Resting on our past success is not in our DNA. With more than 175,000 machines sold to date, you'd think we would take a break – but that's simply not the way we do anything. Since introducing the Haas VF-1 in 1988, we've developed, refined, overhauled, beaten the odds, changed the industry, and proven all of the "they'll never last" critics wrong.
At Haas Automation, it's all about making our CNC machines faster, more reliable, easier to operate, and above all, staying true to our original focus – that what people really want is true value for their investment.
Constant machine design evolution provides special features that increase cutting speeds and decrease downtime, and Haas online offers information and experience to bring it all together.
The Automatic Coolant Refill System is a new option for Haas machines that mounts to the handle of any standard Haas coolant tank. It automatically monitors the machine's coolant usage, and then replenishes the tank with coolant mixed to the correct concentration. The system, when connected to a water supply, blends the coolant concentrate of your choice with water, and automatically dispenses the mixture into the coolant tank. The system saves hours of maintenance, while keeping the machinist at the front of the machine making chips, instead of at the back of the machine making a mess!
Everyone has experienced the delay caused by waiting for coolant mist to clear out of a machine when you open the doors. Nobody wants to breathe that stuff, so the operators wait for the mist cloud to clear, or blow the cloud away using the air gun. What a waste of time! Sure, there are aftermarket systems out there to clear out that mist, but they are expensive, not easily integrated into the machine, and some don't have a filter, let alone one that can be easily cleaned.
Solution: The Haas Enclosure Exhaust System is a low-cost solution that immediately improves productivity by reducing the total machining cycle time. How it works is simple. A powerful, low-vibration fan pulls the coolant mist generated by the cutter out of the enclosure. The coolant-laden mist passes through two reusable wovenmetal filter panels, where the coolant coalesces and is allowed to return to the enclosure, while cleaned air is expelled out the top of the unit. The system integrates with the Haas control, turning on automatically when the spindle starts and off after the spindle stops. An onscreen icon alerts the operator when the filters require cleaning.
Result: Operators experience greatly reduced coolant mist when they open the machine door, and are therefore less likely to pause before leaning into the machine to remove the finished part. The system not only improves overall shop air quality, but also reduces health issues associated with inhalation of coolant mist. Even greater health gains may be realized by venting the Enclosure Exhaust System outside of the shop using standard 10" ducting.
The Haas Wireless Intuitive Probing System (WIPS) guides the operator through the job set-up process with easy-to-use templates. WIPS has the ability to define work offset coordinates, set tool length offsets, and perform in-process inspection within the program.
The Haas Oil Skimmer option removes unwanted surface oil from the coolant tank. The Haas Oil Skimmer is an excellent integrated solution for keeping the coolant tank free of unwanted oils.
After hundreds of hours watching operators use our very popular Servo Bar 300 bar feeders, our engineers went back to the drawing board with the goal of making Haas bar feeder operations even easier and more efficient. The result is the all-new Haas Bar Feeder, which really does provide a more simplified and affordable way to automate part production on Haas turning centers. It features a re-engineered, heavy-duty – yet still compact – design that boosts productivity and streamlines turning operations.
The newly redesigned Haas Mini Mills have improved upon the industry's most popular small footprint VMC. With a focus on improving ease-of-use and enhancing the productivity of the operator, the Mini Mills have received a re-engineered full enclosure, a vastly improved coolant tank, and a better coolant and chip management system. Popular Haas options – such as a faster spindle, enclosure exhaust, and oil skimmer – are now available. For improved visibility and safety, the Mini Mills now feature LED work lights, and high-impact safety glass in the operator door.
