The screen layout matches the operator's process flow from setup to pro- duction. Guidance func- tions, parameters, code and manual search func- tion are available on- screen when and where they're needed. A dual door check, 3D graphic viewer, maintenance screens and easy access to machine information are also included. The recently developed "My Panel" features enable operators to store frequently used func- tions, macros or switches for quick access. The control has a new QWERTY keyboard and larger 15" display. An interactive status bar at the top of the screen enables the operator to see information on warnings, alarms and indicator statuses by tapping it. The Pro6 control is customizable, and offers on-screen programming guidance for drilling canned cycles, probing, automatic tool length measurement (ATLM) and tilted working plane. The operator follows prompts and selects "input" to automatically insert lines of code into a program. New functions raise the standard for machine control, including its Geometric Intelligence (GI) that provides 2D corner control and optimized canned cycle indexing. Pro6 also has simultane- ous program editing, MDI recall of the past 20 inputs, and 3 GB of memor y for program and subprogram storage, with an option to expand to 20 GB.
