Haas Universal Machines are a powerful combination of common components, proven Haas designs, and advanced technology that you can customize to fit your needs.
All Haas spindles are designed and built in-house at our California manufacturing facility. Universal Machines feature the proven inline spindle design from our VF Series – providing maximum torque output, thermal stability, fast acceleration, and proven reliability. Speeds range from 8100-rpm to 15,000-rpm.
All Haas tool changers are designed and manufactured in-house to ensure the utmost quality and long-term reliability. Universal Machines come standard with a versatile side-mount tool changer. In keeping with the Haas commitment to using common components, this is the same high-quality tool changer found on the VF Series for more than 15 years.
After building rotary products for more than 30 years, we combined our extensive knowledge and proven parts to create the Haas Universal Machining Center – a purpose-built, full 5-axis, universal mill. Our Universal Machining Centers can quickly position parts to nearly any angle for 5-sided (3+2) machining, or provide full simultaneous 5-axis motion for contouring and complex machining. Dynamic Work Offsets (DWO) and Tool Center Point Control (TCPC) are software features built into the Haas control that make setting up 4- and 5-axis jobs as easy as setting up a 3-axis machine.
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 power-failure detection, Ethernet connectivity, Dynamic Work Offsets, and HaasConnect remote machine monitoring – allows customers to maximize their investment in a Haas machine.
