This special function creates from a section running in the horizontal direction the movements for a turning facility. The section describes a section through the workpiece to be turned.
The section in the X/Y level is input into the CAD. For milling, the axes are converted into suitable machine movements.
- Graphic X > machine X
- Graphic Y > machine Z
|The direction of turning must be set in the X-direction on the machine. Milling is done with the machine X and Z axes.
In the CAD the section to be worked should be input in the range +X and -Y. The highest point of the working should lie at Y = 0. No part of the cutting line may lie above Y = 0! The cutting line must consist of one coherent section. For working off the milling paths are calculated and directly saved in a file using the DIN/ISO export filter for PCNC lathes. This turning equipment can be used only with WinPC-NC.
|The cutting line must consist of one coherent section. Several individual elements are joined by a horizontal line (red) in the
Y = 0 level.
After the cutting line has been input completely and correctly, the milling path calculation can be started using the function CAM . PCNC-Lathe.
|Tool||Selection of the milling tool from the library. A click on the tool graphic opens the tool input. The milling takes place using this tool.|
|Position of cut||Employment and position correction of the cutting line.
|Clearance procedure||Before milling, the cutting line material is removed in layers using the clearance process.
|Clearance separation [mm]||Separation of the clearance lines in (graphic) Y – direction.|
Following confirmation of the input the milling paths are calculated and saved directly in a file using the DIN/ISO export filter for PCNC lathes. This turning direction can be used only with WinPC-NC.
