagnosing faults & in many cases the problem can be dealt with over the phone in order to keep our production going.

“In all cases, every possible part that could be required is shipped in for the Engineer. Any parts not required are collected the next day & are never installed unless absolutely required. This honest philosophy, together with realistically priced spare parts ans highly competent staff make the upkeep of even our older machines viable. I look forward to many more years dealing with Haas.”
