CAP II FOR TWO–PATH LATHE
WITH TWO OPPOSING SPINDLES
1. CAP II FOR TWO–PATH
LATHE WITH TWO
1 Chuck and/or tailstock are not shown in the simulation
2 Interference check function is not available.
3 Zoom In/Out function of the simulation picture is not
4 If the system parameter No.701 #6 is set to be “Restore
blank figure by M30”, a blank figure is restored on the
primary machining window when M30 command is
executed in either primary or secondary path.
5 If successive “MOVE WORK” operation is performed
manually or by the M–code without restoring blank figure in
between, both primary and secondary work piece figures
6 If blank figure is restored on the primary machining window
before moving the work piece figure to the secondary
machining window, the work piece figure is overlaid with the
blank figure and lost.
7 Tool motion, caused by the execution of macro program,
can be simulated and drawn if the tooling information is
registered for the tool which is used in the macro program.
8 In gradated animation mode, when display is switched from
the CAP II screen to the NC screen and back to the CAP II
screen again, the primary machining window is redrawn
with blank work piece figure for turning simulation. The
secondary machining window is erased.
9 Soft–keys, “ROTATE”, “AROUND” and “SECTION”, which
are displayed in gradation mode, are valid for turning
process simulation only. If one of these keys are depressed
during animated simulation, the simulation is stopped.
10 Do not switch the display between CAP II window and NC
window when moving work piece from primary to secondary
machining window. Otherwise, the result of the moving
operation is not guaranteed.
Both primary and secondary turret share common “Tool Data”
database. Refer to chapter V, SETTING AND DISPLAY OF DATA,
