Designed for performance and speed in both five-sided and simultaneous five-axis machining, Haas Automation’s UMC-1000SS features a

 40-taper inline, direct-drive spindle with speed ranging to 12,000 rpm; XYZ-axis travels measuring 40" × 25" × 25" (1016 × 635 × 635 mm); a 1,200-ipm (30.5-m/min) feed rate; an integrated, dual-axis trunnion table; and a 30+1 tool side-mount toolchanger.

The trunnion offers a 170-degree/sec. feed rate for five-sided machining or simultaneous five-axis contouring. The trunnion provides +110 and -35 degrees of tilt and 360 degrees of rotation for tool clearance and large-part capacity. The 25" (635-mm) platter has T-slots and a precision pilot bore for fixturing versatility. To simplify job set up, the company’s control offers Dynamic Work Offsets, Tool Center Point Control and the Wireless Intuitive Probing system.

The machine’s spindle is powered by a 30-hp (22.4-kW) vector drive system that yields 90 foot-pounds (122 Nm) of cutting torque. The inline system couples the spindle directly to the motor to reduce heat, increase power transmission and improve surface finish. A 15,000-rpm spindle is also available in either 40-taper or dual-contact HSK A63 taper.

For high-volume production, high-mix/low-volume machining, and unattended operation, the machine is available with an 8-station pallet pool. A 50+1 tool side-mount toolchanger, a belt-type chip conveyor, a high-pressure through-spindle coolant system and an expanded program memory are also available as options.
