Tool Life - Within the Current Commands page there is a Tool Life window displaying tool usage. This register counts each time the tool is used. The tool life monitor stops the machine once the tool reaches the value in the alarms column.

Tool Overload - Tool load can be defined by the Tool Load monitor; this changes normal machine operation if it reaches the tool load defined for that tool. When a tool overload condition is encountered, one of four actions occurs depending on Setting 84:

  • Alarm - Generate an alarm

  • Feedhold - Stop the feed

  • Beep - Sounds an audible alarm

  • Autofeed - Automatically increase or decrease the feed rate

Spindle speed is verified by checking the Current Commands All Active Codes display (also displayed in the Main Spindle window). Live tooling spindle axis RPM is also displayed on this page.

To select an axis for jogging, enter the axis name on the input line and press HANDLE JOG.

The Help display has all the G and M codes listed. They are available within the first tab of the Help tabbed menu.

The jogging speeds of 100, 10, 1.0 and 0.1 inches per second can be adjusted by the Feed Rate Override keys. This gives an additional 10% to 200% control.
