You can use Tool Center Point Control (TCPC) and Dynamic Work Offsets (DWO) if your rotary configuration is correct, and you have correctly set Machine Rotary Zero Point (MRZP) settings (255-257). Refer to page UMC G234 for more information about TCPC. Refer to UMC G254 for more information about DWO.

note: To use Tool Center Point Control (TCPC) and Dynamic Work Offsets (DWO), your axis definitions and rotary installation must match the ANSI standard, where the A, B, and C Axes each rotate about the X, Y, and Z Axes, respectively. When you activate TCPC/DWO, you must confirm that your configuration is correct.
  1. On the Rotary page, press F4.

    The Confirm TCPC/DWO Configuration pop-up window appears.

    Confirm TCPC/DWO Configuration Pop-up Window. [1] A- and C-Axis Configuration, [2] B- and C-Axis Configuration

  2. If your rotary configuration matches the diagram, press ENTER to confirm so. This activates TCPC/DWO.

    If your configuration does not match the diagram, you must adjust it to match; for example, you may need to redefine the axis letters or change the rotary unit’s orientation.

  3. After you activate TCPC/DWO, press F3 to save the rotary configuration. If you do not save the configuration, then TCPC/DWO is deactivated when you turn off the machine.
