Please inform the authorized personnel/service department. Check the following points in turn:

1.    Is the machine in working order? That is, has the alarm been tripped by a sluggish axis, tool breakage or collision?

2.    If the machine is in working order, reduce the velocity or improve the controller setting.

3.    Possibly increase the size of the tunnel and monitor errors via analog output in order to ascertain the cause.
