Related Suppliers

Shops requiring the cutting capabilities of a 50-taper machine in a small footprint can consider Haas Automation’s VF-3YT/50 VMC with extended Y-axis travel. The VMC features a work envelope with dimensions of 40" × 26" × 25" and a 54" × 25" table. Cast-iron construction provides the rigidity and stability necessary for heavy cutting, the company says, and the wide T-slot table accommodates fixturing and large parts.


The VMC is equipped with a 30-pocket side-mount tool changer and a 30-hp, 7,500-rpm, geared-head spindle system that delivers as much as 450 foot-pounds of torque. Standard features also include an automatic chip auger, a programmable coolant nozzle, a 15" color LCD monitor with a USB port, a remote jog handle and the company’s Visual Quick Code programming system.


Optional features include a 10,000-rpm spindle, 1,000-psi through-spindle coolant and high speed machining software with full look-ahead. Other options include an automatic air gun, automatic doors, a hard disk with Ethernet interface and more. The VMC can cut stainless steel, cast iron and hard alloys.
