Omega Buys a Haas VF2-SS Increasing Efficiency in the Shop
Omega purchased a new Haas VF2-SS vertical machining center. It has a 15,000 RPM spindle, high speed rapids on all axes, and high speed feed rates, for more efficient machining of materials that are optimally machined at high surface feeds and speeds, like aluminum and plastics. It has a 4th axis so we can access multiple sides, reducing the number of set ups. This means that we can make your parts quicker and less expensively.

Mazak Quick Turn Smart 100s CNC turning center
Omega has recently purchased a Mazak Quick Turn Smart 100s CNC turning center. This machine will increase the quality and throughput of our CNC turning department. The Mazak Quick Turn Smart 100s has a 6″ chuck capable of spinning up to 6000 rpm. It can machine parts up to 11″ in diameter x 12.15” in length. This state of the art new machine’s true beauty is the ability to machine small and medium sized parts easily and efficiently. The Quick Turn Smart 100s has a highly rigid integrated spindle/motor design which can consistently achieve turning tolerances of .0005”. We program on the machine with the Mazatrol conversational programming language which shaves off time typically needed to program new parts. The Tool Eye automatically measures and compensates for all tools before use which again saves time. Omega is excited to use this advanced machine to make better parts faster.
