We are excited to share that we have made a significant investment in a state-of-the-art HAAS VMC 750 machining center. This investment has enabled us to offer full 5-axis plastic milled components to our customers in a shorter lead time, expanding our plastic material milling capabilities and customer benefits significantly.
Improved machining capabilities
Our plastic CNC milling capabilities now include full 3+2 and 5-axis capabilities, with an increased size range of 762mm x 508 x 508 mm XYZ travels. This expansion allows us to offer increased design flexibility and expands our range of milling machines to better support our customers with prototypes and new designs. Our new CAD/CAM system enables us to make fast manufacturing adjustments to model files, decreasing time to production and includes advanced profiling that standard lathes/mills cannot offer.
Take a look at the HAAS VMC 750 in action:
Better machining accuracy and increased turnaround
In addition to improved machining capabilities, the HAAS VMC 750 machining center also offers better machining accuracy and increased turnaround. By running multiple operations side by side, we are able to produce complete parts in each cycle, resulting in fewer setups, increased accuracy, and shorter cycle times. This dynamic work offset capability offers faster setups, and multiple multi-axis parts can be machined in the same setup. The result is a more efficient, streamlined milling process that delivers high-quality fluoropolymer components to customers in less time.
Minimising waste and improving sustainability
Reducing waste is an important consideration for AFT Fluorotec, and we are aware that many businesses today are striving to reduce their carbon footprint and minimise waste. By optimising the milling process and using advanced profiling, the HAAS VMC 750 machining center is able to produce components with minimal scrap, resulting in cost savings for both the company and its customers.
Versatile Milling Solutions across a wide range of Industries
Overall, the investment in the HAAS VMC 750 machining center represents a significant step forward for AFT Fluorotec and our customers. By expanding our milling capabilities and investing in the latest technology, we are able to deliver high-quality, cost-effective milling solutions that meet the unique needs of our customers. Whether you're looking for prototypes, new designs, or larger projects, we have the expertise and equipment to help you achieve your goals.
