(c) Setting Tool Data for Caxis Machining
D In setting tool data for Caxis machining process, it is not
necessary to distinguish the turret which the tool is mounted on.
D Refer to chapter VIII. CAXIS FAPT FUNCTION, section
2.1.2 Tool data for Caxis machining of the
CONVERSATIONAL AUTOMATIC PROGRAMMING
FUNCTION FOR LATHE, OPERATORs MANUAL,
B–61804E–2/04, for the settings of tool data for C–axis
machining process.
D When setting tool data for Caxis machining process, you are
prompted to specify the mounting direction of the tool as
follows.
SETTING DIRECTION CP = ( 0: SIDE, 1: FRONT FACE, 2: REAR FACE ). . . . . . . .
Specify CP = 1 for the machining of the portion which is defined
as FS = 0 (FRONT FACE) in the part figure definition step, and
specify CP = 2 for the portion defined as FS = 1 (REAR
FACE)”.
(d)Reversing the Tool Shape
With following operations, a tool shape is automatically reversed
around the X–axis.
1) In case the secondary turret (TL = 2) is specified for a tool;
When a tool management (ID) number is specified in the tool
data window, the registered tool data with the same ID number
is read out of the Tool Data database. If the secondary turret
is specified for this tool at this time, the tool shape in the
database is reversed around the Xaxis and displayed in the
window.
2) When turret number is changed;
When the turret number (TL) is changed in the tool data
window, the tool shape is reversed around the Xaxis in the tool
data window.
NOTE
Automatic reversing of the tool shape is valid when system
parameter No.800#3 is set to “1”.
(3)Cutting Area
Method for determining the cutting area is the same as that of
conventional CAP II for 1path or 2path lathe. Determine the cutting
area by moving graphic cursors along the part figure.
D For the method of determining the cutting area for the turning
process, refer to chapter III. PROGRAMMING AND
OPERATION BY Symbolic FAPT, section 3.4.7 Specifying the
direction and area of cutting, of the CONVERSATIONAL
AUTOMATIC PROGRAMMING FUNCTION FOR LATHE
OPERATOR’s MANUAL, B–61804E–2/04.
