All Haas CNC machines are equipped with locks on the operator doors and a key switch on the side of the control pendant to lock and unlock setup mode. Generally, setup mode status (locked or unlocked) affects how the machine operates when the doors are opened.

Setup mode should be locked out (the keyswitch in the vertical, locked position) at most times. In locked mode, the enclosure doors are locked closed during CNC program execution, spindle rotation or axis movement. The doors automatically unlock when the machine is not in cycle. Many machine functions are unavailable with the door open.

When unlocked, setup mode allows a skilled machinist more access to the machine to set up jobs. In this mode, machine behavior is dependent on whether the doors are opened or closed. Opening the doors when the machine is in cycle stops motion and reduces spindle speed. The machine allows several functions in setup mode with the doors opened, usually at reduced speed. The following charts summarize the modes and allowed functions.

danger: Do not attempt to override safety features. Doing so makes the machine unsafe and voids the warranty.

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.
