FANUC Series 16/18/160/180-Model C Machining Center Operators Manual

PROGRAMMING
22. TWO–PATH CONTROL
FUNCTION
B–62764EN/01
486
The two–path control function is designed for use on a machining center
where two systems are operated independently to simultaneously perform
cutting.
The operations of two path are programmed independently of each other,
and each program is stored in program memory for each path. When
automatic operation is to be performed, each path is activated after
selecting a program for machining with path 1 and a program for
machining with path 2 from the programs stored in program memory for
each path. Then the programs selected for the paths are executed
independently at the same time. When path 1 and path 2 need to wait for
each other during machining, the waiting function is available (Section
22.2)
Just one CRT/MDI is provided for the two paths. Before operation and
display on the CRT/MDI, the path selection signal is used to switch
between the two paths.
