Italian engineering company Chiaro Macchine Speciali builds specialist systems used by automotive manufacturers around the world. In 2015, the company took delivery of a Haas VM-6 vertical machining centre, which has allowed Chiaro engineers to reduce machining set-up times, and more easily machine a wide variety of different size parts.
Engineers love new ideas and new ways of doing things. But they love old ones, too: those uncelebrated, under-appreciated manufacturing techniques, for example, on which the modern world depends. Italian company, Termomacchine Srl, uses the latest Haas CNC machine tools to make turnkey heat induction systems for clients around the world. Heat induction is a technique almost as old as the industrial revolution itself. And yet, it’s used in manufacturing everything from silicon chips to airframes for fighter jets.
Here’s something all Haas customers know: Wherever there’s a Formula One race, there’s almost definitely a Haas Factory Outlet (HFO) nearby. For the 2016 Formula One season, national HFOs, local to many of the 21 circuits around the world, are holding open houses, screening events and race visits, allowing their customers to share in the excitement of Haas F1 Team’s inaugural year.
Students at Haas Technical Education Centre (HTEC) La Joliverie, France, enjoy learning in what is unquestionably one of the world’s best HTECs. But it’s not just about the facility’s many Haas CNC machine tools; it’s also about the long-term dedication of the school staff and a particular technical project that they’ve kept going for 30+ years, across many generations of aspiring engineers.
