Haas Parameter 313 POCKET INCREMENT – Haas Mill
Used for the bridge mill. Under normal circumstances it should be set to 1. If, for example, it is set to 2, the control will only recognize every other pocket; that is, it will treat the tools and pockets as follows:
Tool 1 is in pocket 1
Tool 2 is in pocket 3
Tool 3 is in pocket 5
Tool 4 is in pocket 7 etc…
If this parameter is set to 3, the control will only recognize every third pocket, and so on. It is the operator’s responsibility to ensure that the total number of pockets in the tool changer is evenly divisible by this parameter value. If not, the control will pick the wrong pocket after the carousel has exceeded a full revolution.
