Lathes with an Automatic Parts Loader use this command to inform the control that the subsequent axes commands are for the APL (not the lathe). See the Haas APL manual.

Lathes with Bar Feeders use this command to inform the control that the subsequent V-axis commands move the Bar Feeder V-axis, and are not interpreted as an incremental Y-axis move of the lathe turret. This command must be followed by a G161 command to cancel this mode. For example:

G160 ; G00 V-10.0 ; G161 ;

The above example moves the Bar Feeder 10 units (in/mm) to the right of its home position. This command is sometimes used to position the Bar Feeder pushrod as a part stop.

note: Any Bar Feeder movements commanded this way are not used in bar length calculations by the control. If incremental bar feed movements are required, a G105 J1.0 command is more appropriate. See the Bar Feeder Manual for more information.

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.
