14. FUNCTIONS TO SIMPLIFY
nx: The number of products in the X axial direction (Note)
ny: The number of products in the Y axial direction (Note)
Product part is not counted.
After command of G98, specify machining commands on the lower left
product part ( in Fig. 14.5.1 (a)) using the macro function (specify the
machining commands between address word U and V).
In the multi-piece machining function, if a set of machining commands
corresponding to a single tool is executed continuously on the all product
parts, the tool change count is decreased so that the time required for full
machining on a material sheet can be considerably decreased. The
following illustrates this.
Fig. 14.5.1 (b)
Let the following four types of tools be used to punch products for one
sheet, as shown in Fig. 14.5.1 (b).
