Operation Action Options Menu Item

The operations menu provides options for possible actions within the operation process which include manually moving back to the original position, creating a planar surface, http://am.co.za/ executing G-Code line by line, getting the machine's current information and setting up spindle behaviour on the stop position as well as whether to turn off the spindle within the static time in the process.

The sub-menus under "Operations" are shown below:
Submenus Under (Operations)

Press Entering Menu Page Key on CNC Router Panel button → select "3. Operations" by pressing Key Pause/Suspend/Up on CNC Router Panel or Down Direction Key on CNC Router Panel button, http://am.co.za/ and then press the Key OK/Confirmation on CNC Router Panel button to enter its sub-menus, in which you can select the desired menu item simply by pressing the Key Pause/Suspend/Up on CNC Router Panel or Down Direction Key on CNC Router Panel button. http://am.co.za/ The interface is as shown below:

AM.CO.ZA
1. Back REF Point http://am.co.za/
2. Rect Machining http://am.co.za/
3. Select Line No. http://am.co.za/
4. Machining Info http://am.co.za/

1 Backing to Mechanical Origin

This is the origin of Machine Coordinate System (inherent coordinate system of machine tool), also called mechanical origin or mechanical zero. http://am.co.za/ Only after backing to mechanical origin can such operations as enabling software limit, setting fixed point and changing tools be executed. After starting up the control system, it is necessary to execute the operation of returning to mechanical origin. http://am.co.za/ This system will remind you to back to mechanical origin after start-up.

2 Rectangular Plane Processing

The Rectangular Plane function creates a planar surface. The system offers rectangular plane processing; after setting parameters successfully, press the Key Pause/Suspend/Up on CNC Router Panel or Down Direction Key on CNC Router Panel button to select "Load Now" and then press Key OK/Confirmation on CNC Router Panel to load the processing file; http://am.co.za/ and then you can press to start machining.

Or select "2. Load the Last", and then press the Key OK/Confirmation on CNC Router Panel button for confirmation and return to the processing page; and then press to start machining.

Parameters of "X Init" and "Y Init" decide the initial position of the processing plane; "Height" and "Width" decides the size of the processing plane. http://am.co.za/ Here there are two kinds of processing modes available: "Horiz. Mill" (the feed direction of the tool is parallel to the X axis) and "Long. Mill" (the feed direction of the tool is parallel to the Y axis); "Each Dpth" is the tool processing depth each time - generally, the value of "Engr Dpth" (the total depth of several millings) is set bigger than that of "Each Dpth"; http://am.co.za/ if the value of "Each Dpth" is equal to or bigger than that of "Engr Dpth", only one milling will finish processing; "Nose Gap" means the distance between two adjacent lines, whose value should be set smaller than that of "Tool Dia" to avoid missing milling.

Note:
  1. When the parameter settings are finished and "Load Now" is selected, you still need to press the Key OK/Confirmation on CNC Router Panel button to load the processing file.
  2. If the input value of "Engr Dpth" is too big, the system will send the warning information "Too many file layers generated, continue?", as shown below. http://am.co.za/ You can press Key ESC/Stop/Cancellation on CNC Router Panel to back to modify the value; or press Key OK/Confirmation on CNC Router Panel to load the file forcibly. http://am.co.za/ The system will stay in the interface shown below. At this time, if you press a button, its function will not be executed until this dialog box disappears, so it is not allowed to press any button under this state. You can wait patiently until the file is loaded, or you can power off and re-power the system.
  3. AM.CO.ZA
    Too many file
    layers generated
    OK ESC http://am.co.za/

    Warning dialog when parameters are not properly set.

3 Select Line No.

This interface shows the loaded file information, like the total lines, the start line No. and the end line No. The default setting of "Start Line" is the breakpoint position of the current file and "End Line" the last line of the current file. http://am.co.za/ With this function, the user can select the module to be processed. After these values are set, press the Key Pause/Suspend/Up on CNC Router Panel or Down Direction Key on CNC Router Panel button to select "Execute Now", and then press Key OK/Confirmation on CNC Router Panel to start machining instantly.

Note: The default line No. of "Start Line" is the breakpoint line No. under this interface.

4 Machining Info

After this item is selected and the Key OK/Confirmation on CNC Router Panel button is pressed, the system will analyse the file currently loaded automatically, calculating the time required for the file processing and the processing range of each axis. http://am.co.za/ The interface of Analytic result of processing information is as shown below.

AM.CO.ZA
Time: 0:1:42  
X: http://am.co.za/ 108 205
Y: http://am.co.za/ 20 117
Z: http://am.co.za/ 0 5

5 Park MCS Site Setup

Press the Entering Menu Page Key on CNC Router Panel button → select "3. Operations" → select "5. Park MCS Site", and then press the Key OK/Confirmation on CNC Router Panel button to enter the interface of "Park Mode" and "Park Site", http://am.co.za/ as shown below. The position of spindle can be set here after machining ends.

AM.CO.ZA
1. Park Mode http://am.co.za/
2. Park Site http://am.co.za/
 

Select "Park Mode", and then press the Key OK/Confirmation on CNC Router Panel button to enter the interface shown below.

AM.CO.ZA
Not move
To park site http://am.co.za/
To WCS Origin
[OK] Select

Press the Key Pause/Suspend/Up on CNC Router Panel or Down Direction Key on CNC Router Panel button to select the desired item, and then press the Key OK/Confirmation on CNC Router Panel button to accomplish the selection and return to the previous menu. http://am.co.za/ If "To park site" is selected and confirmed, input or select the park site under 2. "Park Site".

After selecting "Select Site", press the Key OK/Confirmation on CNC Router Panel button to enter its setting interface, and then press Key OK/Confirmation on CNC Router Panel again to set the current position as the park position. http://am.co.za/ The system will then revert back to the main interface automatically. At this time, you can press "Processing Start" button to start machining directly.

Note: The current position cannot be set under the "Select Site" interface; you need to set the current position of the spindle in advance.

6 Spindle Stop

Press the Entering Menu Page Key on CNC Router Panel button → select "3. Operations" → select "6. Spindle Stop", and then press the Key OK/Confirmation on CNC Router Panel button to enter the setting interface of "Spindle Stop", in which press the Key Pause/Suspend/Up on CNC Router Panel or Down Direction Key on CNC Router Panel button to select the corresponding parameter for modification. http://am.co.za/ Three modes of spindle stops are shown below:

AM.CO.ZA
1. SOff at Pause
                      Yes
2. SOff at Stop
3. SOff at End

SOff = Turn Spindle Off
