Haas at EMO Hannover 2013

Visitors to the 720-square-meter Haas booth at EMO 2013 will witness cutting demonstrations on sixteen of the company’s latest model CNC machine tools, including: high-speed vertical machining centres; 50-taper, high-powered machines designed to take big cuts; high-productivity turning centres with live tooling and dual spindles; powerful, small-footprint drill-tap and toolroom machines; specialist vertical machining centres for toolmakers; and, of course, the Haas UMC-750 universal machining centre, which was launched in Europe at EMO 2011.

“Haas Automation has always thrived when trading conditions are difficult” – says Haas Europe Managing Director, Mr Alain Reynvoet, “and 2013 is already turning out to be one such year, with a 24% increase in first-quarter sales, compared to 2012, much of which is due to sales of recently introduced products.”

“Our machines are designed to offer lower cost of ownership, high productivity and outstanding reliability, meaning companies can invest with confidence knowing they can make parts quickly, efficiently and, most importantly, for a profit.”

The Haas UMC-750 universal machining centre: Flexible, 5-axis machining offers reduced set-up times and increased accuracy for multi-sided and complex parts. The Haas UMC offers all of these at an affordable price, and with Haas Automation simplicity and peace-of-mind as standard.

The UMC-750 offers travels of 762 x 508 x 508 mm and an integrated dual-axis trunnion table. The machine is equipped with an inline direct-drive, low-heat 40-taper spindle (8100 rpm 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 +110 and -35 degrees of tilt and 360 degrees of rotation for excellent tool clearance and large part capacity. Special features: Tool centre point control and Dynamic Work Offsets.

The Haas DS-30SSY CNC turning centre: The DS-30 series of Y-axis turning centres combine dual-spindle turning with Y axis, C axis, and live tooling to create powerful ‘done-in-one’ machining solutions. The opposed spindles support fully synchronized turning and allow on-the-fly part pass-off to reduce cycle times. The machines provide 102 mm of Y-axis travel (±51 mm from the centerline) for off-centre milling, drilling, and tapping, and come standard with high-torque live tooling and a servo-driven C axis for versatile 4-axis capability. The machines are available in standard and Super Speed configurations. Special features: 4800-rpm dual spindles and 24-station hybrid BOT/VDI turret.

The Haas ST-10Y turning centre: The ST-10Y CNC lathe is an economical solution for small parts turning with reduced handling, in a compact package loaded with full-size features, including live tooling with C axis.

The Haas ST-10Y turning centre was designed from the ground up to be extremely rigid, highly accurate, and very thermally stable. All castings were optimised using finite element analysis (FEA) to produce the most rigid designs, while improving chip and coolant flow, and simplifying maintenance and service. The spindle head features a compact, symmetrical design for thermal stability and rigidity, and the 45-degree wedge design greatly increases the tool-mounting envelope and improves chip flow.

The ST-10Y is equipped with a 12-station VDI turret that indexes tools quickly to reduce cycle times. The machine provides a maximum cutting capacity of 229 x 356 mm, and boasts 102 mm of Y-axis travel (±51 mm from the centerline) for off-centre milling, drilling, and tapping. It comes standard with high-torque live tooling and a servo-driven C axis for versatile 4-axis capability. Special feature: 6000-rpm high-speed spindle.

Also on display will be at least nine different Haas CNC rotary tables and indexers, including . . .

The new, cam-driven HRC210 CNC rotary table: The HRC210 is a high-speed, cam-driven rotary table that provides cutting and indexing speeds up to 830°/second. It provides 149 Nm of spindle torque for synchronous 4-axis machining, and has a pneumatic brake that yields 182 Nm of holding torque for stationary work. Indexing accuracy is ±30 arc-sec, with repeatability of 4 arc-sec.

The 210 mm platter of the HRC210 has a center height of 152.40 mm, with a 50.8 mm x 48.5 mm deep pilot bore and 45 mm through hole. Six radial T-slots simplify fixture and workpiece mounting.
