Program approach vectors (moving tool paths) to the workpiece at a safe distance above or to the side of the workpiece. This is important when you program the approach vectors with a rapid move (G00), because the axes arrive at the programmed position at different times; the axis with shortest distance from target arrives first, and longest distance last. However, a linear move at a high feed rate forces the axes to arrive at the commanded position at the same time, avoiding the possibility of a crash.

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.
