Live cutting

Visitors to the 200 sq m stand of Haas (hall 19, stand 570), will be able to see cutting demonstrations on eight CNC machine tools, including: high-speed vertical machining centres; five-axis high-speed machines; mid-sized verticals designed to take big cuts; high-productivity turning centres with live tooling and Y-axis capability; small-footprint mini-mill and tool-room machines; and, making
its UK debut, the Modular Mini Mill.

With a capacity of 406 x 305 x 254 mm and a standard 10-tool ATC, the Modular Mini-Mill houses 40-taper performance into a footprint of 2 sq m. Optional modules can be added for extra flexibility. For example, the coolant module is designed to prolong tool life, aid swarf clearance and achieve better finishes. The production module features a faster spindle and increased rapids. In addition, the high-productivity software module adds macros, spindle orientation, Wi-Fi, rigid tapping, visual programming, co-ordinate rotation and scaling, while the four-axis module runs a rotary table
or indexer.
