5. TOOL FUNCTION (T FUNCTION)
Tool reference position
Tool holder T11
Angular displacement from
the tool reference position
T1101 = 0.00°
T1102 = 90.00°
T1103 = 180.00°
T1104 = 270.00°
Center of the tool holder
Fig. 5.4 (b)
When the angular displacement from the tool reference
position is set to 0, the tool that is selected when the tool
holder has been indexed is used.
3) Tool position compensation
The centers of the tools move from the center of the tool holder when
using the multiple–tool system. Therefore, the tool positions need to
be compensated. However, the compensation function in the
multiple–tool system only operates in the direction of the Y axis.
Therefore, specify the distance between the tool reference position and
the center of the tool holder for each tool in the tool registering screen
for multiple–tool as the Y–axis compensation.
