Program Continuation:

Channel %1 block %2 tool management: no tool available in tool group %3

%1 = Channel number %2 = Block number, label %3 = String (identifier)

The specified tool group does not contain a tool which is ready for use and could be used for tool change. It is possible that all of the tools in question have been set to the 'Disabled' state by the tool monitoring function. The alarm can occur for example in conjunction with the alarm 14710 (error on INIT block generation). In this specific situation, NCK attempts to replace the disabled tool located on the spindle with an available replacement tool (which does not exist in this error condition).

The user must resolve this conflict, for example, by removing the tool located on the spindle from the spindle by issuing a movement command (e.g. through MMC operation).

-    Correction block is reorganized.

-    Interface signals are set.

-    Alarm display.

Ensure that the specified tool group contains a tool that is ready for use when tool change is requested.

This can be achieved, for example, by replacing disabled tools, or by releasing a disabled tool manually.

If an alarm occurs on programming TCA: Has the duplo number been programmed >0? Check whether the tool data are correctly defined. Have all intended tools in the group been defined/loaded with the specified identifier?

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