For holding medium to large parts or fixtures, the HRT Series of T-slotted rotary tables from Haas Automation, Inc. (Oxnard, CA) is the answer. These rugged, heavy duty tables can be mounted vertically or horizontally for added versatility. Chucks and fixtures can easily be bolted to the table using the six precision T-slots, and large through-holes allow for bar feeding and special fixture-locating requirements. They require a Haas mill with 4th-axis drive and software version 18.00 or later for full 4th-axis operation, or a rotary control box for stand-alone operation. They can add four-axis capabilities to your machine, provide easy plug-and-play connection to Haas equipment to enhance machining performance and capabilities, and they are made in the U.S.
