PROGRAMMING6. REFERENCE POSITION
Tools ca be returned to the floating reference position.
A floating reference point is a position on a machine tool, and serves as
a reference point for machine tool operation.
A floating reference point need not always be fixed, but can be moved as
Command of the intermediate position of the floating reference
(Absolute command/incremental command)
A floating reference point becomes a machine coordinate position
memorized by pressing the soft key
[SET FRP] on the current positions
display screen (see III–11.1.8). The G30.1 block first positions the tool
at the intermediate point along the specified axes at rapid traverse rate,
then further moves the tool from the intermediate point to the floating
reference point at rapid traverse rate.
Before using G30.1, cancel cutter compensation and tool length
A floating reference point is not lost even if power is turned off.
