4. DETAILS OF AUTOMATIC
AND NOTES ON ITS USE
In automatic process determination, the tool to be used is selected from
tooling information and tool data. First the tooling information is
searched to select the tool. If the tool is not found in tooling information,
the tool is then selected from tool data.
In tool selection, the process type (KP) is referenced for a turning tool and
the tool type (TP) is referenced for a milling tool. KP or TP is registered
for each tool in tooling information or tool data. Set the value of KP for
turning tools and TP for milling tools before executing the automatic
process determination function.
If the tool is not found in either tooling information or tool data,
processing stops on the tool setting screen so the operator can manually
select the tool.
