HAAS Tool Probe Calibration Problem


Jun 4, 2022

I found my tool probe anvil a little off so I decided to flatten it out and perform a tool and work probe calibration.

When I start the tool probe calibration in my VF3SSYT w/ NGC control the spindle goes up in Z to almost max height. Then it crawls down at a ridiculously slow speed to some point above the probe and goes back up in Z to try again. (Takes almost 10 minutes, and is extremely painful to watch.) I went into the macro variable page and set all values between 10550-10599 to zero. Still no luck.

Thanks for any help!

Calibrating the tool probe shouldn't require any macro variable changes. VPS has all the inputs required - T#, gauge length, diameter. Sounds like something is screwed up because variables have been changed that shouldn't have been changed, inputs on the VPS menu are wrong, there is a bug in the software, or a bad probing cycle was loaded into the machine from the factory.

edit: realizing this is a pretty old post that got revived but info is still relevant
