You may need to review the Supercontrol manual. If you are trying to move a part that normally runs on the X table to the U table you will need to establish an new Fixture Offset that contains the U & Y position (not the X &Y). After that, you call the axis redirect command (in your case G26XU). At the next index move the machine should relocate to the U table. At the end of your cut sequence on the U table, call a G27 to cancel the axis redirect before sending the machine home. It is IMPORTANT to call the offset poistion before calling the axis redirect.

Hope this helps!
