First homing

What is homing? 

Homing allows SmartBench to find its zero coordinates in the X, Y and Z Axis. 

You will need to square and home SmartBench before you can use it for the first time. 

The quickest and easiest way to square SmartBench is by using the automatic auto-squaring feature.

Homing SmartBench

When you finish the warranty registration process, or when you turn on SmartBench, the safety screen is the first screen to come up.

Ensure that you pay close attention to this screen, and read it in full. 

When you are ready to proceed, press the button at the bottom of the screen to confirm that you have read and understood the instruction manual. 

The following screen will ask you if SmartBench needs to auto-square the XY. 

Press “Yes, enable auto-square”.

Ensure SmartBench is clear. 

Remove the extraction hose from the Z head. 

Press the button in the middle of the screen to home. 

SmartBench will start the homing process. 

The console will tell you when SmartBench is carrying out the squaring part of the homing process. 

The auto-squaring process will drive the X beam into the legs and create a loud stalling noise. This is completely normal, and nothing to worry about.

When SmartBench has finished homing, SmartBench will have a green light, and the console will show the main menu screen.
