This is how Haas makes 5-axis machining affordable

With ever more components requiring the application of 5-axis machining techniques to minimise set-up and cycle times, Haas is able to present a highly cost effective solution that brings 5-axis machining within the reach of shops that perhaps wouldn’t normally have the necessary budget. The combination of a Haas DT-1 drill/tap centre and TRT-100 dual-axis rotary/tilting table can deliver both 3+2 and full 5-axis machining from just €70,180!

Haas DT1

The DT-1 is a compact, high-speed drill and tap machine featuring a generous 508 x 406 x 394 mm work cube yet maintaining a very small footprint. The powerful BT-30 taper spindle spins to 15,000 rpm, and allows rigid tapping to 5000 rpm. The machine provides cutting feed rates to 30.5 m/min for high speed milling, and the machine’s 20+1 side-mount tool changer swaps tools quickly to reduce non-cutting time. Furthermore, high speed 61 m/min rapids combine with high acceleration rates to shorten cycle times and increase throughput.

Adding the Haas TRT-100 dual-axis rotary table to the DT-1 provides high speed, accurate, 3+2 positioning and full 5-axis machining of small, complex parts. Fast indexing speeds ensure short cycle times, while impressive braking capability on both axes guarantees extreme accuracy.

The TRT-100 uses powerful brushless servomotors to provide 47 Nm of spindle torque on the tilt axis and 22 Nm on the rotary axis, with indexing speeds of 1000 deg/sec on both axes. In addition, the unit offers ±120 degrees of tilt and 360 degrees of rotation to position parts to almost any angle for machining.

The precision-ground 100 mm platter features multiple bolt patterns and a precision through-bore for versatile fixturing, and will swing parts up to 213 mm diameter. In terms of platter capacity, the maximum weight is 6.8 kg for 3+2 machining, and 2.25 kg for 5-axis machining.

At just 508 mm wide and less than 330 mm deep, the TRT-100 is the perfect complement for the high speed DT-1 Drill/Tap Centre, and can easily be removed when not needed. Ultimately then, an extremely competent, versatile and affordable 5-axis machining centre is now available to machine shops everywhere.
