8. DATA INPUT/OUTPUT
A program stored in the memory of the CNC unit is output to a floppy or
Outputting a program
1 Make sure the output device is ready for output.
For the two–path control, select the tool post for which a program to
be output is used with the tool post selection switch.
2 To output to an NC tape, specify the punch code system (ISO or EIA)
using a parameter.
3 Press the EDIT switch on the machine operator’s panel.
4 Press function key
, then the program contents display screen or
program directory screen appears.
5 Press soft key
6 Press the rightmost soft key
7 Enter address O.
8 Enter a program number. If –9999 is entered, all programs stored in
memory are output.
To output multiple programs at one time, enter a range as follows :
Programs No.∆∆∆∆ to No.VVVV are output.
The program library screen displays program numbers in ascending
order when bit 4 (SOR) of parameter No. 3107 is set to 1.
9 Press soft keys
[PUNCH] and [EXEC]
The specified program or programs are output.
When output is conducted to the floppy, the program is output as the new
file after the files existing in the floppy. New files are to be written from
the beginning with making the old files invalid, use the above output
operation after the N0 head searching.
When P/S alarm (No. 86) occurs during program output, the floppy is
restored to the condition before the output.
When program output is conducted after N1 to N9999 head searching, the
new file is output as the designated n–th position. In this case, 1 to n–1
files are effective, but the files after the old n–th one are deleted. If an
alarm occurs during output, only the 1 to n–1 files are restored.
To efficiently use the memory in the cassette or card, output the program
by setting parameter NFD (No. 0101#7,No. 0111#7 or 0121#7) to 1. This
parameter makes the feed is not output, utilizing the memory efficiently.
