OPERATION3. MANUAL OPERATION
In the incremental (INC) mode, pressing a feed axis and direction
selection switch on the machine operator’s panel moves the nozzle one
step along the selected axis in the selected direction. The minimum
distance the nozzle is moved is the least input increment. Each step can
be 10, 100, or 1000 times the least input increment.
This mode is effective when a manual pulse generator is not
Each time a switch is

Procedure for Incremental Feed
1 Press the INC switch, one of the mode selection switches.
2 Select the distance to be moved for each step with the
3 Press the feed axis and direction selection switch corresponding to
the axis and direction the nozzle is to be moved. Each time a
switch is pressed, the nozzle moves one step. The feedrate is the
same as the jog feedrate.
4 Pressing the rapid traverse switch while pressing a feed axis and
direction selection switch moves the nozzle at the rapid traverse rate.
Rapid traverse override by the rapid traverse override switch is
effective during rapid traverse.
The above is an example. Refer to the appropriate manual provided
by the machine nozzle builder for the actual operations.
