Computer Numerical Control (CNC) Basics:
The introduction of CNC machine radically changed the manufacturing industry.
The SL-10 takes up only 6.5' x 4.5' of floor space, yet provides a generous 11" turning
diameter, 14" turning length and a 16.25" swing over the front apron. This compact
machine is a valuable addition to any shop needing a “second-op” machine, or wanting
to add a lathe where space is at a premium. It is also the perfect lathe for start-up shops,
or as a first step into CNC turning. The SL-10 comes standard with a 6.5" hydraulic
chuck and a 12-position bolt-on tool turret. A 15-hp (peak) vector drive spindle
provides speeds to 6,000 rpm for high surface feedrates, and an A2-5 spindle nose
accepts bar stock up to 1.75". A host of high-productivity options, such as a tool
presetter, parts catcher, chip auger and tailstock, are available for the SL-10 to further
boost productivity, and the Haas Servo Bar 300 bar feeder may be added for
unattended operation. The Haas control features advanced tool management, single-
button features, 15-inch color LCD monitor and a USB port – and it’s friendly to the
bottom line as well.
CNC machining in practice:In a production
environment, a series of machines may be
combined into one station, commonly called a
"cell", to progressively machine a part requiring
several operations. CNC machine today is
controlled directly from files created by CAM
software packages, so that a part or assembly
can go directly from design to manufacturing
without the need of producing a drafted paper
drawing of the manufactured component.
In a sense, CNC machining represents a special segment of industrial robot systems, as
they are programmable to perform many kinds of machining operations (within their
designed physical limits, like other robotic systems). CNC machines can run over night
and over weekends without machine operator intervention. The ever changing
intelligence of controllers has dramatically increased machine shop cell production.
Some machines might even make 1000 parts on a weekend with no operator, checking
each part with lasers and sensors.
Haas Automation’s complete line of CNC lathes is designed to meet the needs of
modern machine shops, now and long into the future. The SL Series offers a wide range
of capacities, and our space-saving Big Bore option increases capacity further while
retaining the original footprint. The SL-30, with a max turning capacity of 17" x 34"
and a 10" chuck, has a bar capacity of up to 3.0". Haas high-performance turning
centers also feature massive headstock castings with symmetric ribs for rigidity and
thermal stability; on-the-fly wye-delta switching for peak performance throughout the
rpm range; and embedded chip trays and high-volume coolant systems for efficient
chip removal. The Haas control features advanced tool management, single-button
features, 15-inch color LCD monitor and a USB port. Haas has raised CNC turning to
new levels of reliability, ease and productivity.
The Haas VF-4 vertical machining center has 50" x 20" x 25" (1270 x 508 x 635 mm)
xyz travels and is built utilizing all American-made cast-iron components. Like every
Haas machine, the VF-4 represents years of ongoing refinement. Customer feedback
coupled with the relentless pursuit of perfection sees advancements and
design-enhancing changes incorporated directly into the production line every day. The
Haas VF-4 is a rugged, medium-sized VMC that yields full reliability and accuracy in a
moderately-sized machine. The VF-4 has a 40-taper cartridge spindle driven by a 20 hp
vector Dual-Drive (Y-Delta) motor. The VF-4 produces either 75 ft-lb of torque at a low
1400 rpm, or 250 ft-lb at 450 rpm with the optional 2-speed gearbox -- and will also run
up to 7500 rpm in 1.2 seconds for finishing aluminum. The Haas control features
advanced tool management, single-button features, 15-inch color monitor and a USB
port. With a long list of standard features and high-productivity options (many sold in
discounted packages), the Haas VF-4 is one of the best values available today. To find

The Haas VF-6/50 vertical machining center has 64" x 32" x 30" (1626 x 813 x 762 mm)
xyz travels and is built utilizing all American-made cast-iron components. Like every
Haas machine, the VF-6/50 represents years of on-going refinement. Customer feedback
coupled with a relentless pursuit of perfection sees advancements and design enhancing
changes incorporated directly into the production line every day. The Haas VF-6 is a
rugged, medium-sized gear-driven VMC that yields reliability and accuracy in a small
-framed machine. The VF-6/50 has a 50-taper cartridge spindle that's powered by a 30
hp vector Dual-Drive (Y-Delta) motor running through the 2-speed geared head. The
VF-6/50 will produce 450 ft-lb of torque at a low 500 rpm, but will also run up to 7500
rpm in less than 5 seconds for finishing aluminum. The Haas control features advanced
