3. CHANGING THE NUMBER OF
CHANGING THE NUMBER OF REGISTERED TOOLS
When the C–axis option or Y–axis option is provided, the ratio of the
registered number of turning tools to milling tools can be changed.
(1)Changing the number of tools
In response to “REQUEST =”, enter TFING “INPUT.”
Then, enter the ratio of turning tools to C–axis tools. The current ratio
is displayed. To leave it unchanged, enter 0. In response to
“EXECUTION =”, enter a value from 0 to 4. (If only INPUT is
entered, the system does not accept it.)
INITIALIZE TOOL DATA
CURRENT TOOL MAP: 1 (200–100)
EXECUTION = (1:200–100 2:150–150 3:100–200 4:50–250 0:NO)
If 0 is entered, the current setting is left unchanged.
If 1 is entered, 200 turning tools and 100 milling tools are registered (2:1).
If 2 is entered, 150 turning tools and 150 milling tools are registered (1:1).
If 3 is entered, 100 turning tools and 200 milling tools are registered (1:2).
If 4 is entered, 50 turning tools and 250 milling tools are registered (1:5).
The number of turning tools and the number of milling tools in both
main memory and submemory are initialized to the standard data of
the new ratio.
In each case above the total number of registered tools is 300.
(2)Tool data compatibility
Tool data tape punched out before the tool ratio is changed can be read
after the tool ratio is changed. In this case, however, the data for the
turning tools and milling tools is read starting at the beginning of the
respective data. So, note that some data in ignored.
When tool data is output, data for any tool is not ignored, as usual.
