  • Patent number: 6269283
    Abstract: A machining limit area specifying method and a manual feed machining method using a numerical control unit capable of easily performing machining in a desired shape by manual feed. In specifying a machining limit area on an X-Y plane, a desired machining shape is defined by shaping data or a combination of some shaping data on the X-Y plane at a predetermined Z-coordinate, and the desired machining shape defined by the shaping data is specified as a machining limit area in which movement of a tool is permitted on the X-Y plane in manual machining using the numerical control unit. In specifying a machining limit area in the Z-axis direction, an inverse function using an X- or Y-coordinate value as a parameter is obtained based on a function for specifying the machining limit area on the X-Y plane on condition that a Z-coordinate value is used as a parameter, and the machining limit area in the Z-axis direction is specified based on the inverse function.

  • Patent number: 5610842
    Abstract: A method of animation plotting by an NC machining program on an NC lathe having a multiplicity of tool rests. The method provides animation plotting for Y-axis machining such as engraving. A display screen of a CRT/MDI provides first display areas "a1" to "an" for simulating a machining process of a workpiece projected in an axial direction of a tool. A second display area is also provided for simulating a machining process of the workpiece projected in the direction of a Y-axis orthogonal to an X-axis and a Z-axis. For each rotational positioning point .theta.i (i=1 to n) of the spindle, Y-axis machining is simulated by simultaneously displaying the movement path of the tool and the shape of the tool within the first display area "ai" and the second display area.

  • Patent number: 5359530
    Abstract: An animated plotting method in which an actual machining action is accurately simulated even if a tool rest is moved to another main spindle not directly associated therewith for cutting, or a single workpiece loaded on a main spindle is subjected to cutting operations by means of a plurality of tool rests. By virtue of a range specification command G10 for specifically setting a plottable range of each tool rest, a plottable range is imparted to each of the tool rests (S3, S4), and then the plottable range for each of the tool rests is displayed on either the left half (13a) or the right half (13b) of the display screen (13) depending on the operating position of each tool rest, or depending on whether each tool rest lies on the side of a first main spindle (14) or on the side of a second main spindle (16), thereby accurately simulating a path of the tool performing an actual machining operation and the state of cutting.
