HaasTEC returned to India on 19th
November when the Haas Factory Outlet (HFO) Phillipscorp, CNCSSIPL staged an event at the complex of Vatva Industries Association in Ahmedabad, Gujarat state. Around 2500 visitors from 1000 regional companies attended, drawn to see a range of innovative, affordable Haas CNC machine tools on display. What’s more, over 500 engineering students paid a visit to the event to gain an insight into the latest machining technologies. The HaasTEC was inaugurated by chief guest, Sushil Luhar, the Managing Director of Ambica Engtech Pvt Ltd.
Making its debut appearance at the show was the UMC-750 five-axis universal machining centre. All Haas CNC machine tools at the event were under power and cutting metal. In addition, Haas specialists from the HFO were on hand to guide visitors through the demonstrations and answer questions about the machines.
The UMC-750 five-axis vertical machining centre, which drew a great deal of interest at the HaasTec, offers a generous capacity of 762 x 508 x 508 mm in the X, Y and Z-axis respectively. It features a two-axis, 630 x 500 mm integrated trunnion rotary table with +110 and -35 degrees of tilt and 360 degrees of rotation to provide excellent tool clearance and large part capacity up to 300 kg. Also featured is a 40+1 side mount tool changer and a 40-taper, 22.4 kW, 12000 rpm direct drive spindle.
The popular and immensely useful WIPS-R wireless intuitive probing system featuring a Renishaw TS27R table touch probe for tool offsets and a Renishaw OMP40 spindle probe for work offsets together with an easy to use Haas software interface, is also standard on the UMC-750.
The HaasTEC event also featured a number of the company’s industrial partners, all offering complementary technologies and advice. Among their number was metrology specialist, Renishaw, which described the HaasTEC as a “well organised event that gave us the opportunity to make very good contacts and offer our assistance in solving particular manufacturing challenges”. Representatives from cutting tool companies Sandvik Coromant and Kyocera agreed: “The customer turnout was very good,” said a Sandvik spokesman, while Kyocera declared it was already “looking forward to the next HaasTEC”.
“The HaasTEC show in Ahmedabad was a resounding success with excellent customer attendance and keen interest in the latest Haas products and technology,” says Terrence Miranda, Managing Director, HAAS Factory Outlet Mumbai. “I am so pleased that we welcomed over 2500 visitors to the event, which once again proves that the HaasTEC format is an effective means of reaching and communicating with customers on a regional level.”
