Haas mill classes are basic classes intended for individuals that will setup and run a Haas Mill (VF/VM/MiniMill/EC/UMC/TM Series). Operators should have general machining knowledge prior to taking any of the classes.
Below are brief descriptions of the Iowa Haas mill training courses and what is covered in each class.
Depending on your machine model and configuration, you may select the MOP, MPRO and (if equipped) WIPS.
*For TM Models, you will want to take the MOP, MPRO and WIPS (if equipped). You do NOT have to take them the same week. If you have a TM, the IPS (Intuitive Programming System) will be covered in the MOP class.
FOR TM and MOP Classes: The class also covers the IPS (Intuitive Programming System) and the new Next Generation (NG2) Control with VPS (Visual Programming System). It is recommended if you have both the old style and new NG2 Control that you watch this short video Haas NG2 Control from Haas prior to attending the class.
Please call or email the Cedar Rapids Training Coordinator at 319-734-3403 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
The 1-day Basic Operator class is intended for individuals that will setup and run a Haas mill. The course covers use of the Haas control panel, download and upload of programs, the setting of tool length offsets, the setting of work coordinate offsets and production set up and operation of the machine tool.
NOTE: If you have a TM, the IPS (Intuitive Programming System) will be covered in this class.
This 2-day Basic Programming class is intended for individuals that use G-code to program Haas mills. The course covers program format, linear and circular interpolation, tool nose radius compensation and various canned cycle used for drilling, tapping, boring, pocket milling and threading.
PREREQUISITE: Operator must have completed the Basic Mill Operator class or equivalent training/experience prior to taking the Mill Programming class.
This 1-day Probe class is a six-hour course designed for individuals that use Wireless Intuitive Probe System for setting tool length offsets and work offset coordinates. Calibration of the probe system is reviewed. Course does not cover using probes to measure features such as diameters, overall length, etc. on piece parts.
The course will include the IPS (Intuitive Programming System as well as the new Next Generation (NG2) Control with VPS (Visual Programming System). They do run very differently, so if you have a WIPS Probe on both old and new controls, it is recommended you attend this class.
PREREQUISITE: Operator must have completed the Basic Mill Operator class or equivalent training/experience prior to taking the WIPS Probe.
