Haas VF6

The Haas VF6 comes in at 5 basic configurations, but all have a travel of 64” x 32” x 30” (XYZ). Various combinations of taper and spindle speed make this VF series Haas a workhorse for large-piece vertical machining in 40-taper, 50-taper, super speed, and 5-axis machining. Prices for new Haas VF6 begin well over $100,000 as compared with used which start around in the $30,000 for late 1990’s models.

Haas VMC Controls

The Haas control makes the VMC (Vertical Machining Centers) easy to operate. The Haas CNC VF6 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 VF6, 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 VF6 Haas, ask if the controls have been updated. You’ll want to consider what options you have to update that particular used Hass VF6 for sale.

As computer technology advances, Haas makes their controls even faster and smarter. A newer Haas VF6 for sale may list such features as:

  • HaasConnect Remote Monitoring
  • Ethernet connectivity
  • DWO/TCPC (see below)
  • User-Definable Macros
  • WiFi Connectivity
  • Expandable Memory

DWO/TCP on VF6 Haas Used CNC’s

When looking for a used Haas VF6 for sale, consider asking if the DWO/TCP option is included. This stands for “Dynamic Work Offsets and Tool Center Point Control.” It’s a software feature designed by Haas to increase productivity and reduce setup times. It makes setting up easy by allowing an operator to place the part and fixture anywhere on the machine’s table or platter. The machine will find it no matter the location that was programmed by the CAM system. DWO and TCPC determine the difference between the centers of rotation which are programmed in the CAM system and the centers of rotation inside the machine and applies the appropriate offsets. This saves money by eliminating costly work holding, like self-centering fixtures and the regeneration of programs by CAM systems.
