ANIMATED SIMULATION FUNCTION II
The animated simulation function is used to execute actual machining
simulation by displaying blanks, chuck figures, tailstock figures, and tool
figures on the CRT screen.
When the user selects the screen used for animated simulation and starts
operation of the NC in machine lock mode, the user can view a blank
being cut by the tools that are changed each time a T code is issued.
In addition, the animated simulation function II has the following features
to perform further real simulation.
(1)Turning can be simulated with gradation.
(2)Simulation can be performed by expanding the C–axis cylindrical
(3)The screen is divided into four parts each time the phase angle is
changed during machining of a Y–axis side face. The results of the
previous machining simulation are scrolled.
(4)The user can check the machining path for all the processes from
C–axis machining to Y–axis machining with the three–dimensional
wire frame display.
