What Happens When the Cut Length is Adjusted Without a Corresponding Adjustment to the Carriage Position

In a situation where the part shape qualifies and the length on end A qualifies, but the length at end B is LONG, then it is usually still necessary to send a correction to the bender after the user changes the Cut Length on the stick.

The reason is because reducing the cut length will pull the part back into the bender by the amount of the change when loading the part into the collet.

So, if cut length is changed to adjust and correct any part of the tube shape that is not end A, then the starting carriage location must also change. In this case, it must move forward more than it did in the previous set up (when the cut length was longer).
