FANUC Series 16/18/160/180-Model C for Lathe Operator Manual

1 The function of an CNC machine tool system depends not
only on the CNC, but on the combination of the machine
tool, its magnetic cabinet, the servo system, the CNC, the
operator’s panels, etc. It is too difficult to describe the
function, programming, and operation relating to all
combinations. This manual generally describes these from
the stand–point of the CNC. So, for details on a particular
CNC machine tool, refer to the manual issued by the
machine tool builder, which should take precedence over
this manual.
2 Headings are placed in the left margin so that the reader can
easily access necessary information. When locating the
necessary information, the reader can save time by
searching though these headings.
3 Machining programs, parameters, variables, etc. are stored
in the CNC unit internal non–volatile memory. In general,
these contents are not lost by the switching ON/OFF of the
power. However, it is possible that a state can occur where
precious data stored in the non–volatile memory has to be
deleted, because of deletions from a maloperation, or by a
failure restoration. In order to restore rapidly when this kind
of mishap occurs, it is recommended that you create a copy
of the various kinds of data beforehand.
4 This manual describes as many reasonable variations in
equipment usage as possible. It cannot address every
combination of features, options and commands that
should not be attempted.
If a particular combination of operations is not described, it
should not be attempted.
