The WES investment program continues with installation of the impressive HAAS UMC750 5 axis machining centre.

The Haas UMC-750 is a versatile 5-axis universal machining centre with 762 x 508 x 508 mm travels and an integrated dual-axis trunnion table. The machine is equipped with an inline direct-drive 40-taper spindle (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, or provide simultaneous 5-axis motion for contouring and complex machining. The machine provides +110 and -35 degrees of tilt and 360 degrees of rotation for excellent tool clearance and large part capacity.

"The UMC750 is a real game changer for us, we have invested heavily in machine tools recently and adding the 5 axis mill will open up a number of machining opportunities" commented WES Operations Manager, Daniel Hutchings. "Supported by Edgecam programming software we are now able to combine several operations into one machining sequence which will save time and cost when machining some of the products we make every day."
