1. Auxiliary function output
During the workpiece machining, technology functions (-> auxiliary
functions) can be issued from the CNC program to the PLC. These
auxiliary functions are used for example to control additional
equipment for the machine tool, such as quills, grabbers, clamping
2. Fast auxiliary function output
For switching functions which are time-critical, the confirmation
times for the -> auxiliary functions are minimized, and unnecessary
stopping points in the machining process can be avoided.
Synchronized axes take the same time to traverse as the geometry
axes take for their path.
The system memory is a memory in the CPU in which the following
data are stored:
• Data required by the operating system
• The operands times, counters, markers
A variable, which exists although it has not been programmed by the
-> parts program programmer. It is defined by a data type and the
variable name preceded by the character $.
See also -> user-defined variable.
Teach In can be used to create or correct parts programs. The
individual program blocks can be input via the keyboard and traversed
immediately. Positions approached via the direction keys or the
handwheel can also be saved. Additional details such as G functions,
feeds or M functions can be input in the same block.
A tool is a software tool for inputting and changing the -> parameters
of a parameter block. Tools include:
By programming a T function (5 integer decades) in the block, you
can select the tool. Up to 9 cutting edges (D addresses) can be
assigned to every T number. The number of tools to be managed in
the controller is specified in the configuring data.
