Program Continuation:

Channel %1 block %2 selection of the tool radius compensation via KONT not possible at the current starting point

%1 = Channel number %2 = Block number, label

When activating the cutter radius compensation with KONT the starting point of the approach block is within the compensation circle and therefore already violates the contour.

If the cutter radius compensation is selected with G41/G42, the approach behavior (NORM or KONT) determines the compensation movement if the present actual position is behind the contour. With KONT, a circle is drawn with the cutter radius around the programmed initial point (= end point of the approach block). The tangent that passes through the current actual position and does not violate the contour is the approach movement.

If the start point is within the compensation circle around the target point, no tangent passes through this point.

-    Correction block is reorganized.

-    Local alarm reaction.

-    Interface signals are set.

-    Alarm display.

-    NC Stop on alarm at block end.

Place selection of the CRC such that the starting point of the approach movements comes to rest outside of the correction circle around the target point (programmed traversing movements > compensation radius). The following possibilities are available: Selection in the previous block Insert intermediate block Select approach behavior NORM

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