5.4 ShopMill tool management
In the case of tools with more than one cutting edge, a separate set of
offset data is assigned to each cutting edge. You can create up to 9
cutting edges for each tool.
In the case of ISO programs (e.g. ISO dialect 1) you must specify an
H number. This corresponds to a particular tool offset set.
Follow the instructions given above to set up tools with more than one
edge in the tool list and enter the offset data for the 1
Then select the "Edges" and "New edge" softkeys.
Instead of the input fields for the first cutting edge, the offset data
input fields for the second cutting edge are displayed.
Enter the offset data for the second cutting edge.
Repeat this process if you wish to create more tool edge offset data.
Select the "Delete edge" softkey if you want to delete the tool edge
offset data for an edge.
You can only delete the data for the edge with the highest edge
By selecting softkey "D No. +" or "D No. –", you can display the offset
data for the edge with the next higher or next lower edge number
A tool that has just been created in the tool list is automatically
assigned the name of the selected tool group. You can change this
name as often as you want to
A tool name, e.g. "plain mill_120mm" or
A tool number, e.g. "1".
The tool name must not exceed 17 characters in length. You can use
letters, digits, the underscore symbol (_), periods (".") and slashes
