The user can assign any one of the following nine characters as the axis
name: A, B, C, U, V, W, X, Y, T, and Z.Parameter No. 1020 is used to
determine the name of each axis.
When this parameter is set to 0 or a character other than the valid
characters is specified, an axis name from 1 to 8 is assigned by default.
When a default axis name (1 to 8) is used, operation in the MEM mode,
MDI mode and RMT mode is disabled.
If a duplicate axis name is specified in the parameter, operation is enabled
only for the axis specified first.
If A, B, U, V and W is specified an axis name, the punch press macro
function is not available.
Combined use of the inch system and the metric system is not allowed.
There are functions that cannot be used between axes with different unit
systems (circular interpolation, cutter compensation, etc.). For the
increment system, see the machine tool builder’s manual.
