Haas VF-12 Vertical Machining Centre
With aerospace manufacturing trending toward monolithic airframe components and large composite structures, there is a growing need for large-travel machining centres. The VF-12 vertical machining center easily accommodates the large-volume machining found in the aerospace, automotive and mould and die industries.
The VF-12/40 features travels of 3810 x 813 x 762 mm (xyz) and has a 3810 x 711 mm T-slot table. Standard equipment includes a side-mount tool changer, chip auger system, programmable coolant nozzle, rigid tapping, 95-gallon flood coolant system, 15" colour LCD monitor with USB port and much more.
The VF-12/40 is equipped with a 30 hp vector drive spindle that spins to 8,100 rpm and provides 75 ft-lb of torque. A 24+1 tool side-mount tool changer is standard, with a 40+1 tool side-mount optional. A 10,000 rpm spindle is available for high-speed work, and a two-speed geared-head spindle that yields 250 ft-lb of torque is available in both 8,100 rpm and 10,000 rpm configurations.
The VF-12/40's massive cast-iron construction, triangulated wide-stance castings and heavy-duty outriggers prevent flex and damp vibration to provide high accuracy and consistent repeatability. Linear (glass) scales are available as an option for extremely precise positioning. Other high-productivity options include high-pressure through-spindle coolant, 4th- and 5th-axis drives, high-speed machining software, a wireless intuitive probing system and much more.

“The Haas service is great. They always have the spares we need in stock, don’t charge the earth for them, and as long as we call their service department before 4:30pm they’ll get the parts to us first thing next morning. If we need a service engineer to visit they’ll be here the same day or within 24hrs. I fully recommend Haas.”
“We’re able to call the applications department for advice and they’ve always managed to provide us with the solutions we need, whether over the telephone or in person. Haas have given us some CNC control simulators, so our students can test their programming skills without the danger of crashing one of our real Haas machines. The training that Haas offers has proved invaluable both to students and staff.”

“In all cases, every possible part that could be required is shipped in for the Engineer. Any parts not required are collected the next day & are never installed unless absolutely required. This honest philosophy, together with realistically priced spare parts ans highly competent staff make the upkeep of even our older machines viable. I look forward to many more years dealing with Haas.”
