Channel %1 axis %2 cannot be traversed as geometry axis


%1 = Channel number

%2 = Axis name


The axis is currently not in "Geometry axis" state. Therefore, it cannot be traversed in

JOG mode as geometry axis.

If the abbreviation WCS (workpiece coordinate system) is displayed in the "Position" screen, then only the geometry axes can be traversed by means of the direction keys! (MCS ... Machine coordinate system; all machine axes can now be traversed by using the direction keys on the machine control panel).



- Alarm display.

Check the operating steps to establish whether geometry axes really must be traversed, otherwise switch over to the machine axes by activating the "WCS/MCS" key on the machine control panel.

Program Continuation:

Clear alarm with the Delete key or NC START.
