Only use the emergency power down in emergencies, as this hard shutdown can damage the workpiece and SmartBench.

Be aware that if SmartBench is switched off during operation: 

  • The machine’s position will be lost. It will need to be rehomed and the job restarted.

  • If the tool is stuck in the materialy you will need to manually remove it from the workpiece, as per the instructions in the next part of this article.
