Haas Automation is the largest CNC machine tool builder in the Western World. Haas Automation manufactures a full line of CNC vertical and horizontal machining centers, CNC lathes, rotary tables and 5C indexers. Haas machine tools and rotary products are built to the exacting specifications of Gene Haas to deliver higher accuracy, repeatability and durability than any other machine tools on the market.
Founded by Gene Haas in 1983, Haas Automation has always produced top-quality products at affordable prices. By relying on volume sales rather than per-unit profits to build the company, Haas Automation delivers more standard features, high-tech innovations and rock-solid engineering than perhaps any other CNC manufacturer in the world – and at better prices!
In 1983, Gene Haas founded Haas Automation, Inc., to manufacture economical and reliable machine tools. The company entered the machine tool industry with the first-ever, fully automatic, programmable collet indexer – a device used to position parts for machining with very high accuracy.
The Haas 5C collet indexer was a huge success, and during the next four years, the company expanded its product line to include a wide selection of fully programmable rotary tables, rotary indexers and machine tool accessories.
To this day, Haas produces all critical components in-house, using dedicated state-of-the-art CNC machine tools to ensure accuracy. The company’s 1-million-square-foot facility makes extensive use of automated, “lights-out” flexible manufacturing systems (FMS) and robotic loaders to streamline production capabilities and reduce costs.
