How to Use the Function of Split?

in MarkingMate Manual, , ,


Users can activate “Split” function from 「Property Table」→「Golbal」, see Fig.

Split function

If the button is like × Tiling, it means the function is disable. If the button is √ Tiling, then users can execute this function. “Split” is used when the size of object users want to mark is over the lens mark area or when users have any special demands. Click this button √ Tiling and the setting page will pop up, see Fig.

Enable: Enable this function

Band Size
Length: Length of each divided part.
Width: Width of each divided part.

Overlap Size
X Dir.: Length of the allowed overlap part.
Y Dir.: Width of the allowed overlap part.

Manual Split: Enable manual split function, and the manual split bar will be activated.

Split By Layer: Split graphic by layer.
Split Optimization: Optimize the split path. If a graphic is smaller than the Band Size, this option will ensure it to be marked at one time. Please note that this option will be disabled under manual split mode.
Show XY-Table Traveling Area: Decide to show the traveling area of XY-Table or not.
Encoder Compensation: Decide to use encoder to do compensation.

Use Overcut

Set the overcut length. This value must follow the rule of lens area is equal to or greater than the sum of tiling size and twice overcut length, see Fig.9.03. The difference between overlap and overcut is that the overlapping area will be marked twice but overcut won’t, see Fig.9.04 and Fig.9.05. Overlap and overcut cannot be used at the same time.

When graphic split function is activated, the working area will be changed according to the settings of XY Table area and lens area as Fig.

working area

Working Area: The Working Area for graphic split is the sum of XY Table Area and the half of Lens Area.
XY Table Area: When the lens center moves along with the edge of XY Table Area, the marking area will be the same as Working Area. The setting method please refer to XY Table Control Panel.
Lens Area: The setting method please refer to Lens Manager.
Offset: The distance between origin (0, 0) and the program origin. Origin setting method please refer to XY Table Control Panel.

Manual Split

Allowed users to arrange bands position and marking order, which “Manual Split Bar” allowed users to adjust the tiling settings under “Manual Split” mode, see Fig.
