RUSSELLVILLE, Ark., Aug. 3, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- On the heels of a recent series of upgrades and added capabilities, Taber Extrusions announces the addition of a new Haas VF-12 CNC Machining line.
"We will continue to invest in technologies that provide the widest scope of services in the aluminum extrusion industry," says Jason Weber, Taber V.P. of Sales and Marketing. "The Haas VF-12 CNC machine is yet another example of our willingness to invest and deliver the widest scope of services across the aluminum extrusion continuum."
With the VF-12/40, the tools have travel lengths of 150 inches of an X-axis, 32 inches of Y, and 30 inches of Z. This means that long aluminum extrusions can be precisely made within the machine, cutting down on processing times and costs. With the internal automatic tool change capacity (30+1), the VF-12 fits the bill for Taber's focus with the Russellville facility providing some of the largest profiles in North America.
The 150 x 28-inch table can be loaded with up to 4000 pounds of base material that will be worked on by a high-power, direct-drive spindle equipped with programmable lubrication and coolant hoses. Everything from tool selection, to RPM, to feed rate and coolant flow can be altered to work on different alloys and acquire perfect aluminum extrusions.
With in-house casting solutions, miniature extrusion manufacturing, friction stir welding capacities, and a full range of hard and soft aluminum alloys, Taber continues to develop its operations to have broadest available capabilities. The VF-12 adds yet another level of capabilities to Taber's portfolio with increased service options for customers in the automotive, defense, transportation, and marine industries, and beyond.
