C–AXIS FAPT FUNCTION
1. PART FIGURE DEFINITION
As shown in Fig. 1.5 (a), a program which used C–axis machining to
machine (cut, drill, etc.) the same area of the workpiece twice can be
Fig. 1.5 (a)
To execute this function, the system references the following
0: Does not set any machining plane value.
1: Sets a machining plane value.
0: Performs feed operation in the safety
mode (mode 1).
1: Performs feed operation in the efficiency
mode (mode 2).
(2)Part figure definition
1) When a C–axis machining figure is entered, the system prompts the
operator to input the Z or X plane to be machined. In the example
shown in Fig. 1.5 (a), plane Z = a is entered as the machining plane.
2) If no data is input in response to the prompt (Z = undefined), as with
the conventional system, a turning part figure is assumed as the
machining plane, and the C–axis machining figure is created. In
Fig. 1.5 (a), the machining plane is Z = b.
3) The prompt for the machining plane can be skipped by parameter
setting. If it is skipped, the turning part figure is used as the
