Due to high demand and worldwide supply chain issues, we are experiencing longer than normal delivery time frames for many Tormach machines and accessories. We appreciate your patience during this time.
Note: The ONLY way to secure a machine that is currently on backorder is to place an order for one. You may place a deposit to hold your spot in line for machines arriving. Without an order, any dates presented on our website are subject to change with demand.

LINEAR MOTION AT FEED RATE (G01)

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.

CONDITIONS

The motion differs if:

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

TROUBLESHOOTING

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
