caution: Do not exceed the maximum tool changer specifications. Extremely heavy tool weights should be distributed evenly. This means heavy tools should be located across from one another, not next to each other. Ensure there is adequate clearance between tools in the tool changer; this distance is 3.6" for a 20-pocket.
note: Low air pressure or insufficient volume reduces the pressure applied to the tool release piston and will slow down tool change time or will not release the tool.
warning: Stay away from the tool changer during power up, power down, and during tool changer operations.

Always load tools into the tool changer from the spindle. Never load a tool directly into the tool changer carousel. Some mills have remote tool changer controls to let you inspect and replace tools at the carousel. This station is not for initial loading and tool assignment.

caution: Tools that make a loud noise when released indicate a problem and should be checked before serious damage to the tool changer occurs.

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.
