15. COMPENSATION FUNCTION
The range of the offset value is an follows :
Increment system metric system Inch system
IS–B 0 to "999.999 mm 0 to "99.9999 inch
IS–C 0 to "999.9999 mm 0 to "99.99999 inch
The offset value corresponding to the offset number 0 is always 0.
No offset value can be set to offset number 0.
In tool nose radius compensation, the position of the workpiece with
respect to the tool must be specified.
G code Workpiece position Tool path
G40 (Cancel) Moving along the programmed path
G41 Right side Moving on the left side the programmed
G42 Left side Moving on the right side the programmed
The tool is offset to the opposite side of the workpiece.
The imaginary tool nose is
on the programmed path.
Imaginary tool nose
number 1 to 8
