Felco Trims Part Costs — Haas Customer Documentary

Felco is perhaps the world's leading brand name for garden secateurs (pruning shears), certainly Europe's. The company manufactures around 1 million pairs every year at its Swiss headquarters, where two fully automated Haas DT-1 CNC drill/tap machines have replaced conventional stamping with state-of-the-art machining. The company installed its first Haas, an EC-500 CNC horizontal machining center, in July 2011. A VM-2 vertical machining center followed soon after, and thanks to their performance and reliability, the company also chose Haas for its latest project: The automated blade machining cell.
