There are five positions that you can set the spindle to move to once a job is completed. This is known as “Parking”.

On the Series 4 Pendant, go to Menu> Configuration> Parking


None: The spindle will remain at its last location when the job is finished.

Z-Up: The spindle will remain at its last location at the end of the file and lift the spindle off the material.

Home: The spindle will move to the current home position that is set in the controller.

Datum: The spindle will move back to the limit switch position on the table.

Z Lift: The spindle will move up to a specified Z Lift position, then go to the current home position; Z lift positioning can be specified under Menu> Configuration> Parking Z Lift
