Convert Your 3-Axis Mill to a 5-Axis Workhorse
The new TR160, TR210 and TR310 dual-axis trunnion rotary tables from Haas Automation add 5-axis capabilities to a 3-axis mill. These simple bolt-on solutions for machining complex parts can turn almost any 3-axis mill into a 5-axis workhorse – and at a fraction of the cost of a 5-axis machining center.

Available in three sizes (160 mm, 210 mm and 310 mm platters) to fit almost any work envelope, the trunnions bolt directly to the table of a 3-axis VMC to provide 5-axis motion or position parts to nearly any angle for multi-sided machining.

All three trunnion tables are driven by powerful brushless servo motors on both axes, and provide ±120° of tilt on the A-axis and a full 360° of rotation on the B-axis. Each features a precision-ground platter of heat-treated 4140 alloy steel, with six standard T-slots (0.625") equally spaced at 60º for easy fixturing. Three servo control configurations are available to interface to almost any machine.
