As we begin 2021, we have found ourselves in a situation where our lead-times have substantially increased due to COVID-19 pandemic-related issues.
Those issues combined with high demand and heavy shipping volume is resulting in a longer than normal delivery timeframes for many Tormach machines and accessories.
We are working diligently to resolve these issues and look forward to bringing our lead-times back to normal. Unfortunately, this is going to take some time.
As of now, we anticipate that these lead times will continue into the second quarter. We appreciate your patience during this time.

ABSOLUTE COORDINATES (G53)

For rapid linear motion to a point expressed in absolute coordinates, program: G01 G53 X~ Y~ Z~ (or use with G00 instead of G01)

All the axis words are optional, except that at least one must be used. The G00 or G01 is optional if it is in the current motion mode. G53 isn’t modal, and must be programmed on each line on which it is intended to be active. This produces coordinated linear motion to the programmed point. If G01 is active, the speed of motion is the current feed rate (or slower if the mill won’t go that fast). If G00 is active, the speed of motion is the current traverse rate (or slower if the mill won’t go that fast).

TROUBLESHOOTING

It’s an error if:

  • G53 is used without G00 or G01 being active
  • G53 is used while cutter radius compensation is on
