- The HACO Group: More than just sheet metal machinery
HACO started in 1965 as a small Flemish family-owned business serving local industrial companies. Today, we are a group offering a full range of high-quality solutions, which are known around the globe. From professional woodworking, sheet metal working, and aluminum milling machines to machine controls and surfacing installations.
From the very beginning, our principal goal was to understand the needs and requirements of our customers and to provide for them better than anyone else does. When one of our clients has a special problem, we take pride in being able to come up with exactly the right solution. But this specialization has not kept us from diversifying.
Originally famous for our sheet metal and woodworking machines, HACO has become so much more than just a manufacturer of punching machines, bending machines and shears. Since the mid-nineties, HACO has evolved into a company that produces not only sheet metal machines, but also larger and more complex machines, like machining centers and lathes.
With the acquisition of Mubea Systems in 1996 and the take-over of FAT (Fabryka Automatow Tokarskich) from Poland in 1999, the HACO group was able to offer machines for the cutting and editing of very large profiles and parts.
The HACO Fiber Lasers: unmatched value for small to medium-sized companies
Up until now, Fiber Lasers were inaccessible for smaller companies. Too expensive yet coveted by some, those who wish to integrate cutting and freeing themselves from the specialized laser cutters companies or those that seek to gain efficiency by replacing a plasma cutter or punching machine. With subcontracting you have no control over the production process, prices or deadlines and add further constraints on administration and logistics.
With the introduction of the HFL range the Fiber Laser Cutting machines have become accessible for businesses of all sizes. High quality machines for extremely competitive pricing with the best price-to-quality ratio on the market. The HFL range offers a wide array of different machines from smaller flat bed machines to large tube cutting machines with semi-automatic loading. With power ranges up to 15 kW the HFL Fiber Lasers can cut thicker materials without loss of precision. Equiped with PRECITEC cutting heads and IPG sources high quality pieces are made effortlessly.
Installation, training and after-sales are what you can expect from HACO, impressive performances from start to finish.
