c axis work shift
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.
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.
In your work coordinate does it show "C"
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
This will depend on how many coordinate axis you have listed.
