The "V" in the model name stands for the industry- standard designation for a vertical mill, and company founder Gene Haas added "F1" to the name to unofficially designate it as the company's "Very First One." Developed in 1987 and introduced at IMTS '88, the Haas VF-1 became the industry benchmark for affordable CNC technology. To commemorate 30 years of the VF-1, as well as other Haas firsts, the company has launched a year-long Very First campaign that will include worldwide demo day events, a video series docu- menting both Haas and customer "very firsts," and more. The campaign will culmi- nate with the company's first Haas VF-1 being brought to IMTS 2018. :: Haas Automation Inc. 800-331-6746, :: Global Machine Parts Appoints Regional Sales Manager Global Machine Parts has appointed Mark Heuer to regional sales manager.
