The Shop-Talk Back-Plotters are the real heart and soul of the Shop-Talk CAD/CAM
programming system. CNC programmers knows the value of Tool Verification when manually
editing their CNC programs.
The Back-Plotters are great for Process Routing Engineers. Engineers writing process
routings can load any ASCII NC tape file to view how the programmer actually machined
the part. You also get a better estimate of the actual cycle time for machining the
part. Your machine file contains the information for tool changes and rapid traverse
rates providing accurate cycle times. The Mill Back Plotter also allows you to back
plot files that contain subprograms for FANUC or FADAL. A work offset table is also
provided for viewing multiple part zeroes. Our Back-Plotters support G54-G59, or
E1-E99 work offsets.
After editing, go back to the plotter and check the new results. The back-plotter
has many options and configurations for any type of machine. You set parameters for
each machine tool in a machine file. Different modes of plotting define the speed
of the plot including a single block option. When the tool changes, the plotter automatically
changes the drawing color. Rapid moves are drawn by a dotted line and cutting moves
are drawn by a solid line. You can start the plot at any block number in the file
or from the beginning. The Mill-Cam Back-Plotter allows you to view in X&Y, X&Z,
Y&Z, or Isometric. The Mill Plotter also displays 4th Axis, A or B moves.
