Haas and Delcam to Host 5-axis Machining Seminars

Haas Automation and CADCAM developer Delcam are to host two seminars to promote a better understanding of 5-axis machining at the Haas Leicester Technical Centre on 19th and 20th February. The seminars, which will be tailored to the aerospace industry on the 19th and the motorsport industry on the 20th, will feature presentations and machining demonstrations on the Haas range of 5 axis machines, and Delcam’s PowerMILL multi-axis software, and will also include a presentation on tooling for 5-axis applications from Sandvik.

Until recently, 5-axis machining has been associated only with large manufacturers in the aerospace and automotive industries. However, recent developments have made 5-axis machining a realistic option for smaller toolmakers and other subcontractors. This technology now represents a cost-effective opportunity for all such companies to increase productivity, improve quality and reduce delivery times.

Haas Automation’s dual-axis trunnion tables have been designed for multi-axis, continuous profiling of complex component shapes. The unit easily mounts onto the Haas range of machining centres and connects to the machine’s controller with 4th and 5th axis drive options.

Adding this retro-fittable device to a 3-axis machine brings the once exclusive high-end domain of 5-axis machining within reach of most parts manufacturers, for considerably less than the cost of a dedicated 5-axis machine, and is easily dismountable when the machine is required as a standard 3-axis vertical machining centre. Alternatively, the company has the VF-TR and VR ranges of specialist 5-axis machines for dedicated operations.

The seminars will allow attendees to find out more about the benefits offered by 5-axis machining and its potential applications in their manufacturing operations. They will be of value both to those already using 5-axis methods and to those looking to invest in this technology.
