There are many in this industry that have never even heard of
let alone how to apply its many features. This course will show you how to reap
its benefits, giving you ways to reduce setup & cycle time, streamline
programming, make machines safer to run, and in general, improve your CNC
While we assume you have a good understanding of standard G-code-level
manual programming as you begin this course, we assume nothing about your
current knowledge about parametric programming. So when it comes to parametric
programming, we start from scratch. While an elementary understanding of
computer programming helps, we don't assume you have computer programming
This manual covers three very popular versions of parametric programming.
Fanuc's custom macro B is by far the most popular version, and is the version
of parametric programming being used by any control manufacturer claiming to be
Fanuc-compatible (Yasnac, Haas, Mitsubishi, Mazatrol's eia, Seikos,
among others). But even if you don't have Fanuc controls, this manual also
includes presentations for Okuma's user task 2 and Fadal's macro. Over 80% of
CNC machines used today are covered!
All presentations are applications based. Each step of the way, we show
real-world applications that you can easily adapt to your specific needs. There
are plenty of examples and we stress the reasons why features are available as
well as how they can help you (compare this your control manufacturer's
descriptions of parametric programming).
