Limit switches are installed at the ends of each axis on the machine to
prevent tools from moving beyond the ends.
The range in which tools can move is called the stroke.
Besides strokes defined with limit switches, the operator can define an
area which the tool cannot enter using a program or data in memory.
This function is called stroke check (see Operation II-6.3).
