PROGRAMMING19. AXIS CONTROL FUNCTIONS
For the C-axis commands between the M code for nibbling mode and the
M code for nibling mode cancel, an alarm is indicated if the C-axis
movement amount per block exceeds the value set with the parameter
The C-axis command is ignored when signal TNG is on.
This function automatically compensates the position of the C-axis to
orient each tool in the specified direction. This simplifies mechanical
adjustment such as adjusting the reference position when installing tools.
Up to 20 compensation settings are specified in parameters No. 16430 to
No. 16449. Up to 20 tool numbers are specified in parameters No. 16370
to No. 16389.
The C-axis is compensated when the tool moves around the C-axis after
T commands have been specified.
Tool numbers of tools must be specified with address T
followed by up to four digits.
This function compensates backlash along the C-axis for each tool group.
Changing the backlash compensation for each tool group enables
higher-precision machining. Up to 20 compensation settings are
specified in parameters No. 16390 to No. 16409. Up to 20 tool numbers
are specified in parameters No. 16370 to No. 16389.
The tool numbers must be specified with address T followed
by up to four digits.
