Many industries today, such as aerospace and automotive design, are turning to 5-axis machining to speed manufacturing processes and increase accuracy. The ability to machine complex shapes, undercuts, and difficult angles in a single setup reduces tooling costs and labor time, resulting in a better cost per part.
Rotary tables are ideal for machining multiple sides of a part in a single setup or for machining many parts on a multiple-sided fixture. But handling very large or very small parts can prove challenging without the correct size rotary. The HRT1000 and HRT100 rotary tables from Haas Automation Inc. cover both ends of the size spectrum, providing…
Haas Automation’s popular DT and DM Series Drill/Tap/Mill Centers have been completely redesigned from the castings up to provide more performance and reliability than ever before, with better chip flow, more visibility into the machines, and easier access to parts and fixturing. And best of all, they’re now less expensive.
Five-axis machining is a powerful tool for reducing setup times and increasing accuracy on complex parts. But investing in a 5-axis machine tool may not be in the budget, especially for smaller shops. The all-new TRT160 tilting rotary table from Haas Automation not only puts 5-axis capabilities well within reach of the average job shop, but its…
Haas Automation expands its line of affordable, 5-axis universal machining centers with the UMC-1000SS, a larger-travel, super-speed UMC that offers high performance and speed for 5-sided (3+2) machining and simultaneous 5-axis machining.
Whether you're starting a new engineering program or upgrading an existing one, the Haas Mini Mill is the ideal learning tool. Now available in a school edition, this machine is bundled with educator and student tools that provide real-world machine shop experience within the classroom.
The CL-1 from Haas Automation Inc. is an ultracompact CNC chucker lathe that comes standard with an 8-station automatic turret, making it ideal for producing small, precision parts, such as those found in the communications, aerospace, medical and dental industries.
Small parts manufacturing can pose significant machining challenges for the average job shop. Tiny holes, minute features, extreme accuracies and fine surface finishes may prove difficult for larger CNC machines. Haas Automation’s new CM-1 compact mill is a small-footprint, high-accuracy solution for the production and prototyping of small, high-…
Haas Automation’s Next Generation Control (NGC) is the latest evolution of a user-friendly CNC. It reportedly features a significantly improved user interface, more consistent and intuitive navigation and vastly improved connectivity.
Five-axis machining is a powerful tool for reducing setup time and increasing accuracy for complex parts. But investing in a 5-axis machine tool can be prohibitively expensive, especially for smaller shops. The new TR200Y dual-axis trunnion rotary table from Haas Automation puts 5-axis capabilities well within reach of the average job shop, and…
The TRT70 dual-axis rotary table from Haas Automation delivers high-speed and accurate positioning for 3+2 and full 5-axis machining of small, complex parts – like those found in the medical, dental, and jewelry industries. The unit’s ultracompact size and light weight reportedly make the TRT70 the perfect dual-axis solution for even the smallest…
The new UMC-750P from Haas Automation Inc. is the latest addition to the company’s lineup of 5-axis universal machining centers. The P designation stands for profiling and porting, and that’s exactly what this machine is designed to do.
Haas Automation recently expanded its drill, tap and mill product line with a pair of high-speed, lean-style machining centers—the DT-2 and DM-2—that reportedly provide the same high acceleration rates, fast axis speeds and short tool change times as their smaller brethren. Yet, the new machines offer an additional 8" (203mm) of X-axis travel…
The DT-1 Drill/Tap center from Haas Automation Inc., is now available with a 20,000-rpm inline direct-drive spindle, giving customers the ability to run higher feed rates for small tools and high-speed machining operations.
When Haas Automation introduced the Servo Bar 300 bar feeder in 1999, it was instantly popular, because it was compact, easy to use, and affordable. For 2015, Haas engineers went back to the drawing board to reportedly make bar feeder operations easier, more efficient and faster. The result is the all-new Haas Bar Feeder, which provides a simpler…
Adding a 4th-axis rotary table to a machining center is a proven way to boost productivity, reduce setups, and increase accuracy on multi-op parts. Adding a fast rotary table to a fast machine creates a high-speed package that slashes cycles times even further. The HRC210 from Haas Automation is a high-speed, cam-driven rotary table that provides…
As the aerospace, automotive and mold and die industries trend toward monolithic components and large structures, there is a growing need for large-travel machining centers. To accommodate large-volume machining, Haas Automation Inc. has expanded the capacity of its EC-1600 horizontal machining center with an additional 10" of Y-axis travel.

Haas Automation Inc. redesigned its VF vertical machining center product line to incorporate a wide range of enhancements.
Standing in front of a ma-chining center, waiting for the drilling cycle to end so you can squirt some tapping compound into the holes is a big waste of time. But with challenging materials, such as Hastelloy or Inconel, it’s the only way to avoid a broken tap. Or is it?
