Improve CNC Operation Efficiency with Customized Keys on TOSNUC 999
ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL, February 08, 2022 -
While CNC machines are excellent at doing what they are programmed to do, it is the machine operator's role to make sure they are commanded accurately. That is why being able to properly navigate the control panel plays an important role in efficiency and productivity of part manufacturing.
The TOSNUC 999 control from Shibaura Machine allows even novice CNC operators the ability to speed up display and function input and lessen the learning curve. With the Customized Keys located on the bottom of the keyboard, operators can touch a single or double key pattern in order to execute specific operations continuously instead of entering multi-keystrokes.
Quick and Continuous Operation
With many functions and displays often requiring the input of several characters, it can slow down productivity by having to enter the whole multi-character input every time. Utilizing the TOSNUC Customized Keys, operators are able to create customized shortcuts. This not only improves user experience and speeds up input of functions and displays, but it is also useful for beginners just learning the controls.
The Customized Keys shown as dice (⚀ ⚁ ⚂ ⚃ ⚄ ⚅) allow for input of a series of keystrokes to be stored. Pressing one of the dice customized keys will then execute the operation continuously. Using the cards Customized Keys (♠ ♦ ♣ ♥) allows the control to memorize a combination of CNC standard displays such as main, sub, and window. Pressing one of these keys displays the combination memorized.
