As the most compact 50-taper machine ever built by Haas Automation Inc., the VF-3YT/50 vertical machining center offers an increased Y-axis travel and a work envelope measuring 40 in. by 26 in. by 25 in. The Y axis is extended by 6 in. and achieved through a larger base casting, yet the machine retains a footprint only slightly larger than the company’s standard VF-3 model.
The VF-3YT/50 comes standard with a 30-pocket side-mount tool changer and 30-hp, 7,500-rpm geared-head spindle system that delivers as much as 450 ft-lb of torque. Other standard features include an automatic chip auger, programmable coolant nozzle, 15-in. LCD monitor, USB port and the company’s enhanced remote jog handle with color LCD.
