caution: The machine executes all motions exactly as programmed. Do not use a work piece in the machine while dry run is operating.

The Dry Run function is used to check a program quickly without actually cutting parts. To select Dry Run:

  1. While in MEM or MDI mode, press DRY RUN.

    When in Dry Run, all rapids and feeds are run at the speed selected with the jog speed buttons.

  2. Dry Run can only be turned on or off when a program has finished or RESET is pressed. Dry Run makes all of the commanded X Y Z moves and requested tool changes. The override keys can be used to adjust the Spindle speeds.
    note: Graphics mode is just as useful and may be safer as it does not move the axes of the machine before the program is checked.

Be aware: Many service and repair procedures should be done only by authorized personnel. The service technicians at your Haas Factory Outlet (HFO) have the training, experience, and are certified to do these tasks safely and correctly. You should not do machine repair or service procedures unless you are qualified and knowledgeable about the processes.

Danger: Some service procedures can be dangerous or life-threatening. DO NOT attempt a procedure that you do not completely understand. Contact your Haas Factory Outlet (HFO) and schedule a service technician visit if you have any doubts about doing a procedure.
