Program Continuation:

Channel %1 block%2 axis %3 must be geometry axis if tool radius compensation is active

%1 = Channel number %2 = Block number, label %3 = Axis name

This alarm occurs when an axis that is required for tool radius compensation is not a geometry axis. With CUT2DF, the axis can be a positioning axis perpendicular to the machining plane; with all other types of compensation (CUT2DF, CUT3DC, CUT3DF, CUT3DFF), all geometry axes must be operated as such.

-    Correction block is reorganized.

-    Local alarm reaction.

-    Interface signals are set.

-    Alarm display.

-    NC Stop on alarm at block end.

Modify part program.

On selection of G41/42, the axes involved must be known as GEOAX in the channel. It is possible by programming GEOAX() or G91 G0 X0 Y0 in the block prior to G41/42.

Clear alarm with NC START or RESET key and continue the program.
