Designed specifically for mold makers, the Haas VM Series are high-performance machines featuring a generous work cubes and tables, and a 12,000-rpm spindle powered by a 30-hp vector dual drive system. These mills are equipped with a high-speed control with full look-ahead, and the 40-taper spindle uses a unique inline, direct-drive system that couples the motor directly to the spindle rather than using belts (which are a major source of heat). The result is less vibration, less heat and less noise - which means excellent surface finishes, extreme thermal stability and quiet operation.
