(3) TAPE mode
(2) MEM mode
Tool life data area
(1) Load the program for tool life management in the EDIT mode, as with
an ordinary CNC tape.
The program will be registered in the part program memory and will
be made ready for display and editing.
(2) Perform a cycle start operation in the MEM mode to run the program.
The data will be stored in the tool life data area of the memory; at the
same time, the already existing tool life data of all groups will be
cancelled and the life counters will be cleared. Data once stored is not
erased by turning the power off.
(3) Executing a cycle start operation in the TAPE mode instead of the
operation of (1), stores the program contents directly onto the tool life
data area. In this case, however, display and editing cannot be done as
in (1). TAPE mode is not always prepared according to the machine
