Our Next Generation Control (NGC) is the latest update to the machine tool industry’s most user-friendly CNC control. We have significantly improved the user interface, with a more consistent and intuitive navigation experience, vastly improved connectivity, and an all-new Visual Programming System.
The Next Generation Control has the ability to send you, and others you designate, Email and SMS text notifications about the operating status of your Haas machine. Set up is simple and easy through the MyHaas Portal and HaasCNC.com website. HaasConnect is free with every new Haas that has the Next Generation Control.

* HaasConnect is currently only available in US and Canada, to check availability in your country, contact your Haas Factory Outlet.
Dynamic Work Offsets (DWO) and Tool Center Point Control (TCPC) are software features in the Next Generation Control that greatly simplify multi-axis machining when using 4th- and 5th-axis rotary tables. DWO/TCPC eliminates the need to locate the workholding in exactly the same place, or repost the part program every time a job is set up. In the case of 4th- and 5th-axis contouring programs using TCPC, or 3+2 programs using DWO, the Haas control recognizes the part position and creates the correct toolpath, regardless of the workholding position, greatly reducing set-up time or reposting time.
The Next Generation Control has a vastly improved and simplified network set-up interface. Wired connectivity via Ethernet comes standard, but for more convenience, you can add the optional WiFi capability. With the NGC, there are no limitations with any common operating system; connectivity is fast and reliable.
The NGC now has 1 GB of standard program memory. This means you'll have the ability to store many programs in the control, eliminating the need to use an external device for program backup. Large programs for complex molds, for example, can now be run from memory, doing away with the connectivity issues often experienced when running from the DNC or FNC.
With Ethernet as a standard feature, connecting the NGC to your computer or shop network is incredibly easy. Ethernet is a super fast and reliable network connection that has replaced the RS-232 serial port. Using the Net Share feature in the Haas control, you can easily share, send, run, and edit programs from your desktop or Haas control in real time.
Navigation has been vastly simplified in the NGC, with consistent functionality of the cursor keys, and intuitive icons throughout the user experience, making the transition from the previous generation control seamless.
The operator Help interface has been enhanced with icons that provide easy access to information for any feature or option within the control.
The Haas Visual Programming System (VPS) lets you quickly create G-code programs for basic part features. The part-feature templates use a form-like interface with which you define the feature. VPS also includes a custom template generator so you can make templates for your own part features or frequently used programs. Your HFO’s Applications Department can help you get started.
