the tool cannot be positioned to the end point, but is instead moved
away from the end point by the compensation vector.
- Start of cutter compensation (start-up)
If a block satisfying all the conditions listed below is executed in cancel
mode, the machine is placed in cutter compensation mode. This
operation is referred to as start-up.
(1) G41 or G42 is specified. Alternatively, G41 or G42 has already
been specified, and G41 or G42 mode has already been set.
(2) 0 < cutter compensation number maximum compensation
(3) Positioning (G00) or linear interpolation (G01) mode is set.
(4) A command specifying a non-zero amount of travel is specified
for an axis on the compensation plane. (This applies to types
other than start-up type C.)
If start-up is specified in a mode such as the circular interpolation (G02
or G03) mode, an alarm (PS0270) is issued.
As indicated below, three types of start-up operations are supported:
type A, type B, and type C. The user can choose from these three types
by setting bit 0 (CSU) of parameter No. 6001 and bit 7 (CSC) of
parameter No. 6003. However, these three types produce no difference
when the tool moves around an inner corner.
Fig.14.4.1 (a) Start-up/Cancel Operation
CSC CSU Type Operation
0 0 Type A
A compensation vector perpendicular to the block after start-up or
perpendicular to the block before cancellation is output.
0 1 Type B
A compensation vector perpendicular to the start-up block or
cancellation block, and an intersection vector are output.
1 0 Type C
When the start-up block or cancellation block specifies no movement,
the tool is shifted by the cutter compensation value in the direction
