    Default Mazak QT15 X-Axis Offset

    I just set up a Mazak QT15 with Mazatrol T2 controls and everything is working good.
    The only problem is that the X-Axis is offset by 0.076" (Meaning that with offsets set at 0, and machining a 1.0" diameter, it machines a 0.924" diameter).
    I have machined a 2" long section of rod and it machines consistently.

    The only way I have found to get it to machine correctly is to use the tool offset or tool compensation under the tool file for each tool.

    I'm sure there is a way to adjust the X-Axis, but have not found a way to do it. (Maybe a parameter setting)
    Does anybody know how to adjust the X-Axis besides using the tool offset or compensation?

    Thank you for your help

    How are you setting your tools? Maybe your tool eye position parameter is wrong.

    I'm using the tool setter.
    The tool setter arm drops down and I touch off on the Z and the X.

    Yes, the tool eye position parameter may be wrong.
    Looks like parameter M39 (Tool-edge measurement sensor positions X-Axis: Diameter)
    I didn't think of that. I'll check into it.

    Thank you.

    That was it.
    I changed the M39 parameter and it is now within .001 with no offsets.
    Thank you
