The new DT-1 from Haas Automation, Inc., is a compact, high-speed drill and tap machine with full milling capabilities. The machine features a generouse 20″ x 16″ x 15.5″ work cube and 26″ x 15″ T-slot table, while maintaining a very small footprint. A powerful BT-30 taper spindle spins to 15,000 rpm, and allows tapping at speeds to 5000 rpm. The spindle is coupled directly to the motor for smooth, quiet operation and extreme thermal stability. A 15-hp vector drive system provides 46 ft-lb of continuous torque for milling and boring operations.
The DT-1 is equipped with a frighteningly fast high-speed, 20-pocket, servo-driven tool changer that swaps tools in 0.8 seconds. High-speed 2400 ipm rapids combine with 1G acceleration rates to shorten cycle times and reduce non-cutting time. The maximum cutting feedrate is 1200 ipm.
For efficient chip removal, the DT-1 features steeply sloped internal sheet metal. Optional twin chip augers transport chips to the rear of the machine for discharge. A 48-gallon flood coolant system is standard, with options for a programmable coolant nozzle and high-pressure through-tool coolant systems.
