The CNC control tracks the pallets as they move from their shelf, to the ready position, to the machining area and then back. The Pallet Schedule Table (PST) is found within the current commands pages.
To access, press the [CURRENT COMMANDS] button and use the cursor arrows to navigate to Devices, then Pallet Schedule Table.
The PST screen contains information to assist the operator in loading/unloading pallets and allows the operator to specify part programs and pallet processing sequences.
WARNING: It is not possible to leave an adjacent shelf empty to increase clearance for workholding.
NOTE: Pallet exiting the machine work envelope may not return to the shelf it was taken from. The machine will go to the closest empty shelf starting with the shelf A / Load Station.
To run the machine through all the scheduled pallets in Pallet Scheduler Mode call the first pallet into the machine. Press INSERT from the PST page. This will cause the M199 at the end of the program to behave like an M50 + M99. At the end of the program it will retrieve the next scheduled pallet and continue to run until all scheduled pallets are completed.
The Pallet Pool has a sub panel next to the load station, with an Emergency Stop button for safety, and a Part Ready button.
The Part Ready button is used to signal the lifter that the pallet in the load station is prepared and ready to enter the Pallet Pool. The load station door must be rotated closed for safety so that the lifter has access to the load station pallet.
The Pallet Schedule Table incorporates a number of features to help the user with their routine.
Load Order and Pallet Status: These two features work together to show which pallet is currently in the machining area. Enter a number for the load order and press [ENTER] on the Pallet Status field to select the pallet status. The choices are: 0: Unscheduled, 1: Scheduled, 2: Missing and 3: Completed.
[ENTER] The function changes depending where the highlighter is located. It is used to enter a user comment, set a value in the field and to view options for the field.
[ALTER] Load Pallet and Program. This will load the selected pallet into the machine and call the assigned program to memory.
[INSERT] Run loaded program. This will start the machine running in Pallet Scheduler Mode. The machine will continue to run all scheduled pallets in the PST until they are completed. For more information on Pallet Scheduler Mode refer to M199 Pallet / Part Load or Program Endin the M-code section.
[F2]Schedule Load Station pallet. This will set the status of the Load Station pallet to Scheduled.
[F3] Put away Load Station pallet. This will return the Load Station pallet to the pallet pool.
