4. MACHINING DEFINITION
(MENU NO. 4)
788
This section explains how to output the same T code when the same tool
is used for different machining types by tilting the tool axis and using
either norma
l or reverse clamping.
It is impossible to assign the same tool number to tools if their size and
setting direction are different.
However, using the following method enables the same T code to be
output:
(1)Output method
Set up MTF1104 = 3, and enter a threedigit tool number. Then,
setting bit 3 of system parameter No. 802 to 1 enables only the lowest
two digits of the entered threedigit tool number to be output as the
T code. Therefore, assigning a tool number as listed below enables the
same T code to be output.
(Example)

101 Outer surface machining

201 Outer surface machining
(inverse process)
B0 Reverse T01
301 Front end facing
(normal process)
B90 Reverse T01
401 Front end facing
(inverse process)
B90 Normal T01
501 Rear end facing
(normal process)
B–90 Normal T01
601 Rear end facing
(inverse process)
B–90 Reverse T01
NOTE
1 Since the output tool number is two digits, up to 99 tools can
be registered.
2 If the same T code is used to draw tool figures different in
the way they are set, as mentioned above, in foreground
animated simulation, it is necessary to output an M code
specific to each tool figure.
(See chapters explaining machining simulation for details.)
