Clark students tour Haas Automation factory

On Wednesday February 27th, 30 students from Clark’s Computer-Aided Manufacturing class FIRST Robotics Team 696 toured the Haas Automation factory in Oxnard, CA. This incredible facility features over 1.2 million square feet of indoor space housing hundreds of CNC machines, and multiple high-volume assembly lines. Students got to witness first-hand the steps of assembling a machine from the raw casting, to installing the linear guideways and ballscrews, to fitting the enclosure and electronics, and finally validating and testing the assembled machine. Photos of the visit are shown below.
