ANIMATED SIMULATION FUNCTION II
(1)Outputting an M code for switching between C– and Y–axis
When using the new animated simulation function with 16–TC CAP
II, 16i–TA CAP II, and Symbol CAPi T, M codes are required to
switch between the animated simulation screens for turning, C–axis
machining, C–axis cylindrical grooving, and Y–axis machining.
Define an MTF function table so that the M codes are output before
the tool change command for each machining process.
Specify function codes in those MTF function tables to be referenced
at the start or end of each C–axis–related process, as described below,
such that the M code indicated by the M code number for the start of
C–axis machining or cylindrical grooving, which is set using system
parameters, is output.
For turning and Y–axis machining, define each existing function table
at the start of machining, such that the corresponding M codes are
Assume that an M code for switching to the C–axis animated
simulation screen is to be output at the start of C–axis machining.
1. Set system parameter No. 741 to 22.
2. When C–axis machining is executed at one time, specify the
following function codes in MTF No. 2200. To switch to the
C–axis animated simulation screen for each C–axis machining
process, specify the following function code in MTF Nos. 2220 to
Start of C–axis center drilling
NO.2220 = 0168, 0100, 0004, 0000, 0000, 0000
This setting outputs an M code block, ‘M22,’ used to switch to the
C–axis animated screen at the start of C–axis center drilling.
