AlphaTech, Inc. located in Fletcher, NC is scheduled to take possession of two new Haas DM-2 High Speed Machining Centers by the end of April 2017. The DM-2 is Haas’ latest release of high speed machines offering a spindle speed of 15,000 rpm, quick rapids of 61 m/min and a lightning-quick tool changer. Beyond the speed features, the machine boasts other notable features such as through-spindle coolant, power-failure detection, 4th axis capability and a Renishaw probe system making setup times five times faster and handling in-process inspections within the part program.
The acquisition of the Haas DM-2 machines will enable AlphaTech to expand its current capacity as a contract manufacturer. These machines were purchased to meet the production demands of some existing customers. Lead times will also be reduced and customers can expect an uptick in on-time delivery.
Joe Worley, Operations Manager at AlphaTech states, “In order to truly appreciate the speeds of the machines, you need to see them run.” One can do so on the Haas YouTube channel:
