4. SUB CYCLE FUNCTION
OPERATION BY Symbolic FAPT
After process editing, check the editing results. If edits are
made incorrectly, the tool may collide with the workpiece
and/or machine, or forced machining may occur, possibly
causing damage to the machine and/or tool itself, or injury
to the user.
The auxiliary machining process is also edited as well as other machining
process. However, when an auxiliary machining is selected by S CODE
SELECT, no data is displayed under spindle speed column.
Actually control of the S code depends on the auxiliary machining macro
prepared by MTB.
(1)Method for outputting the same auxiliary machining command to both
When outputting the same auxiliary machining command to both tool
posts, for example, for transferring the workpiece, use the following
a) Define the auxiliary machining process for individual tool posts
during machining definition.
b) On the process edit screen, specify simultaneous operations, using
the [HEAD UP] and [HEAD DOWN] soft keys.
This procedure causes the same auxiliary machining command to
be output to the program of each tool post. It also causes the same
wait M code to be output before and after the auxiliary machining
