Atlas Technologies Adds Vertical Machining Center

May 1, 2017

Atlas Technologies announced the installation of a Haas large-frame vertical machining center (VMC) at its Fenton, MI, facility. The VF-12-series VMC is designed to accommodate large-volume machining required to service Atlas’ various customer markets.

The VMC adds to the Fenton facility’s 51,000 sq. ft. of inhouse manufacturing space that currently provides custom welding and fabrication as well as contract-manufacturing services. The VMC features a 150 by 28-in. T-slot table with 50 taper configurations and spindle speeds to 10,000 rpm. The machine’s capabilities will streamline the manufacturing process to meet increasing production demands while providing a higher quality of metal fabrication, according to company officials.

“The VMC will increase our production times and efficiencies to consistently deliver quality products to our markets,” says Andy Basgall, general manager at Atlas Technologies, “along with creating career opportunities for qualified individuals that will support our expanding metal-fabrication department today and into the future.”
