Unlimited fixture offsets (Fanuc)

Submitted by G. Kilpatric of Nichol McKay.


Use this method to create extra work offsets if your machine is limited to just six (G54 TO G59).

In your main program assign a value to a variable, the example below uses #1,you can have hundreds of individual alterable offsets.


Every coordinate system is G54, it uses the sub program to set the work offset required, when finished it jumps down to the end of the sub program and back into the main machining program.


Make up a table so you can keep track of which work offset is used for what setup/part.

Be careful what variable (#) you use as these maybe used elsewhere for other purposes.

I’ve used this method for over 12 years and it works great!
