Who has a ST-30 or...?
We just ordered two new machines, ST-30SS and a ST-30SSY. I have been in conversation with Haas about their parts catcher. They don't have any detailed specs on this option or pictures of it. They said it changed in the last year from the regular tray to a box shaped tube. So since Haas cannot give me any details of their own product I am asking you guys for some help here. Does anyone run the newer parts catcher? If so could you please send me some pictures and dimensions of it? Also if you could see if a Cat 40 tool holder will slide down it, something like a C40-62EM2 or similar.
Please send pictures or what ever you come up with here
Haas came and field installed the parts catcher on our st-30 last month.
I will get my camera and take some pictures tomorrow.
The box covers the hole in the door, and when you actuate it up, there is a little trap door that your part has to get to the door and fall thru. It did away with the spring loaded mechanism in the door itself that the tray used to push on.
Post some tomorrow.
