The Power of 5


5-axis machining is easier and less expensive than you think, and can dramatically increase your profits.

  • Haas UMC-750

    This versatile 5-axis universal machining center can position parts to nearly any angle for 5-sided (3+2) machining, or provide simultaneous 5-axis motion for contouring and complex machining.
  • Haas VF-2SS + TR160

    Simultaneous 5-axis motion reduces the number of operations, cuts cycle times, and reduces the number of setups to increase accuracy and maintain conformity throughout a part run.
  • Haas UMC-750

    Shops needing a cost-effective 5-axis solution for cutting tough, difficult-to-machine materials around the clock should look no further than the Haas UMC-750.
  • Haas CM-1 + TRT70

    Adding the super compact TRT70 tilting rotary table to the CM-1 creates a high-precision, 5-axis package for machining small, intricate parts.

“We bought the Haas UMC-750s because of the very attractive quality-to-price ratio. We make a lot of complex automotive parts, and needed five-axis machines that weren’t too expensive. The components tend to be big, so we purchased two Haas UMCs – one is running while the other is loading and unloading. They are arranged in a small cell, with one operator to run both.”

DON’T FEAR 5-AXIS EP. 2
In the second video of our “Don’t Fear 5-Axis” series, John Nelson explains how to choose your machine and rotary combination, and discusses which options you should consider adding to make the most of your machine and rotary.
DON’T FEAR 5-AXIS EP. 3
In the third video of our “Don’t Fear 5-Axis” series, John Nelson talks about setting up your rotary table or trunnion, and explains how the Haas DWO/TCPC feature makes 4th- and 5th-axis work simpler than ever.

SIMPLIFY 5-AXIS MACHINING WITH DWO/TCPC


Our powerful DWO/TCPC (Dynamic Work Offsets / Tool Center Point Control) feature lets you create your CAM program ahead of time, and then place the workholding and part anywhere on the table, with no need to repost your program!

“At the start, we wanted a five-axis machine to differentiate ourselves from three main competitors we had identified in the market. But we needed to find a good machine at a good price, and we couldn’t afford to buy a new one. A pre-owned Haas VF-2 with TR160 trunnion proved to be the ideal solution.”
