AMI Increases Capabilities with New Equipment

(Manhattan, Kan., July 17, 2008) - The Advanced Manufacturing Institute at Kansas State University is increasing its capabilities with a new Haas VF-2SSYT Vertical Machine Center.

This new mill has a larger work envelope (30” x 20” x 20”, xyz), a fourth axis with a rotary table, and it has a bigger motor (30hp at 12,000 rpm). This machine will not only increase efficiency, but also provide added reliability with these new features.

In addition to this new machine, AMI’s manufacturing and prototyping shop is also equipped with many other quality manufacturing manual and CNC machines to enhance and streamline business operations.
