    Default What does the TEACH and OFFSET MEASUREMENT buttons do ??

    Hi guys,

    Was hoping to find out more about the TEACH and OFFSET MEASUREMENT buttons on the Fanuc OM controller for my Makino mill.

    I've tried for Work Offset and Tool Offset setting but they don't seem to do anything.

    Am I missing something here ?

    Thanks

    I believe one stores the position of the tool so it can be written into the offset page and perhaps the other one is used to actually write the value?

    I've never used a Fanuc that old though but I know how frustrating it is to touch off a tool and forget to press the measure button before jogging away and trying to set the value.
