OPERATION BY Symbolic FAPT
4. SUB CYCLE FUNCTION
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,
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.
