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 the stroke limits, data in memory can
be used to define an area which tools cannot enter.
Machine zero point
Specify these distances.
Tools cannot enter this area. The area is specified by data in memory or
Besides strokes defined with limit switches, the operator can define an
area which the tool cannot enter using a program or data in memory (see
Section III–11). This function is called stroke check.
