Control Panel Functions for the CNC Mill

“Control Panel Functions for the CNC Mill” explains how operators use the machine and control panel functions to operate a CNC mill. Operators use the handle and jog mode to move mill axes incrementally or steadily. MDI mode executes isolated lines of programming and memory mode selects and edits existing programs. Before running a program, an operator may choose to execute the program in single block mode to prove it out or select the optional stop or block delete functions. The cycle start button starts the program. Once a program is running, the operator can use the machine control unit to adjust speed and feed with an override. To use a CNC mill, an operator needs to know how to perform important operations using machine panel functions to move machine components and control panel functions to execute programming codes. After taking this class, users should be able to explain the purpose of frequently used controls on the control panel of a CNC mill.
