Unique selling points

1.Easy setting by one-touch operation

When Retraction Cycle is used in setups such as tool setting and measuring offset, just pressing the button on the operation panel retracts the X- and Y-axis safely to their zero points outside the work envelope to secure a work space. Since the operation is completed with one touch, human errors such as operation errors and collision of tools can be prevented.


Operators can change the setting of the retract position and the order of the axes to be retracted according to the setup operation. The retract position on the X- and Y-axis can be selected from the first zero point or the second zero point in accordance with the setup to ensure an optimum working space.
