CNC Controls: Haas

One of the major computer numerical controls (CNC) used on the shop floor today is the Haas control. While other machine tools rely on controls made by different manufacturers, every Haas machine is equipped with a Haas control.
These classes describe the specific step-by-step instructions necessary for the basic operation of the Haas control. Classes are split to focus specifically on either the Haas mill or Haas lathe. Students first learn how to power up, home the machine, and enter offsets. More difficult classes focus on activating and executing programs, adding programs from various storage methods, and using the editing features of the control.

Jog keys manually control axis motions. Function keys perform a variety of tasks, depending on the mode and display.Gaining a comprehensive understanding of the control panel's different functions will prepare users to successfully perform operations, utilizing the full capabilities of the Next Generation Control.BeginnerEnglish
OnlineMachining310CNC Controls: Haas310020 Haas Next Generation and Classic Controls 111 Haas Next Generation and Classic Controls compares the two versions of control panels from Haas Automation®, Inc. While the two control panels look and function similarly, some key differences separate the Next Generation Control (NGC) and Classic Haas Control (CHC). Operators switching between using CHC and NGC machines must adjust to differences in hardware and software as well as changes to the control keypad and display screen. Additionally, the NGC uses updated cybersecurity features with which operators must familiarize themselves.In order to successfully navigate the operational nuances of the CHC and NGC, it is vital for operators to develop a comprehensive understanding of the differences between the two control panels. After taking this class, users will be able to distinguish between many of the distinct features of the CHC and NGC.BeginnerEnglish
OnlineMachining310CNC Controls: Haas310100 Haas NGC: Entering Mill Offsets 201 Haas NGC: Entering Mill Offsets 201 covers the basics of offsets used on Haas Automation®, Inc.'s Next Generation Control (NGC) mill. Offsets on the NGC mill include work offsets, tool length offsets, tool wear offsets, diameter geometry offsets, and coolant position offsets. The class describes how to access and navigate the offsets menus on the NGC control panel. Additionally, the class explains how milling operators determine and enter offset values both manually and using the Part Zero Set and Tool Offset Measure functions available on the NGC.In order to machine parts successfully, NGC mill operators should understand the concepts of work, tool length, diameter geometry, tool wear, and coolant position offsets and possess basic skills to enter and adjust these offsets before and during a milling operation. The correct application of offsets allows milling operators to avoid machine and workpiece damage, minimize tool wear, and produce parts with the proper tolerance.IntermediateEnglish
