A good and informative time was had by all at the 2015 edition of HaasTec. 

Last month, Haas Automation held Haas Tech open house at its Oxnard, California, headquarters. By all accounts, it was a huge success. The 4-day event drew 3,300 visitors from North America and 48 countries with more than 330 students. Attendees were treated to machine demonstrations involving 20 machines along with extensive tours of the 1 million square-foot facility. Of the 298 chip-making machines in the factory, 70 percent are Haas brands representing real world demonstrations.

Highlights included an autograph session from Stewart-Haas Racing’s Kurt Bush and a private Q&A meeting with him for 100 lucky attendees. In addition, 38 exhibitor booths represented major CAD/CAM, tooling and workholding manufacturers helped make the event even broader in scope.

HaasTec 2015 provided attendees an opportunity to see how the company makes its machines and rotary products, which goes a long way to show how Haas has seen such success over time. The next open house will be held in 2017.
