Program Continuation:

Channel %1 block %2 curvature radius with variable compensation value too small

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

The current cutter radius compensation (the cutter used) is too large for the programmed path radius.

In a block with variable tool radius compensation, a compensation must be possible either anywhere or nowhere on the contour with the smallest and the largest compensation value from the programmed range. There must be no point on the contour in which the curvature radius is within the variable compensation range.

If the compensation value varies its sign within a block, both sides of the contour are checked, otherwise only the compensation side.

-    Correction block is reorganized.

-    Local alarm reaction.

-    Interface signals are set.

-    Alarm display.

-    NC Stop on alarm at block end.

Use smaller cutters or allow for a part of the cutter radius at the time of contour programming.

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