2. CAUTIONS FOR USING
VARIOUS FUNCTIONS AND
PRECAUTIONS OF Symbolic FAPT
(2)Operation required when parameter No.0104 is 0.
(a) If the turret turning position was changed, the cutting start position
of the entire process is recalculated from the previous turret turning
position and tool length (XS, ZS). When “process definition” or
“NC data preparation” is selected, recalculation is executed
(b)Return either Z axis or X axis only to the turret turning position.
When Z axis only is returned to the turret turning position
D Keep the X axis undefined at the turret turning position.
D Keep the X axis undefined at the cutting start position in the second
and higher process. (Define the X axis in the first process.)
Return the Z axis only to the turret turning position.
If you desire to return the X axis only, read Z as X, while read X as Z in
the above example.
If the machine home position is specified when the X axis
start position in the first process is undefined, the machine
home position value is used as the first cutting start X axis
value; provided that the undefinition of the machine home
position causes an error.
The start point cannot be undefined, if the software key
“CORRECTION & OUTPUT” of menu No.4 “PROCESS
DEFINITION” is selected.
If the division direction (direction which intersects the Z axis) at the
bottom end of the end face is specified downward when the parts figure
is perforated, the tool path is presently prepared up to the position
exceeding the Z axis by a clearance (CX).
