Around 2,700 people from nearly 1,300 manufacturing companies attended the HaasTec open house event in Manesar, the industrial district of Gurgaon in the second week of December. Inaugurated by the chief guest Mr PK Salhotra, Managing Director of Roop Automotive based in Sohna, the event also saw many industry and local dignitaries.
Taking the spotlight at HaasTec Manesar, and making its second public appearance in India, was the Haas UMC-750 five-axis universal machining centre which, like all machines at the event, was under power and cutting metal in order to show its capabilities to visitors. Haas specialists from the HFO (Haas Factory Outlet), Phillipscorp, CNCSSIPL were close on hand at all times to talk visitors through the demonstrations and answer any questions.
A selection of the company’s technology partners were also invited to display their complementary products. Demonstrations, tours and a live Q&A counter were among other highlights of an event that was appreciated by all, including Terence Miranda, Managing Director of the HFO in Mumbai: “We only recently witnessed 2500 visitors attend our HaasTec event in Ahmedabad, western India, so to attract a further 2700 at Manesar is equally pleasing and once more demonstrates the regional support for machine tool technologies developed by Haas. I want to say a huge thank you to all those who attended.”
