After you define a rotary unit’s axes in your machine control, you can set the tool change offset. This defines axis positions that put the rotary platter perpendicular to its defined axis.

  1. In Handle Jog mode, jog the axes to make the platter face perpendicular to its defined axis. Use an indicator to verify perpendicularity.
  2. Press Setting and select the Rotary tab.
  3. Highlight one of the axes in the Current Rotary Selections table.
  4. Press INSERT to define the current axis position as the tool change offset position.
  5. Type a name for your custom configuration, if prompted. You will see a prompt for a configuration name only when you make changes to a base configuration for the first time. Otherwise, the control saves your changes to the current custom configuration.
