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.


For linear motion at feed rate (for cutting or not), program: G01 X~ Y~ Z~ A~ F~

  • X~ is the X-axis coordinate
  • Y~ is the Y-axis coordinate
  • Z~ is the Z-axis coordinate
  • A~ is the A-axis coordinate
  • F~ is the feed rate

This produces coordinated linear motion to the destination point at the current feed rate (or slower, if the mill won’t go that fast). The G01 is optional if the current motion mode is G01.


The motion differs if:

  • Cutter radius compensation is active
  • G53 is programmed on the same line


It’s an error if:

  • All axis words are omitted – The axis words are optional, except that at least one must be used.
  • G10, G28, G30, or G92 appear in the same block
  • No F word is specified
