12. GRAPHICS FUNCTION
⋅ GRAPHIC CENTER
Set the coordinate value on the workpiece coordinate system at
1 When MAX. and MIN. of RANGE are set, the values will be
set automatically once drawing is executed
2 When setting the graphics range with the graphics
parameters for the magnification and screen center
coordinates, do not set the parameters for the maximum
and minimum values afterward. Only the parameters set
last are effective.
⋅ PROGRAM STOP
Set the sequence No. of the end block when necessary to partially
This value is automatically cancelled and set to –1 once drawing is
⋅ AUTO ERASE
1 : Erase the previous drawing automatically when the automatic
operation is started under reset condition.
2 : Not erase automatically.
Since the graphic drawing is done when coordinate value is renewed
during automatic operation, etc., it is necessary to start the program by
automatic operation. To execute drawing without moving the machine,
therefore, enter the machine lock state.
When the AUTO operation is started under reset condition, the program
is executed after deleting the previous drawing automatically (Automatic
deleting=1). It is possible not to delete the previous drawing by graphic
parameter (Automatic deleting=0).
When necessary to display a part of a program, search the starting block
to be drawn by the sequence No. search, and set the sequence No. of the
end block to the PROGRAM STOP N= of the graphic parameter before
starting the program under cycle operation mode.
The tool path is shown with a dashed line (
) for rapid traverse and
with a solid line (
) for cutting feed.
In case the feed rate is considerably high, drawing may not be executed
correctly, decrease the speed by dry–run, etc. to execute drawing.
For the two–path lathe control, two paths can not be displayed at the same
