M7-(M) Auto Cutoff Program. The previous machines used a M98P9000 to do this.
I recommend continuing to use O9000 if previous machines are used.

Both the M7 and the M98P9000 Auto cutoff program do the same thing. If you have earlier model machines that use the O9000 program than maybe continue using it for program compatibility. The M7 uses data entered on the Custom 2 screen for the Auto cutoff. The Cutoff tool is confirmed to be be called, and the current position of the tool is checked to be less than X0(typically X-.04). If the tool is in the correct position then it skips the auto cutoff program. If the tool is not less than X0, then it performs a auto cutoff, using the speeds and feeds for the O9000 program or the Custom 2 screen. Then the sub program ends and continues the main program
Note that the speeds and feeds must be changed to each material being used.
