At IMTS, Haas Automation, Inc. (Oxnard, CA) will display more than 40 machines at its booth—all cutting chips and making parts. Among the featured machines is the large-frame VM-6—a high-performance VMC that provides the accuracy, rigidity and thermal stability required for high-precision work. It has 64" x 32" x 30" travels, a 12,000-rpm spindle driven by a 30-hp vector dual-drive system, a 24-pocket side-mount tool changer and a high-speed control with full look-ahead capability. To meet the needs of shops requiring the heavy-duty cutting capability of a 50-taper machine in a small footprint, the VF-3YT/50 vertical machining center with extended Y-axis travel is the most compact 50-taper machine ever built by the company. It features a 40" x 26" x 25" work envelope—an increase of 4" over the standard Haas VF-3—and a 52" x 23" table. The extended Y-axis travel is achieved through a larger base casting, yet the new machine retains a footprint only slightly larger than the standard VF-3. Heavy cast-iron construction provides the rigidity and stability necessary for heavy cutting, and the wide T-slot table provides plenty of room for fixturing and large parts. Also on display are the GT-10 lathe, the TM-1P toolroom mill for production machining, the SL-20L long-bed turning center and the HHLV-1 hybrid precision toolroom lathe.
