Center for 5-sided, 5-axis machiningSeptember, 03 2012
Five-axis machining is seeing growing use today as a means to reduce setups and increase accuracy for multi-sided and complex parts. The new UMC-750 universal machining centre from Haas Automation, Inc., is a cost-effective solution for 5-sided (3 + 2) and simultaneous 5-axis machining.
It is a versatile 5-axis 40-taper vertical machining centre with 30 x 22 x 20 in. travels and an integrated dual-axis trunnion table. The machine is equipped with an 8100-rpm inline direct-drive spindle, and comes standard with a 40+1 tool side-mount tool changer. Visit Haas at booth S-8119, where 15 machines will be on show over 10,000 square feet of space.
