Haas Automation Inc. is pleased to announce the installation of the 200,000th Haas CNC machine—another major milestone in the company’s history.

It was 30 years ago that a little upstart machine tool company from Southern California introduced its first vertical machining center at IMTS 1988 in Chicago. The Haas VF-1—affectionately known as the Very First One—quickly became the industry benchmark for affordable CNC technology. 

Today, Haas Automation is one of the largest machine tool builders in the world, producing more machines per month than nearly any other builder. The company’s 200,000th machine—a UMC-​​​​​750SS universal machining center—rolled off the production line and was installed at Vineburg Machining Inc. in Carson City, Nevada. 

The UMC-750SS is a five-axis, 40-taper universal machining center with 30" x 20" x 20" travels, 1,200 ipm rapids and an integrated high-speed, dual-axis trunnion table. The machine is equipped with a 15,000-rpm inline direct-drive spindle, a high-speed 40+1 side-mount tool changer and Haas Automation’s powerful high-speed machining software. To simplify job set up, the UMC-​​​​​​​750SS features dynamic work offsets and tool center point control, and comes standard with Haas Automation’s wireless intuitive probing system.
