There\’re already eight DMU 5-axis machines imported from Germany in our factory. Our boss ordered another 2 HAAS 5-axis CNC Machines in America this month, and they will be arrived to our work-shop in August, 2019.
As you know, HAAS is the most famous 5-axis CNC machines in America, which was founded in 1987 by Gene HAAS. He began developing its first vertical machining center (VMC), a machine designed to perform such machining operations as milling, drilling, tapping, and boring. Employing the latest equipment and procedures for close-tolerance manufacturing, the first VF-1 prototypes were completed in 1988 and introduced at the International Machine Tool Show (IMTS 88) in Chicago, Illinois.
At that time, industry scholars and members of the trade press were skeptical that an American-made machining center could be sold for less than $50,000. HAAS not only delivered on the price, but delivered the product, as well, something other manufacturers often were unable to do. Today, the HAAS VF-1 still sells for less than $50,000, and in most instances, a customer’s machine can be delivered within just a few weeks of the initial order.
To ensure accuracy, HAAS manufactures all critical components in-house using dedicated state-of-the-art CNC machine tools. The company’s 1.1-million-square-foot facility makes extensive use the latest lean manufacturing methods and just-in-time production practices to streamline production capabilities and reduce costs.
Today, HAAS manufactures four major product lines: vertical machining centers (VMCs), horizontal machining centers (HMCs), CNC lathes, and rotary tables, as well as a number of large five-axis and specialty machines. All HAAS products are manufactured at the company’s expansive facility in Oxnard, California – the largest, most modern machine tool manufacturing operation in the United States.
