In the process of using the computer engraving machine
, first of all we need to have a correct understanding, understand the general operation process, so it is of great help for the new contact with the user of CNC equipment, so the following is a brief operation of the process and details:
1, the boot
Before starting the machine, first make sure that all the connection between the engraving machine and the computer is normal, and then turn on the power supply of the engraving machine and the computer.After the system is started, enter the NUMERICAL control system.
2. Mechanical reset
After starting the system (the system will judge whether the machine tool has "returned to the mechanical origin" before entering the automatic processing), the prompt dialog box of "returned to the mechanical origin" will first appear. Click the corresponding button, and the machine tool of the engraving machine will automatically return to the mechanical origin position and correct the coordinate system.
3. Check the status
Check the input and output of each signal, check whether there is a fault signal, in order to ensure that woodworking engraving machine tools can be safe processing.
4. Loading processing procedure
Before processing, the user generally needs to load the required processing program, otherwise all functions with automatic processing are invalid.
Select [file F)] > [open and load (O)] menu, Windows standard file operation dialog box will pop up, you can select the file to be processed.Or in automatic processing window, click the right mouse button, the pop-up context menu, select, open and loading (O) file operations in the pop-up dialog box to choose to processing file and then click "open" button, after processing program into the system, at this point, you can click on the "automatic" window, view the current processing program.
5. Manual operation
(1) Display manual operation interface
Click the "Manual" port with the mouse, and a manual operation interface will be displayed. On this interface, the machine tool of the engraving machine can be operated manually.
(2) Manual movement
Manual movement can be achieved by clicking the corresponding button on the manual operation interface with the mouse.It is also possible to manually move the CNC woodworking engraving machine tool through the small number key on the keyboard. Note that the input focus should be switched to the manual window first. The specific method is to switch to the manual window first, then click any position of the manual window with the left mouse button and press the corresponding number key on the keyboard to achieve manual movement
6. Determine the origin of the workpiece
The origin of X, Y, A coordinates in the processing program is the origin of the workpiece.Before you can process it, you first need to set the origin of the workpiece by:
Manually move the X axis, Y axis, Z axis and A axis of the engraving machine
to the desired position of the origin of the workpiece, and reset the coordinate value of the current position in the coordinate window (or select [operation] [setting the current point as the origin of the workpiece]), so that the current position will be used as the origin of the workpiece during the execution of the processing program.
7. Automatic processing.Automatic processing refers to the automatic processing of the engraving machine tool according to the selected processing procedures.
(1) Start automatic processing
Select the [Action] [Start] menu item or click the button on the toolbar to automatically execute the machine from the first sentence of the processing program.
(2) Stop automatic processing
During automatic processing, if you want to stop the processing program, select the menu item [Operation (O)] [Stop] or click the button on the toolbar, the engraving machine tool will stop the processing and enter the "stop state".This is a way of getting the system to stop precisely and orderly.
(3) Stop the automatic processing
During automatic processing, if the processing program needs to be paused, select the [Operation (O)] [pause] menu item or click the button on the toolbar to suspend the engraving machine tool.At this point, if you want to continue with the processor, you can either select the [Action (O)] [Start] menu item or click the button on the toolbar.
(4) Continue automatic machining at breakpoint
In the emergency stop state of unfinished processing, select the menu item of [make (O)] [[break point continues] or click the button on the toolbar, the CNC woodworking engraving machine
tool will automatically continue the processing from the stop line number of the last processing.
