In this research, the operation interface for multi-axis controlled machine tools has been developed by using the haptic device that is used in the field of virtual reality. In the previous report, we had proposed the prototype system that allows us to avoid the interference between milling tool and workpiece based on force feedback sense. However, the previous system could not output the adequate force sense because the used haptic device supported only 3-DOF force feedback. In this report, in order to improve the usability of system, a high accuracy haptic device with 6-DOF force sense is newly utilized. Using the extended system, the cutter location without over cutting was able to be generated without considering tool interference.
