Video Overview

  1. Check that the probe system and connections to the machine are  functioning correctly.
    • Check that the probe system and connections to the machine are functioning correctly.

      • Parts Required for this Step: 12133, 13131, 43121, 48382, 28392, 28210, 1111.

        • Reminder: Make sure to remove the spindle before starting the process and removing the spindle.

    • Before beginning this procedure check to see if the fuse is dead. If the fuse is dead go here.

      • Note: View the Ring Gauge item page for more detailed part information.

    • Refer to the Wiring Diagram prior to starting step 4.

  2. In MDI, enter: M59 P1134.
    • In MDI, enter: M59 P1134.

    • Hold the Work Probe within range of the OMI. Press and Hold CYCLE START.

    • Gently depress the stylus, the control pendant will beep indicating the probe is activated.

    • Contact Supervisor is there is a problem

    • Rotate the probe by hand to check runout.

    • If runout exceeds 0.0005" or 0.013 mm, adjustment is required.

    • Enter the runout reading.

    • Gently loosen the second set of two opposite screws.

      • These will be used to push the stylus mount into alignment.

    • Tighten the screw ON THE SAME SIDE as the highest indicator reading.

      • This moves the stylus tip away from the indicator.

    • As you tighten the “pushing” screw you will need to loosen the opposite adjustment screw and locking screw slightly to allow movement.

    • Insert the Work Probe into the spindle.

    • Place the magnetic base on the table and align the indicator tip to the probe's stylus.

    • Jog the axes in 0.001 inch increments until the indicator touches the stylus.

    • With the indicator tip set against the stylus press E-STOP, so the probe isn’t accidentally ejected during adjustment.

    • Magnetic Base to mount the Indicator

    • "Calibration Bar", generally consisting of a 1/2" or 12 mm gauge pin clamped in a collet style toolholder.

    • Test Indicator accurate to 0.0005" or 0.013 mm

      • An accurately bored hole in a part or fixture can also be used in place of the Ring Gauge fixture.

    • On the probe body, loosen the two upper LOCKING set screws slightly, and then lightly tighten them.

    • WARNING: The four lower sets of screws adjust the position of the stylus mount. Very small adjustments have a large effect on the stylus runout.

    • Decide which dirsdfgsdfgn the stylus needs to be adjusted to reduce runout.

      • Loosen and then slightly tighten the two opposing screws that are NOT inline with this direction to add some friction.

    • This completes the calibration routine and the status box will display COMPLETED.

    • With the Work Probe runout set within specification and both Probes calibrated, the machine is ready to measure tools and work pieces using the WIPS probing routines.

    • Please complete [invalid guide link]

    • The WIPS Calibration Menus are explained in the Haas VMC Operator's Manual.

    • Press MDI/DNC.

    • Press PRGRM/CONVRS.

    • Select the SETUP tab.

    • Select the TOOL PROBE CALIBRATION tab.

    • Insert the Calibration Bar into the spindle.

    • With the Indicator mounted on the table, measure the runout of the Calibration Bar gauge pin.

    • If runout exceeds 0.0005 inches or 0.013 mm the bar will need to be adjusted or replaced.

    • Using the Z-axis and an indicator, check the distance from the face of the spindle to the tip of the gauge pin.

    • This is NOT a Gauge Line measurement.

    • Use this method consistently to measure the Calibration Bar and the results will always be repeatable for quality work.




    • Continue to adjust inward with each set of screws to reduce the runout as close to zero as possible.

    • When runout is below 0.0005" or 0.013 mm, carefully tighten each upper locking screw while at the same time tightening the opposite lower adjustment screw.

      • Then do the other set.

    • Note the on-screen Z-axis value, this is your Calibration Bar length.

    • Write this value on a piece of paper.

    • Use a micrometer to find the diameter of the gauge pin used in the Calibration Bar and write this number down.

    • Follow the on-screen prompts. Jogging Z-axis, bring the calibration bar just above the tool probe, and press F1.

    • Then Jog the X axis to center the bar over the tool probe and press F1 again. Do the same for the Y axis.

    • Enter the tool number you will use for the Calibration Bar.

    • Press CYCLE START to execute the automatic calibration routine.

    • The Calibration Bar will touch off the top of the Tool Probe, and in four places on the side of the probe.

    • When the program is finished, the CALIBRATION status box will display COMPLETED. Calibration of the Work Probe can begin.

    • Press CANCEL and select the Work Probe Calibration tab.

    • Clamp the Ring Gauge to the table within reach of the probe.

    • Enter the Work Offset to be used for Work Probe calibration.

    • Remove the calibration bar from the spindle and insert the Work Probe in its place.

    • Measure the Work Probe length with a machinist’s scale (accuracy of 1/16 inch or 1.5 mm).

    • Note that the standard Renishaw probe uses a 0.2362 inch or 6 mm diameter ball.

    • Now enter the length of the Work Probe as well as the diameter of the indicating ball.

    • Measure the ring gauge with an inside micrometer or bore gauge.

    • If the Inside Diameter is etched on the Gauge, that number can be used.

    • Next enter the diameter of the Ring Gauge and press WRITE/ENTER.

    • Next enter the diameter of the Ring Gauge and press WRITE/ENTER.

    • Next enter the diameter of the Ring Gauge and press WRITE/ENTER.

    • Now enter the Calibration Bar length. Use the value you wrote down in Step 15.

    • Next, enter the micrometer reading previously noted in Step 16.


    • In MDI Mode, enter: M59 P1133; G04 P1.0: M59 P1134.

    • With the doors open, press and hold CYCLE START.

    • After the program has run, gently tap the Tool Probe with your finger.

    • The control pendant will beep each time the Tool Probe is depressed. The Tool Probe is activated.

    • Press RESET to end the activation.

    • Press Start!

    • With the locking screws tight, check the runout at the stylus one more time.

    • Now that the work probe stylus is centered, calibration of both probes can begin.

    • With the calibration bar in the spindle, position the pin above the edge of the ring gauge.

    • Place a shim, feeler gauge, or slip of paper over the gauge.

    • Press the .0001/.1 button. Jog the Z-axis so the tip of the bar slightly contacts the paper. Press F1.

    • Enter the length of the calibration bar from Step 15. Press the WRITE/ENTER button.

    • Enter the thickness of the shim used, in this case a piece of paper at 0.003 inch. Press WRITE/ENTER again.
