The following section describes how you can program turning cycles
using the ManualTurn system. Its purpose is to help you in selecting
the turning cycles and assigning parameters to them. The menu tree
for the turning cycles can be altered by the machine manufacturer.
This section describes the menu tree in its original form.
All turning cycles can also be executed in single-block mode (see also
section "Program generation with EasyStep and G code").
You can select the following turning cycles using, for example, the
operating mode switch in the CYCLE and STOCK REMOVAL modes:
Deep hole drilling
Hole circle face/peripheral
You set the parameters of the turning cycles in a dialog in the
parameter input field. You can either call the programming graphics of
the parameterized cycle or the help display into the graphic display
area by pressing the information key.
At the end of the cycle, the tool returns to the position it was in before
the cycle started.
