Haas displays 16 machines
Haas Automation’s prototype through-tool air blast prototype.
Haas Automation, Oxnard, Calif., displayed 16 machines, including:
- UMC-750 universal machining center. The Haas UMC-750 is a 5-axis, 40-taper VMC with 30"×22"×20" travels and an integrated dual-axis trunnion table. The show machine is equipped with a 12,000-rpm, inline, direct-drive spindle and comes standard with a 40+1 tool side-mount toolchanger.
- T-10Y compact Y-axis turning center. The Haas ST-10Y is a small-footprint, Y-axis turning center that provides 4" of Y-axis travel (±2" from the centerline) for off-center milling, drilling and tapping, and comes standard with high-torque live tooling and a servodriven C-axis for 4-axis capability.
- Prototype through-tool Air Blast. The Haas system provides high-pressure and high-flow air through the cutting tool to clear chips during dry machining. Because the system uses the same plumbing as the through-coolant system, the operator can switch between the two systems, based upon their machining requirements.
- Prototype HRC200 high-speed, cam-drive rotary table. The HRC200 is a compact, high-speed rotary table driven by a high-performance roller cam system that provides indexing speeds up to 830°/second. Because the roller drive is preloaded to provide zero backlash, the system yields high stiffness, torque and speed values, while providing low wear characteristics and reducing maintenance, according to the company.
