Haas VMC Controls
Haas control makes the VMC (Vertical Machining Centers) easy to operate. The Haas CNC VF5 controls come with one-button features to make common multi-step functions fast. For example, a tool offset can be reduced to the push of one button. Other common functions of the one-button function include setting work offsets, homing the machine and the selection of the next tool during setup. On the Haas VF5, the jog-handle can be used in other modes to cursor through the program for overriding spindle speeds, faster editing, or to scan through offsets, parameters, etc. When buying a used VF5 Haas, ask if the controls have been updated. Youll want to consider what options you have to update that particular used Hass VF5 for sale.
