4. AUTOMATIC OPERATION
In cases such as when tool movement along an axis is stopped by feed hold
during automatic operation so that manual intervention can be used to
replace the tool: When automatic operation is restarted, this function
returns the tool to the position where manual intervention was started.
To use the conventional program restart function and tool withdrawal and

In manual absolute off mode, the tool does not return to the stop position,
but instead operates according to the manual absolute on/off function.

If a reset occurs or an alarm is issued during manual intervention or the
return operation, this function is cancelled.
This function can be used in the MDI mode as well.
This function is enabled only when the automatic operation hold LED is
on. When there is no travel distance remaining, this function has no effect
even if a feed hold stop is performed with the automatic operation hold
signal *SP (bit 5 of G008).
When the tool is replaced using manual intervention for a reason such as
damage, the tool movement cannot be restarted by a changed offset in the
middle of the interrupted block.
When performing manual intervention, never use the machine lock,
mirror image, or scaling functions.
