2. CONVERSATIONAL AUTOMATIC
CONVERSATIONAL AUTOMATIC PROGRAMMING FUNCTION
(1)The NC data thus produced automatically by Symbolic FAPT are not
directly used for machining, but they are once loaded to the machining
(2)The automatic programming unit is not capable of storing various
information of machine tools and machine control unit.
Note that control information of machine tools can be processed only
in machine control unit.
(3)The machining information can be input to CNC by the following two
(a) Method of loading automatic programming results into the
machining memory after automatic programming has been made
by using the Symbolic FAPT. This is a standard method, which can
be used without any knowledge on NC tape format.
(b)Method of inputting the machining information into the machining
memory of the machine control unit by MDI operation.
Since this operation is the same as in NC unit for ordinary MDI
input, you are requested to be familiar with NC tape format, etc.
