The workpiece-coordinate-system is a Cartesian coordinate-system whose origin is within the work piece or at a corner of the workpiece.

Advantages of measuring the base :

  1. Thereby you can determine a specific point on the pallet, the clamping table or the workpiece. To these points all future teach-points can refer to. In the program mode, you now have the option to move the base or to rotate it. Automatically all operation points will be adapted.
  2. If there are several workpieces on the pallet, it is sufficient to know the workpiece geometry of one workpiece. Only the zero point of a new pallet has to determined.
