Investing in a CNC machine tool shouldn’t require nerves of steel. But, for owners of small to medium sized machine shops with a need for high-productivity 5-axis machining, that’s exactly what used to be the case. High purchase cost and complexity were usually enough to put-off those with anything less than cast-iron composure. Until now!
Haas Automation introduces the Haas UMC-750 Universal Machining Centre, for 3+2 and simultaneous 5-axis machining. Flexible, 5-axis machining offers reduced set-up times and increased accuracy for multi-sided and complex parts. The new Haas UMC offers all of these at an affordable price and with Haas Automation simplicity and peace-of-mind as standard.
The Haas UMC-750 offers travels of 762mm x 508mm x 508mm and an integrated dual-axis trunnion table. The machine is equipped with an inline direct-drive, low-heat 40-taper spindle (8100 standard, or optional 12,000 rpm), and comes standard with a 40+1 tool side-mount tool changer. The trunnion can position parts to nearly any angle for 5-sided (3+2) machining, or provide simultaneous 5-axis motion for contouring and complex machining. The machine provides +35 and -110 degrees of tilt and 360 degrees of rotation for excellent tool clearance and large part capacity.
“The UMC has been designed and built based on what our users have told us they need in a universal machine,” says Haas Automation Europe Managing Director, Mr. Alain Reynvoet. “In a nutshell, it is a high-performance CNC machine tool for a fraction of the usual cost associated with machines of such significant capability and high quality. Our customers have come to expect innovative, low-cost machining solutions that do not compromise on performance and reliability. They won’t be disappointed with this latest machine tool from Haas.”
A wide selection of high-productivity options is available for the UMC-750, including a belt-type chip conveyor, high-pressure through-spindle coolant systems, high-speed machining control software, the Haas Wireless Intuitive Probing System, expanded program memory, and much more.
