probing Z axis

Modified on Tue, 07 Dec 2021 at 12:16 PM

to achieve your Z axis workplace coordinate please follow the instructions below.

1. make sure the tool in your spindle is calibrated to the fixed calibrator on your machine. 

- ( for ATC machines you will need to go to your F4 tools and offsets page double click on the tool number you wish to calibrate and select auto tool zero followed by the save button once the sequence is complete.) 

- for Manual machines this is done when homing the machine. 

2. go to your F3 jog page.

3. Jog your machine over your material and locate your probe under the lowest cutting edge of your tool whilst on top of your material or spoil board ( depending on how you program your cuts. )

4. press the probing button ( located to the right of your Z+ and Z- buttons) 

5. a pop up window will appear in the center of your screen. you will need to select the probe sequence button located in the center of the nine button array with the single red dot and no yellow lines.
