Program Continuation:

Channel %1 block %2 path is parallel to tool orientation

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

In a block with spline or polynomial interpolation, the corrected path runs in at least one point parallel to the tool orientation, i.e. the path has a tangent perpendicular to the compensation plane.

Straight lines running parallel to the tool orientation are permissible, as well as circles, with a circle plane that is perpendicular to the compensation plane (application in smooth retraction from a groove).

-    Correction block is reorganized.

-    Local alarm reaction.

-    Interface signals are set.

-    Alarm display.

-    NC Stop on alarm at block end.

Do not use splines or polynomials when writing the contour section, but straight lines and circles instead. Divide up the tool piece geometry and deselect the cutter radius compensation between the various sections.

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