ANIMATED SIMULATION FUNCTION B
C–axis side drilling
During turning simulation, following interference is being monitored.
And if interference is detected, alam is indicated on the screen.
1) Interference between tool and chuck or tailstock.
2) Interference between tools of turret 1 and turret 2. (In case of two path
Interference is not checked during rapid traverse movement.
Direction of X–axis in the X–Z side view is determined in accordance
with the setting of the Drawing Format. Upward direction of X–axis in
the X–C front view always corresponds to the positive direction of
X–axsis, regardless of the setting of the Drawing Format.
In case of simulating 2–paths lathe, machining processes are simulated on
the screen as follows.
In the X–Z side view, tools of both turret 1 and turret 2 are drawn for both
turning and C–axis machining simulation. If simultaneous cutting by
both turret 1 and turret 2 tools, which can be programmed for only turning
process, is simulated, both turret 1 and turret 2 tools in this view move
In the X–C front view, the motion of either one of the tools which is now
cutting the workpiece is simulated as described in section 2.1.5, only
while C–axis machining process. While turning process, no tool motion
is simulated in this view.
Refer to section 2.3, System Parameter, for the position of the turrets
which are drawn on the screen during the simulation.
