BroncoRossi: from which manufacturer is the second tool?
Darlene Miller: CET Train in as little as 6 months!
Cory Capps: +Haas Automation, Inc.
5-Axis is Sexy, so very sexy; granted this is not a super crazy part- still
lovely to watch.
First Look: The Haas UMC-750
smacman68: Hey, you've earned it. I have been there over a year, and there are very
few machines I have not put a wrench on, but the Haas machining centers are
one of them. We have two large milling jobs that I have only done PM to. I
haven't had a downtime ticket yet. That is rare, and worth calling out!
Berhane Gebriel: The best machine.
russtuff: @ChainBreakerHQ2 Uh, for fun of course! Plus, it's way awesomer than my
Jeff Reilly: I am sure it is very nice. getting a high quality 3 or 4 axis can be a much
better move from a productivity standpoint.
JASCOBAR: I am going to be a student at MCC-Business & Technology in Kansas City at
I-435 & Front Street. All CNC is HAAS. Is there any simulators online to
learn your system and programming? They use at this time MasterCAM x7.....I
think. Can I learn on your systems on a online simulator how to use &
understand nested commands and such.
DerCNCler: nice machine...
Haas Automation, Inc.: Thank you for the compliment motel29. There are no specific 3+2 or 5-axis
features built into the Haas Intuitive Programming System (IPS), our
conversational programming system that makes set up and operation easy. In
fact, because of this we do not offer IPS on the UMC. Continued >>>
fade621: Fricken beeechin !!!!
Haas Automation, Inc.: You are correct Hombre oso cerdo, we do not have a video showing the 5-axis
capabilities nor does our distributor Hi-Tec have a UMC anywhere in Mexico.
We will have a UMC at TECMA 2013 in Mexico City, March 5-8. In the
meantime, you can send me your information and I will have someone contact
you. Or, you can contact someone from the Haas distributor: (01) 5565-9008.
TacticalKeychains: I was really happy to get a Tormach, then I watch this... haha :)
Haas Automation, Inc.: Hi thebjgj2. The UMC-750 is a full 5-Axis machine. Thanks for the question.
Jeff Reilly: The biggest mistake that moldmakers can make is to think that adding 5 axis
increases capablity. Adding a high accuracy 3 axis machine will increase
throuput in a moldshop far more than a 5 axis machine that does not have
the volumetric accuracy to cut molds to negative stock models without
handwork. Blow Molds are a little different than Plastic injection but be
careful in thinking that 5 axis alone will upgrade your abilities for
making molds. This adds two more axis of compounded error.
Jester Mclarpet: Good video - Nice machine & Excellent fixturing.
Dave Stone: The machine does not seem bad! But for a machine in 2013, it seems to me a
little too slow. The x and y rapids are okay (Although the rapids of the SS
machines would be appropriate here) but the rotary axes must be faster in
the long term! And what is with a HSK-A63 or a HSK-A50 spindle?? But still,
the machine is quite okay!
capnthepeafarmer: Dear Santa,
Haas Automation, Inc.: Hi Jason. You can do the circular and square pockets in the control of the
UMC-750. The Haas Intuitive Programming System (IPS) makes eccentric
pockets easier to create – user friendly is what defines the Haas control.
Thanks for the question. If you would like, send me your info and I will
have someone from your local distributor contact you to talk about your
needs and the UMC. You can send me your info here: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks again Jason.
Andrew Ydna DuBuc: Is the dynamic work offset software available on other machines besides for
the UMC series? It would be great to have on a vertical mill with a regular
ktmktmman: This machine is a lot like our DMG DMU 50. I wonder how the control handles
the rotations. I have been around haas mills with a trunnion table and you
need a new offset every time you rotate it. Does it have something
equivalent to a siemens cycle800 call? Basically it knows the machine
kinematics and wherever you swivle the tabe the control knows exactaly
where the 0, 0 has moved to.
Haas Automation, Inc.: Hi ktmktmman, thank you for the question and comment. The new Haas UMC-750
has new software features called Dynamic Work Offset (DWO) and Tool Center
Point Control (TCPC). G234 Tool Center Point Control (TCPC) is a software
feature in the Haas CNC control that allows a machine to properly run a
contouring 4- or 5-axis program when the workpiece is not located in the
exact location in which the program was created in a CAM system.
Haas Automation, Inc.: G254 Dynamic Work Offset (DWO) is very similar to TCPC, except that it is
designed for use with 3+1 or 3+2 positioning, not for simultaneous 4- or
5-axis machining. If the program does not make use of the B- and C-axes,
there is no need to use DWO. Find more information on online at HaasCNC.com

Haas Automation, Inc.: Thanks for the great compliment smacman68!
MrOneGoodFellow: Can the table spin fast enough to work as a CNC lathe?
meocats: nice showcase, excellent light-duty machine
Miguel Angel Ramirez: is true that the design of this machine is an old design patent expired on
Haas Automation, Inc.: Hello TheDIMONART. Thank you for the inquiry, but unfortunately we only
sell complete machining centers and not components. Sorry. All the best on
your DIY CNC machine.
thebjgj2: Is it full 5 or just positioning?
jpetrov0: I don't suppose there's any possibility of getting one of these donated to
my college, is there?
CNCsBest: Hi haasautomation, Is this machine more affordable than a DMG of similar
capacity and options? You guys did a great job by the way.
kristianvkt: what about full 5-axis simultaneous machining. will u upload video
AtienzaLouie: I want one! Just have to figure out how.....
Haas Automation, Inc.: Absolutely not Migel. The UMC is completely of our own design and based on
the idea of a universal machining center (which is common among many CNC
machine manufacturers). Thanks for the question Miguel.
Jason Purvis: Wonder what the software is like, is it user friendly, like circle pocket
cycles, square pockets, etc. Can you program excentric parts standing at
the machine. I run a fanuc robo drill. We might be getting one of these
Jon Polliard: It is refreshing to see an efficient program used for demonstration
purposes. So many machine builders try to show off their machines with very
in-efficient programs that make their machine look bad. Kudos to Haas
Haas Automation, Inc.: >>> Continued Tools can be set using standard tool setting sequence, but
with the Haas Wireless Intuitive Probing System (WIPS) standard it is best
to use the tool setter on the machine for setting tool offsets. The on
screen templates help you through tis process. Refer to any of the WIPS
videos for details on this. Tools are set the same on the UMC as any other
Haas mill. Thanks again motel29, hope this helps. Please let us know if you
need anything else.
TheDIMONART: Dear Haas, is it possible to buy control panel and power electronics? Do
you sell kits for cnc DIY hobby, like servomotor controllers?
smacman68: I work in a very busy job shop. We have close to 100 CNC machines. Okuma,
Fuji, Hyundai, Mazak and Haas. We have perhaps 18 Haas machines. 12 lathes
and the rest milling centers. In my shop, the operators are very hard on
machines. Wrecks are spectacular. I judge a machine on how easily us
maintenance guys can repair it and return it to service. They are all good
machines in there own way, but the Haas's are the easiest to repair and get
back to making chips. Which makes us money.
Bigman031893: Tormach Is a basement machine. Not bad for working at home or in a small
shop, but not even in the same universe as this guy here.
Haas Automation, Inc.: Hello and thank you for the question ydna2. 254 Dynamic Work Offset (DWO)
will be added to future machines in the coming year. Thanks again.
Haas Automation, Inc.: Thank you so much for the kind words Aaron. We hope your students enjoy the
video. Please let us know if there is every anything we can do for you!
Haas Automation, Inc.: Hi kristianvkt. We are working on a few other things right now, but if we
upload a full 5-axis video you will be the first to know (since you
subscribe to the Haas channel). Thanks for the interest and the question.
Have a happy holidays and great New Year.
Haas Automation, Inc.: A Tormach? There is always next time for a Haas TacticalKeychains. Thanks
for the comment and have a great week.
ronnyh411: i got tears in my eyes
Haas Automation, Inc.: Hi CNCsBest. The UMC-750 will be less expensive than a DMG of similar
capacity. Thanks for the question and the comment. Have a great day.
russtuff: Very impressive. When I grow up, this is what I'm going to get.
Haas Automation, Inc.: Hello JASCOBAR. I just sent you a direct message here on YouTube. Please
let us know if there is anything else we can do.
Haas Automation, Inc.: Haas does a lot of entrustments to schools (from high schools to 4-year
universities to technical training centers). Just depends on the school’s
needs and whether Haas can help. The UMC would be a HUGE gift, but you
never know. Thanks for the question jpetrov0.
motel29: Advanced and very productive machine. As usual, Haas is continuing to lead
the way in innovation. 2 part question: What are key differences for the
operator on the conversational side? And ( please forgive my lack of
knowledge), In what sequence are tools touched off? Thx.
