3. MANUAL OPERATION
In the jog mode, pressing a feed axis and direction selection switch on the
machine operator’s panel continuously moves the tool along the selected
axis in the selected direction.
The jog feedrate is specified in a parameter (No.1423)
The jog feedrate can be adjusted with the jog feedrate override dial.
Pressing the rapid traverse switch moves the tool at the rapid traverse
feedrate (parameter No.1424) regardless of the postiotion of the jog
feedrate override dial. It is called the manual rapid traverse.
Manual operation is allowed for one axis at a time. The Power Mate i–D
can select simultaneously 2 axes and the Power Mate i–H can select
simultaneously 3 axes at a time by parameter JAX (No.1002#0).
While a switch is pressed, the
tool moves in the direction
specified by the switch.
Procedure for Jog Feed
1 Press the jog switch, one of the mode selection switches.
2 Press the feed axis and direction selection switch corresponding to the
axis and direction the tool is to be moved. While the switch is pressed,
the tool moves at the feedrate specified in a parameter (No.1423). The
tool stops when the switch is released.
3 The jog feedrate can be adjusted with the jog feedrate override dial.
4 Pressing the rapid traverse switch while pressing a feed axis and
direction selection switch moves the tool at the rapid traverse rate
while the rapid traverse switch is pressed. Rapid traverse override by
the rapid traverse override switches is effective during rapid traverse.
The above is an example. Refer to the appropriate manual provided
by the machine tool builder for the actual operations.
