Haas Drilling, milling, tapping
Machine Tools – Haas will be exhibiting its compact DM-1 high-speed machining centre.
According to the company, it is identical in construction and specifications to the DT-1, but with the substitution of a Haas 40-taper inline direct-drive spindle, and an 18+1 side-mount tool changer. Its high acceleration rates, fast rapids, and short tool-change times make the DM-1 an attractive high-productivity machining centre, Haas says.
It adds that for some shops, investing in 30-taper tooling for the DT-1 is not a desirable solution. The DM-1 is said to allow shops to make use of their existing 40-taper tooling with the benefits of the larger spindle. Multiple machines can be placed side-by-side.
