Regarded by Haas Automation, Inc. as its most compact 50-taper machine to date, the VF-3YT/50 features a 40" × 26" × 25" work envelope and a 54" × 25" table, an increase of 6" compared to the VF-3.
The extended Y-axis travel is achieved through a larger base casting, yet the machine retains a footprint only slightly larger than the standard VF-3. A cast-iron construction provides the rigidity and stability necessary for heavy cutting, says the company. In addition, the T-slot table provides the room necessary for fixturing and accommodating large parts.
Also standard is a 30-pocket side-mount toolchanger, as well as a 30-hp, 7,500-rpm geared-head spindle system that provides as much as 450 foot-pounds of torque.
