Office-space Machining

Is space kind of tight around your shop floor? If so, the new OM Series Office Mills from Haas Automation Inc. (Oxnard, CA) may be just what you?re looking for. They?re small enough to fit through a 36-inch doorway, and they?re light enough for you to move them around with a pallet jack or equipment dolly. As a matter of fact, they?re small and light enough to fit into most freight elevators, and with an optional caster kit, you can just roll them from one location to another.

The OM-1 has an 8-by-8-by-8-inch work envelope. Its big brother, the OM-2, has a work envelope of 12 by 10 by 12 inches, providing more capacity, but in the same footprint. Both feature a 20-by-10-inch T-slot table and come equipped with a 50,000-rpm brushless micro-motor spindle that accepts tools up to 1⁄4-inch shank size. For higher-production work and added flexibility, OM-1A and OM-2A models are available, which feature an ISO 20-taper spindle (30,000 rpm) and 20-pocket automatic tool changer designed and built by Haas. All the models run on single-phase power (240V AC).

Maximum cutting feeds for all OM models are 500 ipm, with rapids up to 757 ipm for faster cycling. The company?s control is engineered to simplify setup and operation. Standard equipment includes a 15-inch color LCD monitor with USB porting,

1 MB of program memory, a coolant system, automatic ?lubrication, and high-speed machining software with full look-ahead. A number of high-productivity options are also available.

For full fourth- or fifth-axis operation, Haas has designed a pair of ultracompact rotary tables that easily fit into the work envelope of its Office Mills. And, if your ?office shop? needs turning capabilities, it offers its equally compact OL-1 Office Lathe, which features a 5-hp, 6000-rpm spindle. Its 5C threaded spindle accepts a number of optional chucks, it?s equipped with a pneumatic collet closer, and its high-speed cross slide has travels of 12 by 8 inches and accepts a variety of gang-style tooling.?CK
