Gene Haas founded Haas Automation, Inc., in 1983 to produce the industry’s first completely automatic programmable collet indexer– a gadget used to position parts for machining with really high precision. Designed to increase production in Gene’s own factory, the trademarked Haas 5C collet indexer was a substantial success, and over the next 4 years, the business expanded its line of product to include a broad choice of totally programmable rotary tables, rotary indexers, and machine tool accessories. Haas sells all over the state of AR.
In 1988, Haas Automation achieved another market turning point, by presenting the first American-built vertical machining center (VMC) to sell for less than $50,000– a price unheard of at the time. The Haas VF-1 sold for a published cost of $49,900, and rapidly ended up being the industry standard for cost effective CNC technology. The very first VF-1 prototypes were presented in 1988 at the International Machine Tool Show (IMTS 88) in Chicago, Illinois. The “V” in the model name represents vertical– an industry-standard classification for a vertical mill– and business founder Gene Haas included “F1” to unofficially designate it as the business’s “Very Very first One.” That very first device was the foundation of Haas Automation’s industry-leading VF Series vertical machining.
