Program Continuation:

Channel %1 tool management: remove manual tool %3 from spindle/toolholder %2

%1 = Channel number

%2 = Toolholder number (spindle number)

%3 = Tool identifier

Indicates that the specified manual tool must be removed from the specified toolholder or spindle before the program is continued. A manual tool is a tool whose data are known to the NCK but which is not assigned to a magazine location and is thus not fully accessible to the NCK, and usually also to the machine, for an automatic tool change.

- Alarm display.

Make sure that the specified tool is removed from the toolholder. The alarm is cleared automatically after PLC acknowledgement of the tool change on command. Manual tools can only be used efficiently if this is supported by the PLC program.

Alarm display showing cause of alarm disappears. No further operator action necessary.
