A number of settings are used to program the 4th and 5th axis.

For the 4th axis:

  • Setting 30 - 4th Axis Enable

  • Setting 34 - 4th Axis Diameter

  • Setting 48 - Mirror Image A-Axis

For the 5th axis:

  • Setting 78 - 5th Axis Enable

  • Setting 79 - 5th-Axis Diameter

  • Setting 80 - Mirror Image B-Axis

Setting 85 - Maximum Corner Rounding should be set to .0500 for 5-axis cutting. Settings lower than .0500 move the machine closer to an exact stop and cause uneven motion.

You can also use G187 Pn Ennnn to set the smoothness level in the program to slow the axes down. G187 temporarily overrides Setting 85.

caution: When cutting in 5-axis mode, poor positioning and over-travel can occur if the tool length offset (H-code) is not canceled. To avoid this problem use G90, G40, H00, and G49 in the first blocks after a tool change. This problem can occur when mixing 3-axis and 5-axis programming, restarting a program, or when starting a new job and the tool length offset is still in effect.

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.
