Over 100 visitors at the recent Haas Exhibition

Added to MTDCNC by HAAS Automation on 05 May 2015

Over 100 visitors from  across the UK and Ireland attended the recent Haas exhibition held in Leicester.

Haas officially launched the new UMC-750. The full simultaneous 5-axis machining centre is already proving to be a hit globally and has established itself as a market leading machine in the UK.

Comprising a compact footprint, yet boasting a large capacity, Haas is currently offering a 12,000 rpm spindle, full 5-axis simultaneous control, dynamic work offsets, tool centre point control, high speed machining, a 40+1 side mount tool changer and a host of other features for only £139,995 and delivery.
Ten of the most popular Haas CNC machine tools were also on display, all of which were cutting metal and demonstrating the latest high-productivity features and options. A range of supporting technologies and products from fellow exhibitors Delcam, Renishaw, 1st MTA, Hainbuch, Hangsterfer, M.A Ford and Kyocera could also be seen.

Managing director Nick Remington says: 'The exhibition has been a resounding success, with manufacturers from around the UK and Ireland having taken the time to come and see us.

'Many users explained that 5-axis machines were often advertised with a low base price but accordingly, a low specification. Priced at £139,995.00 our fully simultaneous 5 axis machine includes almost every option.

Prior to official launch 12 UMC machines had already been sold in the UK. Mr Remington commented, 'global demand for the UMC has been astonishing.'

'It's no secret that Haas is doing remarkably well in the UK,' says Mr Remington. 'We installed 505 machines in 2014 and we expect to do the same in 2015. We continue to focus our attention on our award winning service and support. As our customer base increases, so does the number of factory trained service engineers we employ. With 35 engineers strategically based around the UK, we boast the largest and fastest response service department in the industry. Our first visit fix-rate is 94.9%.

'The Haas success story is based on designing and building machines that offer greater value, provide unrivalled productivity and give peace-of-mind to our customers. As well as selling more machines, (over 1,000 every month in 2014) and increasing our market share, we’re also selling higher value machines; machines with features our customers use to make better parts, more quickly.'
