The Abbey Group has invested in a new Haas ST-20 Turning Centre. It is the latest Haas high-performance turning centre – designed to provide heavy cutting ability, extreme rigidity and high thermal stability. It has a maximum cutting capacity of 15″ x 20.5″ (381 x 521 mm), with maximum swings of 31.75″ (806 mm) over the front apron and 20.75″ (527 mm) over the cross slide.
The standard 20 hp (14.9 kW) spindle yields 140 ft-lb (190 Nm) of torque at 2000 rpm, and spins to 4000 rpm. The A2-6 spindle nose is equipped with a 8.3″ (210 mm) hydraulic 3-jaw chuck, and a 12-station bolt-on style tool turret is standard.
High productivity options for the ST-20 include a belt-type chip conveyor, hydraulic tailstock, automatic tool probe, live tooling with C axis, automatic parts catcher, high-pressure coolant systems and much more
