2. MULTIPATH CONTROL

During automatic operation in the multipath mode, programs for different
paths run simultaneously, but independently. These programs can be
made to wait for others, and therefore it is possible to operate the machine
in synchronous manner. A path specified to wait begins to operate when
a wait condition in the associated path is satisfied.
The following example loads a workpiece from a belt conveyer to a
machine tool and unloads it from the machine tool. The loader waits until
the belt conveyer and table operate to place a workpiece at a specified
position.
