Hystat Systems Ltd invests in another Haas

. Hystat invests in Haas

Hystat Systems Ltd have placed an order for another Haas horizontal machining centre at MACH 2012. The Huddersfield based company have added an Haas ES-5 HMC to their stable of CNC machines. Hystat already had a Haas EC-1600 HMC and have been thrilled with both the machine's perfomance and the levels of service and support from Haas. The new machine is due to further expansion of the company. Dave Robins, company director, believes that continued investment and development is key to their success.

Hystat Systems Ltd was established in Huddersfield in 1976 to service the market in heavy duty hydraulic cylinders.

Up until 1982 manufacture was carried out on a sub contract basis until the company moved to its current site at Spa Fields Industrial Estate, Slaithwaite, Huddersfield. The original site housed only one building but the site was large enough to accommodate the company’s growth and expansion over the following years. The premises today have been extended three times and are over four times larger than the original building.

In 1986 the company purchased the intellectual property and some machinery from the receivers of Spenborough Engineering Ltd, a company in a similar field.

Spenborough Engineering were a long established manufacturer of Hydraulic Cylinders, supplying many industries, particularly crane manufacturers. The information is still retained by HYSTAT who are able to supply spares or replacements for equipment supplied by Spenborough.

In 1992 the drawings and commercial records of Cattermole Hydraulics Ltd, a hydraulics company including Weston Hydraulics, were purchased from the receiver. Cattermole Hydraulics and Weston Hydraulics were very well recognised manufacturers of Hydraulic Cylinders, supplying the steel and heavy Industries. HYSTAT acquired the rights for all drawings, technical knowledge, sales records and right to use the name. HYSTAT are, therefore in a position to supply spares, replacements or technical information for the Cattermole range of equipment.

In 2004 the HYSTAT group acquired a local sub contract company, Bank Bottom Engineering Services. This engineering company has been operating from its site in Honley since 1952. It consists of a modern machine shop with state of the art machinery, including horizontal and vertical machining centres and multi-axis turning centres.

In 2010 Hystat procured the assets of Titan Manufacturing, a Hydraulic Cylinder manufacturer based in Halifax. The acquisition included all sales records, engineering drawings and technical information relating to products produced by Titan and associated companies.

The recent investment in the Haas ES-5 horizontal machining centre is due to further expansion of the company.

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.”
