Shop Tip: Haas Setup and Run Modes

Posted by CNC Reporter on Oct 24th, 2012.

Haas Automation’s Setup and Run Modes are a keyswitch addition to their control that offers an extra layer of safety and functionality. ¬†Introduced in their 2011 line of machines, most operators had to learn a new addition to a familiar control.

Run Mode

Setup Mode

  • Rapids 25% max
  • Spindle 750 RPM max
  • Must hold “Cycle Start” to run the machine with the doors open
