Turning using HEIZ milling machines.

 

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.

CAD drawing


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.

Input of the special turning function.

After the cutting line has been input completely and correctly, the milling path calculation can be started using the function CAM . PCNC-Lathe.

ToolSelection 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 cutEmployment and position correction of the cutting line.

RelativeThe cutting line is always so offset in Y that the highest point lies at
Y = 0.
ABSOLUTEThe cutting line is not offset. Thus more material can be removed even for a smaller turning diameter.
Clearance procedureBefore milling, the cutting line material is removed in layers using the clearance process.

NoneThere is no exposure of the cutting line.
Row exposure.The cutting line is exposed by horizontal milling.
ScaledThe cutting line is exposed through scaled lines.
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.

hatched clearance movements with cutting line in the X- / Y level. The cutting line lies below Y = 0. Settings: ABSOLUTE + row exposure.

Scaled clearance movements with cutting line in the X- / Y level. The highest point of the cutting line lies at Y = 0. Settings: Relative + scaled.
