Haas automation products are manufactured from a company called Haas Automation, Inc. This reputable machine tool builder maintains headquarters in California and makes the best CNC vertical machining centers, CNC horizontal machining centers, CNC rotary tables and indexers, and CNC lathes and turning centers on the market.
By volume, this company is one of the largest machine tool builders in existence. The company known for outstanding Haas automation products was founded in 1983 by Gene Haas. Haas began by manufacturing a fully automatic and programmable collet indexer used to help position parts for machining with precision. However, the company expanded its operations just four years later, adding rotary tables, machine tool accessories, and rotary indexers that were all fully programmable.
At that same time, other Haas automation products were added to include the vertical machining center or VMC. This machine is capable of performing a wide range of operations such as boring, milling, tapping, and drilling. Known as VF-1, the machine was affordable and available to manufacturers offshore. One year later, prototypes of the VF-1 were finished and introduced at a tool show in Chicago.
Today, Haas automation products are not only varied but they remain of the highest caliber. Because of this, the company has become the number one trusted source for manufacturing machinery. Today, several different lines of CNC machine tools are manufactured by Haas for use in metalworking. These include:
- Horizontal Machining Centers (HMCs)
- Vertical Machining Centers (VMCs)
- Turning Centers (also referred to as CNC lathes)
- Rotary Tables and Indexers
In addition to being an ISO 9001:2008 certified company, all of the Haas automation products carry the ETL listed mark. With this, people know the machinery is certified and therefore, it conforms to strict industry standards.
Today, Haas automation products are manufactured in the US but also Canada and Britain. Markets reach around the world to countries like Holland, Israel, and others. Then in 1993, private labeling products were made for Mikron, a well-respected machine tool builder in Switzerland. As such, distribution for Haas automation products expanded further into Europe..
