You can command a feed in a program with G01 for the axis assigned to the rotary unit. For example,

G01 A90. F50. ;
turns the A Axis 90 degrees.


Every line of 4th/5th axis code must specify a feedrate. Limit the feedrate to less than 75 IPM when drilling. The recommended feeds for finish machining in 3-axis work should not exceed 50 to 60 IPM with at least 0.0500" to 0.0750" stock remaining for the finish operation.

Rapid moves are not allowed; rapid motions, entering and exiting holes (full retract peck-drill cycle) are not supported.

When programming simultaneous 5-axis motion, less material allowance is required and higher feedrates may be permitted. Depending on finish allowance, length of cutter and type of profile being cut, higher feedrates may be possible. For example, when cutting mold lines or long flowing contours, feedrates may exceed 100 IPM.

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.
