Haas VM-3 The Mould Maker's Vertical
Designed specifically for mould makers, the VM-3 is a high-performance machine featuring a generous 1016 x 660 x 635 mm work cube, a 1372 x 635 mm table, a 12,000-rpm spindle powered by a 30-hp vector dual drive system, and a high-speed control with full look-ahead.
The 40-taper spindle uses a unique inline, direct-drive system that couples the drive directly to the spindle rather than using belts (which are a major source of heat). The result is less vibration, less heat and less noise – which means excellent surface finishes, extreme thermal stability and quiet operation.
The VM-3’s 1372 x 635 mm cast-iron table features standard T-slots (13 in the Y direction and 6 in the X) as well as an array of drilled and tapped holes. It has a maximum weight capacity of 1800 kg.
The VM-3 comes standard with a 24+1 side-mount tool changer that swaps tools in 2.8 seconds. Also standard are an automatic chip auger system, programmable coolant nozzle, remote jog handle, automatic air gun, high-speed machining software with look-ahead, hard drive with Ethernet interface, USB port, Visual Quick Code programming, user-definable macros, coordinate rotation & scaling, spindle orientation and power failure detection module. Available options include linear scales, Visual Quick Code probing and expanded program memory.

“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.”
