Those who watch the worldwide machine tool market, and manufacturers with cost and production headaches, have recognized the need for a dependable, low-cost production machining center. The TM-1P Toolroom Mill from Haas Automation, Inc., combines the best of both worlds: It's easy on the wallet, and has the power and flexibility of full CNC. This model is based on the shop-proven Haas TM-1, but has many standard features that make it well suited for the production environment. It comes "out of the box" with faster speeds, an automatic tool changer and a full enclosure.
Sensible design and utility are characteristics of all Haas Toolroom Mills. The TM-1P's reliable 7.5-hp vector drive spindle spins to 6,000 rpm and uses standard 40-taper tools. Rapids and cutting feedrates are 400 ipm, double that of the non-enclosed TM-1. The machine's 30" x 12" x 16" travels and a 57.75" x 14.5" T-slot table provide plenty of room for workholding and larger parts, and a 10-pocket tool changer is standard. The TM-1P operates on either single- or three-phase power, and a one-piece cast-iron base/column damps vibration and provides rigidity - ensuring a high level of precision and repeatability.
One of the most-appreciated features of the TM-1P is the famous Haas control. Its easy-to-read color display and logical keyboard layout make it a pleasure to use. The Haas Intuitive Programming System makes it one of the most user-friendly controls in the industry, and you don't have to understand G-code to make parts.
A number of high-productivity options are available for the TM-1P, including an auger-style chip conveyor, high-flow coolant system, 4th- and 5th-axis drives, rigid tapping and much more.
The rugged TM-1P incorporates the smart design and high quality that have made Haas the largest machine tool manufacturer in North America. Built in the USA by Haas, the TM-1P is backed by the worldwide network of Haas Factory Outlets - the most extensive system of support and service in the industry.
