The thread setup programming which includes thread ratio selection and system testing is performed with a Panasonic GT touch screen. The screen will also display the cycle time for each joint, counters, manual operation buttons to test each system, input test display, output test display, feed settings and speed setting for all stepper motor systems. Chucks can be set on the touch screen to open and close, manually or automatically at start and thread completion. Machine can be programmed with thread ratios which meet the ASTM F480 or DIN4925 standards, such as 6mm, 12mm, 2 TPI, 4 TPI. Additional thread types can be set up. Please contact us to discuss.
