Making molds has never been easier than with the Haas VM Series machines. We’ve taken our industry-leading VF Series machines and created custom configurations just for mold making, tool & die work, and other high-precision industries. VM Series machines are also ideal for high-performance job shops looking to increase their versatility.
All Haas spindles are designed and built in-house in our Southern California manufacturing facility. From our standard VM Series 12,000-rpm spindle, to our optional 15,000-rpm spindle, to our 30,000-rpm 30-taper spindle – Haas has the speed you need.
The number of tools you need in your VMC can vary by the job or process being performed. The VM Series machines offer a good selection of tool changer capacities to meet your needs. These tool changers are designed and manufactured in-house by Haas to ensure high quality and long-term reliability. Capacities range from the standard 30+1 side-mount tool changer to the optional 50+1 side-mount tool changer.
Adding a rotary axis to a VMC is the fastest way to boost throughput and increase accuracy. Because Haas began as a rotary table manufacturer, we are able to provide the simplest and most cost-effective entry into 4th- and 5th axis machining available. Additional axes can be added to any VM Series machine in the field, along with Haas rotary tables. Features built into the Haas Control, like G107 Cylindrical Engraving, only make the move to multi-axis machining that much easier.
Setup reduction is critical to maximizing the productivity of any machine tool. With the probing solutions available from Haas, any machine can be set up in minutes, with just a few button pushes. Our industry-leading Wireless Intuitive Probing System (WIPS) sets the standard for integrated probing systems. Easy, on-screen directions guide beginning users through the process, while experienced users have access to the full power and capabilities of custom probe routines, including in-process part inspection.
Chip and coolant management are critical for any machine tool. For that reason, Haas offers multiple methods of dealing with chips and coolant. As machinists ourselves, we know that if you can’t keep chips out of the cutting area and remove them from the machine efficiently, you aren’t using the machine to its full potential. Different jobs require different approaches to chip clearing: flood coolant, through-spindle coolant, through-spindle air, minimum quantity lubrication, and more. Haas machines offer one of the widest selections of chip and coolant management options in the industry.
Ease of use and simplicity are the founding principles of the Haas Control. Designed and built exclusively by Haas since its inception in 1988, the Haas Control is the standard by which all other controls are measured. Commonality between vertical machining centers, horizontal machining centers, and turning centers ensures that operators can easily move from one Haas machine to another. Continued advancement of the Haas Control – with powerful features like 1 GB of program memory, Ethernet connectivity, Dynamic Work Offsets, and HaasConnect remote machine monitoring – allows customers to maximize their investment in a Haas machine.
