NOTES:

  • Selectable start position, CW/CCW cutting, and selectable repeat mode and direction.
  • The STARTING POSITION and REPEAT DIRECTION parameters can be directly entered with the numeric keypad. Direction arrows are provided for quick reference.
  • The actual LEADOUT position is determined by the direction of the cut. The figure above shows the LEADOUT position assuming a clockwise cutting direction has been selected.
  • When running the resulting NC part program, position the torches at the CENTER of the first part, regardless of the REPEAT MODE selected. From this position, the program moves out to the actual pierce point.
  • When performing AUTO REPEAT mode operations, parts are shifted to the left and right at a 60 degree angle to minimize the amount of scrap between parts.
