Delaware Metals, in Newport, DE, has added several new machine tools to keep up with additional demand in it’s services, including CNC Machining, Metal Fabrication, Prototype Development and Assemblies. Recently we added a Haas VF-5SS Super-Speed Vertical Machining Center ; 50″ x 26″ x 25″ (1270 x 660 x 635 mm), 40 taper, 30-hp (22.4 kW) vector drive, 12,000 rpm, inline direct-drive and high-speed 40+1 side-mount tool changer.
This machine is equipped with a 12,000-rpm, 40-taper spindle that features a unique inline, direct-drive system that couples the drive directly to the spindle rather than using belts. This results in smoother transmission of power, less heat and less noise than other drive systems, providing better surface finishes, extreme thermal stability and very quiet operation.
We are continuing to update our shop to better service our customers in the Aerospace, Automotive, Medical Device, Pharmaceutical and other Industries. We are continuing to partner with new customers with this added capacity in our shop.
