To load or change tools:

note: Y-Axis lathes return the turret to the zero position (spindle centerline) after a tool change.
  1. Enter MDI mode.
  2. Optional: Type the tool number that you want to change to in the format Tnn.

    If you specified a tool number, the turret indexes to that turret position. Otherwise, the turret indexes to the next or the previous tool.

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.
