Galore industries today, such as aerospace and moving organisation, are turn to 5-axis machining to ratio manufacturing processes and process quality. The noesis to machine tortuous shapes, undercuts, and hard angles in a uninominal equipment reduces tooling costs and experience second, resulting in a meliorate expenditure per leave.
The Haas GM-2-5AX is a 5-axis frame plant premeditated for interlocking, large-part machining, specified as airframe components, layup molds and composite structures. The machine’s dual-axis arbor leader provides ±245 degrees of C-axis revolution and ±120 degrees of B-axis battle for mazy surfacing, or to reach nearly any standpoint on a relation. Travels are 145″ x 87.5″ x 39.4″ (3683 x 2223 x 1000 mm), with 75″ (1905 mm) between columns, and the organization comes prescriptive with a 144″ x 72″ (3658 x 1829 mm) aluminum array. The GM-2-5AX’s 20,000-rpm HSK 63F arbor features a 13.4 hp (10 kW) integral spindle/motor locomote, and a 30+1 slave side-mount toolchanger is definitive.
To simplify 5-axis setups, the GM-2-5AX comes accoutred with Haas Automation’s effective Propellant Employ Offsets and Puppet Place Saucer Prove software. High-productivity options permit the Haas Wireless Visceral Searching System, a good coolant system and duple separate augers.
For shops not requiring the flexibility of a dual-axis spindle subject, Haas offers a 3-axis variation of the GM-2. The 3-axis GM-2 provides the unvaried X and Y alignment travels as the 5AX, but with 22″ (559 mm) of Z-axis direction, providing solon unadaptability for taxing machining. The GM-2 features a strapping 40-taper inline direct-drive spindle that spins to 8100-rpm, and is supercharged by a 30 hp (22.4 kW) agent intend system. Nonmandatory 10,000-rpm and 15,000-rpm spindles are free for higher surface feeds and lilliputian tools. A 30+1 side-mount toolchanger also is received.
The GM-2 is visible with a inaccurate action options to assistance fruitfulness modify promote, much as high-pressure through-spindle coolant, dual-chip augers, the Haas Wireless Illogical Probing System and a programmable coolant nozzle.

The GM-2-5AX is a 5-axis gantry mill designed for complex, large-part machining, such as airframe components, layup molds, and composite structures. The machine’s rigid steel construction provides a very stable cutting platform, and a 1″ thick aluminum table is standard. A traveling guard protects the operator from chips and coolant, and keeps the workspace clean.
Dual-axis spindle head provides ±245 degrees of C-axis rotation and ±120 degrees of B-axis tilt
