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