UMC-1000SS 5-Axis Universal Machining Center

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.

The UMC-1000SS is a 5-axis, 40-taper universal machining center with 40" x 25" x 25" (1016 x 635 x 635 mm) travels, 1200 ipm (30.5 m/min) rapids, and an integrated high-speed, dual-axis trunnion table. The machine is equipped with a 12,000-rpm inline direct-drive spindle, a high-speed 30+1 tool side-mount toolchanger and Haas Automation’s high-speed machining software.

The UMC-1000SS’s high-speed trunnion offers 170 deg/sec feed rates to quickly position parts for 5-side (3+2) machining, or provide simultaneous 5-axis motion for contouring and complex machining. The trunnion provides +120 and -35 degrees of tilt and 360 degrees of rotation for excellent tool clearance and large part capacity, and the 25" (635 mm) platter has standard T-slots and a precision pilot bore for fixturing versatility. To simplify job set up, the UMC-1000SS features Dynamic Work Offsets and Tool Center Point Control, and comes standard with Haas Automation’s Wireless Intuitive Probing System.

The machine’s 12,000-rpm inline direct-drive spindle is powered by a 30-hp (22.4 kW) vector drive system that yields 90 ft-lb (122 Nm) of cutting torque. A 15,000-rpm spindle is also available, in either standard 40-taper or dual-contact HSK-A 63 taper.

For high-volume production, high-mix/low-volume machining and unattended operation, the UMC-1000SS is available with an optional 8-station pallet pool. A wide selection of high-productivity options is also available, including a 50+1 tool side-mount toolchanger, a belt-type chip conveyor and through-spindle coolant.

Related Glossary Terms

  • centers


    Cone-shaped pins that support a workpiece by one or two ends during machining. The centers fit into holes drilled in the workpiece ends. Centers that turn with the workpiece are called “live” centers; those that do not are called “dead” centers.

  • clearance


    Space provided behind a tool’s land or relief to prevent rubbing and subsequent premature deterioration of the tool. See land; relief.

  • coolant


    Fluid that reduces temperature buildup at the tool/workpiece interface during machining. Normally takes the form of a liquid such as soluble or chemical mixtures (semisynthetic, synthetic) but can be pressurized air or other gas. Because of water’s ability to absorb great quantities of heat, it is widely used as a coolant and vehicle for various cutting compounds, with the water-to-compound ratio varying with the machining task. See cutting fluid; semisynthetic cutting fluid; soluble-oil cutting fluid; synthetic cutting fluid.

  • feed


    Rate of change of position of the tool as a whole, relative to the workpiece while cutting.

  • inches per minute ( ipm)

    inches per minute ( ipm)

    Value that refers to how far the workpiece or cutter advances linearly in 1 minute, defined as: ipm = ipt 5 number of effective teeth 5 rpm. Also known as the table feed or machine feed.

  • machining center

    machining center

    CNC machine tool capable of drilling, reaming, tapping, milling and boring. Normally comes with an automatic toolchanger. See automatic toolchanger.

  • toolchanger


    Carriage or drum attached to a machining center that holds tools until needed; when a tool is needed, the toolchanger inserts the tool into the machine spindle. See automatic toolchanger.
