Cue cards can be used to select machine functions for program creation or the machine
Jog Teach function will automatically create program lines as the machine is positioned.
A colour touch-screen is used for machine control and display of parameters as well
as allowing the operator to select the required winding program.
The Run Mode shows basic information about the state of the machine during program
execution such as program name and winding turns.
The Program Mode is for all program creation and editing. It is possible to type
directly on the program line, use the Cue Cards to select functions to build or overwrite
a program line, or by enabling the Jog-Trace function, use the Teach button on the
touch-screen to automatically create program lines based on the previously made movements.
Program commands use the familiar 2 character and parameter format such as PX 10
to position the X-axis servo to the 10mm point or SL for spindle lock.
The F1 controller is installed in all new CNC machines and can be retro-fitted to
some existing machines as a replacement for the G2 controller.
