11.1.1 Error handling in cycles
11.1.2 Overview of cycle alarms
If an illegal status is recognized in the cycles an alarm is generated
and machining aborted.
Alarms 61000 to 62999 are generated in the cycles. The deletion
criterion for this range is NC_RESET. This aborts block preparation in
the NC. The error text that is displayed together with the alarm number
gives more detailed information about the cause of the fault.
The error numbers are classified as follows:
• X=0 General cycle alarms
• X=1 Deep hole drilling cycle alarms
• X=6 Turning cycle alarms
The table below lists all the errors that occur in the cycles, where they occur and
how they can be remedied.
"First drilling depth
"Thread pitch change
causes undefined thread"
"Tool width incorrectly
"Active tool violates
Either different values must be entered
for the reference plane and return plane
for incremental definition of the depth or
an absolute value must be entered for
First drilling depth is not compatible with
total drilling depth.
Check thread geometry.
Grooving tool is larger than program-
med groove width
Contour violation in relief cut elements
caused by the clearance angle of the
tool used, i.e. use a different tool or
check the programmed contour
Illegal relief cut element detected
