Haas Automation Races into IMTS 2014


Haas Automation, Inc., America’s largest machine tool builder, will race into IMTS this year with 18 machines in 10,000 square feet of booth space. There will be plenty of exciting things to see in Booth S-8119 in the South Hall of McCormick Place, including the No. 41 Haas Automation Chevrolet SS that Kurt Busch drove to victory at Martinsville Speedway in March.

Of the 18 machines on display and cutting parts in the Haas booth, many will be all-new since the last IMTS, with four products actually debuting at this year’s show: the DM-1 40-taper drill/mill center, the ST-55 large-through-bore turning center, the UMC-750SS high-speed universal machining center, and the TRT100 high-speed dual-axis rotary table. A number of new options and operator convenience features will also debut at the show, including a coolant tank oil skimmer, a mist extractor, a minimum-quantity lubrication system, and more.

In addition to checking out the wide selection of high-value Haas machines running demos, visitors to the Haas booth can also pick up a collector’s pack of limited-edition Haas trading cards, featuring special Haas machine cards, and all of the Stewart-Haas Racing NASCAR drivers. Some of the packets will contain special winner cards that can be redeemed for a variety of collectible items, like an actual race suit worn by Kurt Busch during the 2014 Cup Series, one of Kurt’s race helmets, die cast models of the No. 41 Haas Automation Chevrolet, and limited-edition No. 41 T-shirts and hats. One lucky visitor will even win an on-track ride-along with Kurt Busch! All told, Haas will give away 1700 T-shirts, 1200 hats, 20 die-cast cars, 2 race suits, 2 helmets, and 1 ride-along during the show. That’s a lot swag!

To ensure there’s enough NASCAR to go around, a second Stewart-Haas Racing No. 41 Haas Automation Chevrolet SS will be on display in the Today’s Technology Center in West Hall. Visitors will see how Stewart-Haas Racing is implementing the latest advancements in manufacturing technology to gain the winning edge. SHR drivers Kurt Busch, Tony Stewart, Kevin Harvick, and Danica Patrick make up the most intriguing team competing in Sprint Cup racing, and show attendees can get up close and personal with one of the racecars they routinely drive at more than 200 mph!
