CAUTION
When bits 0 or 1 of parameter GS1,GS2 No.7400 is
changed, re-register tool life management data with
the G10L3 command (for registering and deleting
data for all groups).
Otherwise, new data pairs cannot be set.
- Tool number
A tool number is specified using a T code. A number of up to eight
digits (99999999) can be specified.
- Tool offset specification code
Two types of tool offset specification codes are used: H code (for tool
length compensation) and D code (for cutter compensation). A number
not exceeding three digits (999) can be specified as a tool offset
specification code, but a specified number must not exceed the number
of tool offsets usable with the CNC.
NOTE
When codes specifying tool offset values are not
used, registration can be omitted.
- Tool life value
Refer to II-10.2.2 and II-10.2.4.
