5-Axis Machining Centres For Everyone

What Do You Want to Create Today?

5-axis machining is an effective means to reduce setups and increase accuracy for multi-sided and complex parts. The shorter travels and compact footprints of the Haas UMC-500SS make it perfect for 5-axis machining of smaller parts.

The UMC-500SS has a faster spindle, high-speed tool changer, together with high-speed trunnion table. This combination reduces cycle times as well as boosts productivity.

  • 5-axis simultaneous machining
  • Powerful inline direct-drive spindle
  • High-speed trunnion table
  • Large capacity side-mount tool changer
  • Includes Wireless Intuitive Probing System
  • Made in the USA

5-Axis Made Easy – Parts 1, 2 and 3

1: Senior applications engineer John Nelson explains why 5-axis machining is much simpler than it has ever been before, furthermore why any shop can be a 3+2 or 5-axis shop.

2: John explains how to make the correct choice when choosing your machine and rotary combination.

3: He talks about setting up your rotary table or trunnion, as well as explaining how the Dynamic Work Offsets and Tool Centre Point Control makes multi-axis work more straightforward than ever.

16-Station Pallet Pool for UMC-500 5-Axis Universal Machining Centre

High-volume production, unattended operation

Our 16-station pallet pool for the UMC-500 and UMC-500SS 5-Axis Universal Machining Centre is perfect for high-volume production runs. In addition, the pallets can be scheduled individually according to priority and sequencing requirements. In other words allowing high-priority parts to be machined first or staged more often. Another key point is that completed pallets are returned automatically to the holding location or sequenced to a protected operator station specifically for immediate unloading and re-loading.

NOTE: The Pallet Pool must be anchored for proper operation.

  • Fully integrated solution for lights-out production
  • 16+1 pallets (16 storage locations + 1 machining station)
  • Includes 50+1 Side-Mount Tool Changer
  • Includes CNC Control Cabinet Cooler
  • 200 lb max payload per pallet (workpiece + workholding)
  • 8″ dia. x 16.5″ tall work envelope
  • Easy-to-use scheduling interface in the Haas control
  • Dedicated load/unload station
  • Must be ordered with the machine


UMC Auto Parts Loader for 5-Axis Universal Machining Centre

Automate Your Part Production on Small UMCs

The Haas Automatic Parts Loader is a simple and affordable way to automate part production. What’s more, it is designed and built exclusively for the Haas UMC-500 and UMC-500SS. And for simplicity, it connects directly to the Haas control.

  • All-inclusive design, with plug-and-play capabilities to Haas small vertical machining centres
  • Interfaces directly with the Haas control
  • Accommodates parts up to 6″ length x 6″ width x 10 lb
  • Includes light curtain for safe operation
  • Made in the USA


UMC-500SS and Pallet Pool In Action

The compact footprint of the Haas UMC-500 makes it ideal for smaller 5-axis parts. The UMC-500SS has a faster spindle coupled with a high-speed tool changer. Additionally, a high-speed trunnion table reduces cycle times and boosts productivity. Add our 16-Station Pallet Pool, and you’ll be taking your production to the next level. Running “lights out” has become a reality.

Haas VF-2SS & HRC210 Demo

This demo was designed to show off the higher spindle speed and rapids of the VF-2SS and the quickness of the HRC210. 

You can also see in-process probing for part location and feature inspection using the Haas WIPS system.

VF-4 and TR200Y - Cutting Demo

Watch as our VF-4 mill joins forces with our TR200Y 5-Axis trunnion rotary table to put features on 5 sides of this block.

How We Build VMCs Today

Back in the late 1980s we started building our first VMC, the VF-1. 

Today, our process is finely tuned and extremely efficient for a machine that is still hand built to a great extent. Take a look at how we build the same VF that may be sitting on your shop floor not too long from now.
