There is a post on here somewhere of someone who bought one of the Ez Mazak mills, I was looking at them skeptically, until I saw the post, you don't want one of those things, bad news.I have worked with a lot of Haas machines during my short career, all being built between 2014 and 2018 to be specific. I have been called a Haas fan-boy before because I liked the machines I have worked on. They would hold tolerance and run without many issues. They are no Mazak or Okuma for sure, but they worked for what we needed them for. It seems that around late 2018 or sometime in 2019, the bean counters at Haas began to pinch production costs in an effort to stay competitive. Things like switching to galvanized steel way covers, painting enclosure steel with poor paint/coatings, not to mention all the bugs with the NGC control. If I remember correctly, Haas machines the table for the VF2 in a cell using EC1600s and finishes them with a facemill using CBN inserts.
The table on your VF2 is completely unacceptable for what a new VF2 costs. As others have said, I would refuse the machine or make Haas fix it in some way, either by replacing the table (which they likely wont do) or give you a financial kick back.
I appreciate all of the educational content Haas has put out over the years, and I appreciate their dedication to education by selling machines to colleges and schools at discounts. They are what I learned on like many others on this form. But, you can only get away with so much before your customer base begins to leave. I know many shops here in North Carolina that were once Haas only shops, and they have begun replacing those machines with anything but a Haas. I will be in the market for a medium sized VMC sometime in Q2 of 2023 and I will most likely be going with a DN Solutions DNM5700 or Mazak VC Ez20.
