Job Shop in Sweden Installs Haas’s 150,000th Machine

The 150,000th Haas CNC machine, a DS-30SSY, is handed over to its new owners,
Claesson Engineering. 

 

Haas Automation announced that it produced and installed its 150,000th machine tool earlier this year. The machine marking this milestone, a DS-30SSY turning center, was purchased by Claesson Engineering in Lindbovägen, Sweden, and placed in service this March.

Commenting on this special occasion, Alain Reynvoet, managing director of Haas Automation Europe, noted that the machine was bought by a European company–in the relatively high-cost region of Scandinavia. He cited this as evidence that machines from this builder represent a “combination of value, performance, reliability and support” that is right for any market.

The DS-30SSY is a dual-spindle turning center equipped with a Y axis, a C axis and live tooling, designed to create a “done-in-one” machining solution. The opposed spindles support synchronized turning and enable on-the-fly part pass-off to reduce cycle times. The machine provides 4 inches of Y-axis travel (±2 inches from the centerline) for off-center milling, drilling and tapping. It is equipped with high-torque live tooling and a servo-driven C axis for four-axis capability.

Seven years ago, Haas Automation noted the installation of its 75,000th CNC machine—a VF-3SS purchased by a family-owned machining business in Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany.
