(Common to Power Mate i–D and –H)
When machining is actually started, it is necessary to rotate the spindle
(in the case of Power Mate i–D/D2), and feed coolant. For this purpose,
on–off operations of spindle motor (in the case of Power Mate i–D/D2)
and coolant valve should be controlled (See II–10).
The function of specifying the on–off operations of the components of the
machine is called the miscellaneous function. In general, the function is
specified by an M code.
For example, when M03 is specified, the spindle is rotated clockwise at
the specified spindle speed in the case of Power Mate i–D/D2.
