What causes error 006 alarm on Lexium 23 ?

The Alarm error 006 is caused when the servo motor and or servo drive are overloaded.
The drive monitors the motor total torque percentage and in the event that the motor torque exceeds 100% of the maximum possible torque then alarm message 006 is displayed on the drive.

Is the drive and motor combination properly sized for the application? Perhaps a higher capacity drive and motor are required.

Has the machine mechanics changed?  If there is additional load on the drive and motor as a result of a faulty mechanical system then alarm 006 can occur.
Check the machine mechanics to insure there are no issues causing an additional frictional load.
