Tool life data recording

When tool life values are recorded, the contact time (service life) and the distance covered by the tool during contact (service distance) must be calculated. These channel parameters are required for the configuration of the tool life data recording function.

Only travel by motion blocks is considered in the basic setting. Positioning by rapid traversing has no impact on the tool life quantities.

The interpolator displays the data (tool ID, contact time, contact distance) after the tool is replaced. The trigger point for activating tool life data recording can be linked with by P-CHAN-00482 using the T or the D word.

The service life is recorded in ms; the service distance is recorded in mm.

Tool life data recording can be adapted to tool use by means of weighting factors.
