The Synchronous and Composite Control function enables an arbitrary axis of one path to be synchronized with an arbitrary axis of another path (synchronous control). In a multi-path control, movements are usually made on the axes of a path according to a move command for the path (independent control in each path).
With Synchronous and Composite Control, a move command for an arbitrary axis of one path and a move command for an arbitrary axis of another path can be exchanged with each other to make a movement on each axis (composite control).
By applying a move command for an axis (master axis) to a different arbitrary axis (slave axis), the movements on the two axes can be synchronized with each other. Whether to synchronize the movement on a slave axis with the move command for the master axis or make a movement on a slave according to the command for the slave can be chosen using the signal (synchronous control selection signal) from the PMC.
A move command for an arbitrary axis of one path and a move command for an arbitrary axis of another path can be exchanged with each other to make a movement on each axis.
- Increase of machine efficiency and productivity
- Speed up programming and CNC commissioning
- Easier and faster programming
- Allows complex commands and synchronization between paths
