APPLY TOOL LENGTH OFFSET (G43)
To apply a tool length offset from a stored value in the tool table, program: G43 H~
- H~ is the tool number associated with the length offset to be applied.
NOTE: Generally speaking, the value of the H~ word should match the active tool number (T~ word).
It’s okay to program using the same offset already in use, or to program without a tool length offset (if none is currently being used).
It’s an error if:
- The H number is not an integer
- The H number is negative
- The H number is not a valid tool number
