250 mazak i mam putting a change point in the middle of the program need to increment input my z half way through the program please help thanks
My 640 won't do that. If I run first and second sides of the same part the way you want to do it, I write two programs, the first calling the second when it's done, the second calling the first when the part is finished.
I rely on the setup info to change Z0.
The only times I use 'shift' is for repeating the same procedure on the same side of a part, using the 'shift count' with it. That shift and shift count is at the bottom of the program. I can't put that in the middle.
That would be for, say, cutting four pieces off a bar, then manually pulling the bar in lieu of an auto bar pull.

if you want to make a program stop, you need to have your first edge face start at .12 and end at .o6. now be careful to keep all your cutting point z's on bar outs, drill faces, thd outs ect... of the first side a -.06 or you'll smack into the part.
for the second half of the program (after the M0 program stop) write everthing like you normally would for a program.
edge face starting at .06 and ending at 0 and all your cutting points z's for your bar outs be 0.
hope this helps
Custer has it, call up a second program in your end block (at least on a Tplus). I've tried monkey screwing around with shifting #s in the same program, not worth it.
you can do it that way... but if your need to reform a thread, or re-run a process, you'll have to make sure you are on the correct program.
