Haas has announced plans for the European launch its UMC 750 universal machining centre at AMB 2012. The move follows the presentation of a prototype of the machine tool at last year's EMO exhibition.

Haas Managing Director Alain Reynvoet said, “The launch of this exciting new Haas product at AMB 2012 will be a major event for us.”

According to the American machine tool builder, the UMC 750 represents a high-performance, versatile CNC machine tool for a fraction of the usual cost associated with machines of similar capability and high quality.

The company said the UMC-750 is a versatile 5-axis universal machining centre with travels of 762 mm x 559 mm x 508 mm that has an integrated dual-axis trunnion table.

The machine comes equipped with an inline direct-drive 40-taper spindle (8000 or 12,000 rpm), and comes standard with a 40+1 tool side-mount tool changer. The trunnion can position parts to nearly any angle for 5-sided (3+2) machining, the company said, noting that it can also provide simultaneous 5-axis motion for contouring and complex machining operations.

The machine also offers 35° and -110° of tilt and 360° of rotation for excellent tool clearance and large part capacity, the company added.

Also on the Haas stand at the show will be a selection of the company's other machine tools. According to the company, they will include a DS30-SSY dual-spindle CNC turning centre with Y-axis, an EC500 CNC horizontal machining centre, and a VM-2 CNC vertical mould making machine.
