Looks like your drawing in ArtCAM may be too big, either that or you need to do some scaling. Afraid I am not familiar with  ArtCAM so cant really advise :(

If the G00 Y-40 is the first move in the G-code, then it sounds like your part is set up in ArtCam 40 units on the Y axis from zero origin.  If that's the case, when you zero the DRO's in Mach and run the part, then the first move would be a rapid move to where the part is oriented in ArtCam.
