Life counting is performed for a tool in the specified tool
group when M06 is specified next.
Life counting is
performed when a
tool in the tool
group specified in
the same block as

Remarks
If a T command
(return tool group)

alarm (PS0442) is
issued (when bit 6

Normally, when a tool group
number is specified by itself, type B

the tool group number is specified
by itself as type C
When only M06 is
specified, P/S
alarm No. 0440 is
issued.

Also in these functions, the compensation amount selected by tool life
management is used for compensation.

tool is selected, the new tool selection signal is
output.
