SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
This manual includes safety precautions for protecting the user and
preventing damage to the machine. Precautions are classified into
Warnings and Cautions according to their bearing on safety. Also,
supplementary information is described as Notes. Read the Warnings,
Cautions, and Notes thoroughly before attempting to use the machine.
WARNING
Applied when there is a danger of the user being
injured or when there is a danger of both the user
being injured and the equipment being damaged if
the approved procedure is not observed.
CAUTION
Applied when there is a danger of the equipment
being damaged, if the approved procedure is not
observed.
NOTE
Notes is used to indicate supplementary information
other than Warnings and Cautions.
- Read this manual carefully, and store it in a safe place.
