Dynamic Work Offsets (DWO) and Tool Center Point Control (TCPC) are software features in the Haas control that make setting up 4- and 5-axis jobs as easy as setting up a 3-axis machine. They allow an operator to place the part and fixture anywhere on the machine’s table or platter, regardless of the location that was programmed in the CAM system. DWO and TCPC determine the difference between the centers-of-rotation programmed in the CAM system and the centers-of-rotation within the machine and apply the appropriate offsets.
- Simplifies setup operations – part and fixture can be placed anywhere on the table / platter
- Saves money by eliminating costly workholding, like self-centering fixtures
- Eliminates the need to regenerate programs from the CAM system
- Makes setting up 5-axis jobs as easy as setting up a 3-axis machine
