Hass says its TM-3P toolroom mill addresses the needs of manufacturers that have limited financial resources but need the power and flexibility of a full CNC machine. The machine is based on the company’s TM-3, but is equipped with features that make it useful for production environments. Equipped with a 10-pocket ATC and a full enclosure, the machine has faster speeds than its predecessor, the company says.
The 7.5-hp vector-drive spindle can reach speeds of 6,000 rpm and uses standard 40-taper tools. Rapid traverse rates are 400 ipm. In addition, the machine’s 40" × 20" × 16" axis travels and 57.75" × 14.5" T-slot table can accommodate large parts. The mill operates on either single- or three-phase power, and its one-piece, cast iron structure is said to damp vibration and provide rigidity, precision and repeatability.
Equipped with the company’s Intuitive Programming System software, the machine’s control features a color display and keyboard layout designed for ease of use. In addition, knowledge of G code is not required to make parts. Available options include an auger-style chip conveyor; a 20-pocket ATC; a high-flow coolant system; fourth and fifth axis drives; rigid tapping; and more.
