We know that saving energy not only helps our planet, but also saves you money. For the past 10+ years, all Haas machines have come standard with FREE features designed to limit energy consumption in your shop! Compared to other manufacturers, Haas is the best energy-saving machine available.
The 5 settings outlined below can be accessed easily through the Haas control, and can start saving you money at the flick of a switch!
ENERGY SAVING FEATURES
There are times when machines are waiting for stock, to be set up, etc. Setting 216 specifies an idle time, in seconds, at which the machine will go into power-savings mode, shutting down all servomotors and hydraulic pumps, to draw less energy while the machine is sitting idle. When the machine is ready to be used, servomotors and hydraulic pumps will power back up and resume normal operation.
Chip augers and conveyors are important systems on your machine. Without efficient chip evacuation, it is hard for a machine shop to sustainably run at high production. All Haas machines offer settings 114 and 115, so that you can run your chip conveyor efficiently, with little energy consumption needed. Setting 114 allows you to specify how often your chip conveyor turns on.
Do you need to leave your machine on throughout the night? Minimise your energy consumption by putting your machine to sleep. Using M95, followed by a duration (hh:mm) puts your Haas machine to sleep for that specified amount of time. While the machine is asleep, your mill or lathe will limit the energy being consumed for the duration noted.
Note: Lines after using M95 should be axis moves along with spindle warm-up procedures.
Setting 2 allows your mill or lathe to power off after M30. It’s perfect for starting one last long cycle part before heading home for the day. When this setting is on, the operator receives a 15-second warning after the M30 code in the program, where any key can be pushed to cancel the power-off sequence. If no action is taken, the machine will power off automatically.
While this is a simple feature, it does contribute to the overall energy savings that all Haas machines offer. Setting 199 allows shops to set a timer, in minutes, that will turn off the LCD backlight when there has been no input at the control, unless there is an alarm present. The operator can press any key to restore the control to normal operation.
