The Haas DS-30SSY turning center performs dual-spindle turning with Y axis, C axis and live tooling for done-in-one machining. Opposed spindles support fully synchronized turning and on-the-fly part pass-off to reduce cycle times. The machine also features high-torque live tooling and servo-driven C axis, and the 4" of Y-axis travel (±2" from the centerline) enables off-center milling, drilling and tapping.
The turning center offers a maximum cutting capacity of 16" × 23" and is equipped with a 24-station hybrid BOT/VDI turret. The A2-5 main spindle features an 8.3" hydraulic chuck and is powered by a 30-hp vector drive system providing 275 foot-pounds of torque. The A2-5 secondary spindle also has an 8.3" hydraulic chuck and is powered by a 20-hp vector drive system providing 110 foot-pounds of cutting torque. Both spindles range to 4,800 rpm and have a 2.0" bar capacity.
The machine provides maximum swing of 31.75" over the front apron with a 20.75" swing over the cross-slide. The turning center is equipped with high-torque live tooling with C axis, rigid tapping, spindle orientation, a 15" color LCD monitor and a USB port. Available options include a belt-type chip conveyor, automatic tool probe, automatic parts catcher, high-pressure coolant systems and more.
