11. SETTING AND DISPLAYING DATA
The length of the tool can be measured and registered as the tool length
offset value by moving the reference tool and the tool to be measured until
they touch the specified position on the machine.
The tool length can be measured along the X–, Y–, or Z–axis.
Procedure for tool length measurement
1 Use manual operation to move the reference tool until it touches the
specified position on the machine (or workpiece.)
2 Press function key
several times until the current position
display screen with relative coordinates is displayed.

5 Use manual operation to move the tool to be measured until it touches
the same specified position. The difference between the length of the
reference tool and the tool to be measured is displayed in the relative
coordinates on the screen.
6 Move the cursor to the compensation number for the target tool (the
cursor can be moved in the same way as for setting tool compensation
