Haas Automation, Inc. (Oxnard, CA) has added the VF-6SS—a high-performance vertical machining center designed for high-volume production, and other work where high speed and short cycle times are important—to its line of VMCs. It comes standard with an innovative 12,000-rpm inline direct-drive spindle, ultra-fast tool changer and high-speed rapids. Based on the Haas VF-6 platform (64" x 32" x 30" travels), the machine is equipped with a 12,000-rpm, 40-taper spindle that uses a unique inline, direct-drive system to couple the motor directly to the spindle. This system yields less vibration, heat and noise than other drive systems, providing better surface finishes, extreme thermal stability and very quiet operation. The spindle’s 30-hp vector dual-drive system provides plenty of low-end torque, as well as the speed necessary for high-speed machining operations. On-the-fly wye-delta switching provides a wide constant-horsepower band. Additional features include a high speed, 24-pocket side-mount tool changer that swaps tools in 1.6 seconds.
