15. LASER FUNCTION
The approach feed mode is ON , if the gap control feed signal is turned
on when the W-axis tracing control function is added.
The signal from the gap sennsor is monitored in approach feed mode.
If the signal from the sensor is 0 or more (too close to the workpiece), the
jog feed in the X, Y and Z directions and the nozzle direction is stopped.
Procedure for approach feed function
1 Turn on the approach feed signal (G225#1 ZAPR).
2 The jog feed is stopped automatically, if the nozzle is too close to the
workpiece when the nozzle is feeded in jog mode.
3 To release the machine from stopped status, set the approach feed
signal to 0 and the jog feed select signal to 0, then select the approach
feed function again.
