Atlas Technologies Increases Machining Capacity

They install a new Haas VF-12 Series VMC to meet increasing production and quality demands.

Atlas Technologies, Inc. (Fenton, MI) announced their installation of a large frame VF-12 Series vertical machining center from Haas Automation, Inc. (Oxnard, CA) in their Fenton facility to accommodate large volume machining required to service their various customer markets. This machine tool is a beneficial addition to the 51,000 sq ft of in-house manufacturing space that currently provides custom welding and fabrication alongside contract manufacturing services. The large frame VMC features a 150 in x 28 in T-slot table with 50 taper configurations and spindle speeds up to 10,000 rpm. The machine’s capabilities will streamline the manufacturing process to meet increasing production demands.

Metal fabrication is a precision process that requires industry knowledge and expertise, both of which Atlas has provided for the last 50 years. This VMC will provide a higher quality of metal fabrication that supports their continuing growth with automation solution customers. “Acquiring this machining center is an investment in our customers, our community and our future success,” said Andy Basgall, the general manager of Atlas Technologies. “This VMC will increase our production times and efficiencies to consistently deliver quality products to our markets, and create career opportunities for qualified individuals that will support our expanding metal fabrication department today and into the future.”
