HAAS VM-2 Vertical milling machine HAAS VM-2 Vertical milling machine

HAAS VM-2 is a 3-axis vertical machining center, or more precisely a vertical mold-making mill.

Technical characteristics:

Travels on X-Axis 762 mm
Travels on Y-Axis 508 mm
Travels on Z-Axis 508 mm
Spindle Nose to Table (~ max) 610 mm
Spindle Nose to Table (~ min) 102 mm

HAAS ST20SSY – CNC Lathe (Y-Axis & Live Tooling)

Just like ST10Y, the ST20SSY Y-Axis & Live Tooling lathe is also in the group of machines which are optimized for the production of small to medium series of parts.

Technical characteristics:

Maximum cutting length521mm
Maximum cutting radius254mm
Chuck size210mm
Bar capacity51mm
Number of turret slots24

ST20SSY has several elements which ST10Y doesn’t:

Part catcher (catches the part after parting off operation is finished)
High-pressure coolant (69bar/1000PSI) – enables further cooling of the cutting zone, making more aggressive cutting regimes possible, shortening the production cycle periods.
24 turret slots

However, ST20SSY does not come with a pressure regulator, while ST10Y does. This could cause a problem when it is necessary to integrate this machine to an already existing system, so you need to keep in mind that the pressure regulator is necessary.

ST20SSY

In it’s name, “SS-Super speed” stands for higher speed of rapids (auxiliary machine movement), making the machine faster and more productive.

In the end, it is worth mentioning that there is a difference in power between ST10Y and ST20SSY machines equaling almost 16KW.

HAAS ST10Y – CNC Lathe (Y-Axis & Live Tooling)

HAAS ST10Y, 3.5 axis CNC Y-Axis & Live Tooling lathe, is classified in a group of machines from the last generation of this type. These machines are intended for production of small to medium series of parts.

Technical characteristics:

Maximum cutting length 356mm
Maximum cutting radius 286mm
Chuck size 165mm
Bar capacity 44mm
Number of turret slots 12
Live tool speed 6.000 RPM
Main spindle speed 6.000 RPM

ST10Y Y-Axis & Live Tooling lathe is designed so it’s control is done without direct influence of the operator.

Instead, the machine enables the use of computer generated optimal tool trajectories which achieves higher precision of the machined parts.

The ST10Y Y-Axis & Live Tooling lathe can perform milling operations as well.

It also supports the use of Live Tooling which greatly increases the array of parts which can be machined on it.
