Haas Lathes Deliver Small Footprint, Large Workpiece Capacities
July 24, 2008— The GT Series of lathes from Haas Automation are capable of high power and a range of speeds at affordable prices. Both models, the GT-10 and GT-20, occupy minimal floor space and offer short cycle times as a result of 710 ipm rapids and a high-speed cross slide.
The GT-10 has a maximum capacity of 10" x 8", part swings of 16.25" over the front apron and 12.75" over the cross slide. A vector drive spindle operates at 7.5 hp, providing high torque and a wide, constant power band. One optional feature is a pneumatic chucking system with a 5", three-jaw chuck, rotating union and drawtube.
The GT-20 model has a maximum capacity of 11" x 12", part swings of 13" over the front apron and 9.25" over the cross slide. The vector drive spindle runs at 20 hp. A high-productivity hydraulic chucking system with an 8.3" three-jaw chuck, rotating union and drawtube are optional with this model. The GT Series’ base configurations allow speeds up to 3,000 rpm, but with the respective optional systems, speed is increased to 4,000 rpm.
Haas offers high productivity options for the GT Series that include the Haas Intuitive Programming System, two-position, quick-change tool posts for 0.75" tools, a high-volume coolant system, user-definable macros and program memory space for 16 MB, according to the company’s press release.
