Haas CNC Machines now have Increased Spindle Power by 50 Percent

Haas CNC Machines now have Increased Spindle Power by 50 Percent

Added to MTDCNC by HAAS Automation on 18 September 2012

For 2012, Haas Automation has increased the speed and performance of the standard spindle on its expansive line of 40-taper VMCs, and introduced several new optional spindles.

All Haas VF-1 through VF-12 40-taper VMCs are now equipped with a powerful 8,100-rpm inline direct-drive spindle that is driven by a 30-horsepower vector drive system. The Haas inline system couples the spindle directly to the motor to reduce heat, increase power transmission, and provide excellent surface finishes. An optional 10,000-rpm inline direct-drive spindle is available for shops wanting higher spindle speeds. Both spindles yield 90 ft-lb of cutting torque.

For shops needing additional low-speed torque and wanting the flexibility of a gearbox, two optional gear-drive spindles are also available for standard Haas 40-taper VMCs. The optional spindles provide either 8,100-rpm or 10,000-rpm, and feature a Haas-built, high-precision two-speed gearbox. Both geared spindles yield 250 ft-lb of torque.

The World's biggest CNC machine tool manufacturer, Haas Automation, designs and builds a full range of metal-cutting machine tools including CNC machining centres, lathes and rotary tables.

Haas machine tools and rotary products are built to deliver higher accuracy, repeatability and durability than any other machine tools on the market.

Haas expects to install more than 14,000 machines this year.
