Is it possible to generate using only four axis? Example...

Experimenter
Experimenter

For example, our machine is 5 axis with index and tilting. The control system is Fanuc oi series.

This control can caculate only four axis in block of NC data. If there are five axis on the block, the alrm comes out like "Exceed the number of the axises control"  

There are only four axis on the one block of NC data.

 

So, I need to know to generate using only four axis. 

 

For example, X, Z, A, B  or Y, Z, A,B  etc...

 

Anybody know?

 

Please help me Smiley Happy

Might that be determined by the programming method used?

Using towards/away from line for tool vector and projection vector generate 4 axis tool paths.

Keeping the tool axis pointed toward the center of rotation is the best way to get 4 axis output. There are several 4 axis only options for tool axis control in variable contour operations. Do you have Vericut? One of the things we do with vericut is set some rules to only allow 4 axis continuous motion on equipment like this when reviewing the tool path.
