In this procedure, you select your particular rotary model from the list of models in the control, so that the control can load the correct parameters for that unit. In this example, we have a TR160 unit installed on the table, with the tilt axis parallel to X.

We want to configure both the rotary (platter) and tilt (trunnion) axes. The rotary axis is physically connected to the 5th axis at the control cabinet. We want to designate the rotary axis C. The tilt axis is physically connected to the 4th axis at the control cabinet. We want to designate the tilt axis A.

  1. Find the nameplate on your rotary unit. Record the values in the “MODEL NO.” (model number) and “VER” (version) fields. On our example nameplate, we find that the model number is TR160, and the version is P4.

  2. On the Rotary Selection page, use the CURSOR keys or the jog handle to browse the list of rotary models to find your model.

    Dual-axis rotary units have two entries in the list: one for the rotary axis (ROT), and one for the tilt axis (TLT). Be sure to select the rotary model that matches both the model number and version on the nameplate. In the example below, the cursor highlights the rotary axis of the model that matches our example nameplate (TR160-P4-ROT).

  3. Press ENTER. The Select Table Orientation window appears.

  4. Press A, B, or C to change the axis letter.
  5. Press F4 to toggle the physical connection setting between 4th and 5th.
  6. Press ENTER to save the configuration to the Select New Rotaries table, or press UNDO to cancel.
  7. Repeat steps 2-6 for the tilt axis, if applicable. In this example, we would now set up the TR160 tilt axis (TR160-P4-TLT).
  8. After you complete the axis configuration, press EMERGENCY STOP, and then press F3 to apply the rotary parameters.
  9. Cycle power.
