AUTOMATIC PROCESS
DETERMINATION FUNCTION
637
CAUTION
1 For drilling, grooving, and residual machining, both tooling
information and tool data are searched for the tool, and the
optimum tool (the largest tool which can be used) is
selected. For other processes, the tool which is found first
is used. If the selected tool is not a desired one, turn the
manual flag on and select the tool manually, or change the
tool after all processes are determined.
2 If the tool is selected from tool data, the tool is automatically
added to tooling information. The data items for the added
tool are automatically set as follows: The tool selection
number (TN) is set to the smallest unused number. The tool
compensation number (TM) is set to the same number as
the tool selection number. For the other data related to
mounting, the same data as that in tool data is used.
Automatic process determination therefore cannot operate
correctly if the tool data related to mounting is incorrect.
3 When the tool is selected from tooling information, the turret
to be used is automatically selected from tooling data if
there are two or more turrets. When the tool is selected from
tool data, the turret number is normally set to 1. To set the
turret number to 2, turn on the manual input flag and
manually enter the turret number or change the turret
number after all processes are determined. When balance
cutting is performed, the turret number for the second tool
is automatically set to 2 even when the tool is selected from
tool data.
4 The tool can be selected only from tooling information or
from tool data by changing the following setting data:
