What is Sinumerik REPOSition Mode

Siemens Sinumerik
REPOSition stands for reposition. REPOSition is an operating mode of the numerical control. If a tool breaks, or for whatever reason the operator must interrupt program execution and job off of the contour, the tool can be returned to the contour in the REPOSition mode. Following this, the mode can be changed to AUTOmatic and machining resumed.
