15. LASER FUNCTION
Edge cutting data groups and power control data groups are provided as
auxiliary data groups.
1. Edge cutting data group
Edge cutting data is used for edge cutting, which is performed to cut a
corner sharply, and for using the startup function, which operates when
contouring is started after piercing. When used, edge cutting data is called
from “Edge cutting select” or “Startup select” of a cutting data group.
For the operations of edge cutting and startup, see Subsection 18.7.3,
“Edge Machining Function”, and Subsection 18.7.4, “Startup Machining
Function”, in Part II, “PROGRAMMING”.
1) Setting items
Data item Setting range Unit
Judge angle for edge 0 to 180 Degree
Piercing power 0 to 9999 W
Piercing frequency 5 to 2000 Hz
Piercing duty 0 to 100 %
Piercing time 0 to 999.999 Sec
Piercing gas press 0 to 9.99 MPa
Piercing gas select 0 to 99
Recovery distance 0 to 99.999 mm
Recovery feedrate 0 to 9999 mm/min
Recovery frequency 5 to 2000 Hz
Recovery duty 0 to 100 %
A group consists of five sets, each consisting of the above items, when
the option for additional cutting condition registration is not provided,
or a group consists of 20 sets when the option for additional cutting
condition registration is provided.
3) Calling method
Data is called indirectly.
In “Edge cutting select” or “Startup select” of cutting data groups, set
edge cutting data numbers from 201 to 205 in advance if the option for
additional cutting condition registration is not provided, or set edge
cutting data numbers from 201 to 220 in advance if the option for
additional cutting condition registration is provided. Then, when
cutting data is read, edge cutting data is called at the same time.
