This G code is used to move the machine’s axes at the maximum speed. It is primarily used to quickly position the machine to a given point before each feed (cutting) command. This G code is modal, so a block with G00 causes all following blocks to be rapid motions until another cutting move is specified.

note: Generally, rapid motion will not be in a straight line. Each axis specified is moved at the same speed, but all axes will not necessarily complete their motions at the same time. The machine will wait until all motions are complete before starting the next command.

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.
