Machining center with knife library and without the difference between the knife library? Recently, a friend who makes mold bought a machine to start his own business. After seeing the operation, HE felt that the machine making mold is a little different from the one making products. Most of the mold machine does not take the knife library, and the products are with the knife library, the knife library and do not take the knife library what is the difference!

In terms of programming, there is no difference, but the program post-processing inside less call knife number (G43H00 knife length), looking for coordinates, XY direction is the same, but the Z direction is a little different, the mold directly on the workpiece surface, do a knife once, Z coordinates are changed every time (or change the coordinate system).
There is a knife library is to install all the tools used above, and then each knife in the workpiece surface is zero, and then copy the knife length, programming has (G43H0-) code, this time the coordinate Z direction is 0! Use other knife directly (M6T0-) automatic knife change, which knife to call which one!
