A soft key on the Fanuc 0-C lathe control that enables background editing.
A soft key that activates the graphics display.
A function key located on the MDI keypad that displays the graphics parameter screen and a soft key link to the graphics display.
auxiliary function lock
A CNC lathe feature that disables M, S, and T codes for the purpose of checking a part program.
A feature of the Fanuc 0-C lathe control that allows an operator to edit a program in memory while another program is being run.
Computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing. CAD/CAM is the use of software to aid in the design and manufacturing of a part.
The control button used to pause a program. Also known as feed hold, cycle stop pauses tool feed but does not stop spindle movement.
DISTANCE TO GO
The distance the tool has yet to move in the current program block.
A trial run of the part program without any parts or cutting fluid.
A prove-out method that executes a part program without any parts or cutting fluid.
Used for emergencies only, the EMERGENCY STOP button immediately shuts down all machine functions.
The control button used to pause a program. Also known as cycle stop, feed hold pauses tool feed but does not stop spindle movement.
feed rate override
A control that adjusts the programmed feed rate by a designated percentage during operation.
first part run
The first successful execution of a part program that produces the first good part.
The normal process of editing a part program that is the active program on the Fanuc 0-C lathe control.
A function of the Fanuc control that allows an operator to visually dry run a part program without moving the axes and risking tool damage. This prove-out method is accessed by pressing the AUX/GRAPH key.
A part programming character that does not conform to the syntax, or programming format, of a CNC control. The control is not able to read or execute an illegal character.
A part program character that conforms to the syntax, or programming format, of a CNC control.
A part program mistake that occurs when an unintended legitimate character or value appears in a part program in place of the intended character or value.
A code used to signal an action from a miscellaneous group of commands. M codes change cutting tools, turn on or turn off the coolant, spindle, or workpiece clamps, etc.
A CNC lathe feature that displays the change in tool position on the position display without moving the tool. Machine lock is a basic way to check a part program for errors.
A part program mistake that either disrupts the machining process or renders a part program useless.
Performing a series of steps to verify the accuracy of a part program. Operators use graphic displays, dry runs, and single blocking to check a program for errors.
rapid traverse override
A control that adjusts the rate of rapid traverse by a designated percentage during operation.
A program code that determines the speed during a cutting operation.
Time that is spent setting up the fixtures and tooling, calculating tool offsets, and performing all the necessary tasks to produce the first accurate part.
A key that activates the single block feature for the lathe. The single block function runs the program one block at a time to prove out the program.
A prove-out method that executes a part program one block at a time at reduced feeds.
The programming format of a CNC control.
A part program mistake that occurs when an illegal character appears in a program.
A program code used to indicate the specific tool for a tool change.
An unwanted but acceptable deviation from a given dimension. Tolerances indicate the allowable difference between a physical feature and its intended design.
Any area of a part program consisting of the pairing of an address letter and a numerical value.
