Alternating Tables on a Twin Table Machine
To alternate X/Y and X/V programs in Router-CIM Automation Suite with a twin-table post processor, you will need to add the following variable to the Router-CIM NCVAR file. To learn how to add variables to NCVARs, click here.
Add the variable exactly as shown:
Set the variable to T.
This assumes that the machine has two post processors, one for processing on the right table, and one for processing on the left table.
The NC code file produced for the left table will be different from that for the right table. Odd numbered programs will be for the left table, and even number programs will be for the right table.
This is also referred to as Pendulum Processing
Note: There must be _ALT.$pp versions of the post installed.
