4. FUNCTIONS TO SIMPLIFY PROGRAMMING
[Classification] Input signal
[Function] The signals can set the method used for machining multiple workpieces.
These signals are effective when the MLP bit (bit 3 of parameter 16201)
is set to 1. Generally, the signals must be changed while the CNC is in
the reset state.
MLP1 MLP2 Method used to machine multiple workpieces
0 0 The command for machining multiple workpieces is not
1 0 Trial machining when machining multiple workpieces
0 1 Remainder machining after trial machining when ma-
chining multiple workpieces
1 1 Complete machining of multiple workpieces
#6 #5 #4 #3 #2 #1
#6 #5 #4 #3
[Data type] Bit
MPC When the number of machined workpieces is counted in
0 : The number of actually machined workpieces is counted.
1 : The number is incremented by one when complete machining or
remainder machining is executed (but not when trial machining is
MLP Setting for taking multiple workpieces depends on:
0 : The set parameter (No.16206).
1 : A signal (MLP1 or MLP2) input from the PMC machine.
