Haas Automation Produces its 125,000th CNC Machine
Haas Automation built its first VF-1 vertical machining center in 1988. This CNC machine was remarkable because it was the first U.S.-built machine of its type priced below $50,000. In January 2012, the company built its 125,000th CNC machine tool, which happened to be the latest version of the VF-1 model. Comparing these two milestone machines is revealing.
