we use for our machine assemblies teh adjustable functions to move all the components as slides, heads, rolles, tables... and so on. For each position of the whole NC machine we must save a set of user defined variables manully to excel. And the handlig of the variable table itself is not handy since years. So from our point of view Siemens should improove the variable table to get a solution. I have added a exampe picture how I mean it shout look in the future.
That will make everything easier, and allows to save sets of variable groups for different positions of the machine.
