3. EXECUTION OF
No check of the validity of a machining sequence is made.
Therefore, even when a machining sequence specified in
the machining definition includes any invalid process steps
(inner surface machining without drilling, or finishing before
roughing, for example), the entire machining sequence is
reflected on the prepared NC data. When defining
machining, check the specified machining sequence.
Failure to specify a valid machining sequence may result in
the tool colliding with the workpiece and/or machine, or
forced machining occurring, possibly causing damage to
the machine and/or tool itself, or injury to the user.
When the machining definition soft key (No.4) is pressed on the
initial screen, the following screen appears. On this screen, the manual
machining definition item and the automatic process determination
function can be selected.

To select a machining type, press the soft key corresponding to a desired
major category. The detailed machining menu is then displayed. From
the menu, select the desired machining type.
