Thread: c axis work shift

  1. #1

    Default c axis work shift

    Hi,

    I'm using a 21I controller on a lathe with live tooling.

    We stick our z axis work shift in some of our codes (parameter #2601). I was wondering if there is a similar parameter for a c - axis work shift?

    Thanks for any help.

    Dan,

    1) C-Axis is the living tool or the spindle ???
    2) Using system variable #2601 you modify only the tool geometry to shift the Z axis.

    Parameter number #2601 in this control is listed as a workpiece coordinate shift. In the operators manual it is listed like this:

    Workpiece coordinate system shift amount:
    x axis: #2501
    z axis #2601

    When I put a value for #2601 it is inserted into the z axis workshift.

    I'm looking for a similar parameter number for the c axis.

    Thanks,

    Dan

    In your work coordinate does it show "C"
    X axis
    Z axis
    C axis??
    If it is listed they usually go in order. Try #2701.

    Or does C show up in your woork coordinates?
    An example of your work coordinates lets say G55
    X=#5221
    Y=#5222
    Z=#5223
    C=#5224

    This will depend on how many coordinate axis you have listed.
