rotary marking

Part diameter: click it, and fill in part diameter.

Focus length: click it and fill in focus length of F-θlens.

Note: the two parameters affect marking result directly.

Two split models:

Mark selected: control marking size through configuring split size, don’t click ‘mark by split line’ at the same time, or the software will split as ‘mark by split line’.

Mark by split line: click it, the Ezcad2 software will mark as ‘mark by split line’, click the left keyboard twice to draw split line, click the right keyboard near the split line to cancel the split line. The direction of the split line is the same with rotary axis.

‘axis step’: The move distance each time when the key Ctrl and arrow key.

Left/Right/Up/Down was pressed together. Press key PageUp/PageDown to increase/decrease the distance.

Press Ctrl+Left to move left and Ctrl+Right to move right for expansion axis X.

Press Ctrl+Up to move up and Ctrl+Down to move down for expansion axis Y or axis Z.

Part: The part count that has been marked. Press the button R on the rightwards will reset the part count.

Total num: The total count need to mark. When the parts have been marked to reach the Total num, the software will stop it automatically.

Continues: Repeatedly mark the figure until stop it manually.

Mark Selected: Only those figures selected will be marked.

Click parameter, this dialog window will pop-up

rotary mark configuration parameters

The definition of each parameter:

Enable: Enable current expansion axis.

ID: The current expansion axis will be used as axis X/Y/Z.

ID is X, the figure will be split in direction X to mark.
ID is Y, the figure will be split in direction Y to mark.
ID is Z, the expansion axis will move to the appointed position to mark.

Pulses per round: The pulse numbers each round that the expansion axis rotating. We can calculate it through following formula:

X=(360/N)* n


X denotes Pulses per round.
N denotes step angle of step motor.
n denotes micro-step set by step motor driver.

Min coor: The minimum logical coordinates of expansion axis. When the object’s coordinate of the expansion axis is smaller than the minimum coordinates, the warning message will popup.

Max coor: The maximum coordinate of expansion axis. When the object’s coordinate of the expansion axis is greater than the maximum logical coordinates, the warning message will popup.

Min speed: the minimum rotary speed of expansion axis.

Max speed: the maximum rotary speed of expansion axis.

Acc. time: Acceleration time needed when expansion axis moves from minimum speed to maximum speed.

Goto start position after finished: The expansion axis will go back to the initial position after finishing marker.

Speed: The speed of the axis going back to the initial position after finishing marker.

Rotation axis: Select it, it’s indicates that current expansion axis is rotation axis. Moving manner is rotation; otherwise, it indicates flat content processing or Z axis locating process.

Gear ratio: Electric motor connecting axis, the reducing ratio is one. If there are reducing setup, the reducing ratio is reducing setup ratio.

Part diameter: The workpiece need to mark currently. If the expansion axis is rotation axis, part diameter, an important parameter to count move distance, must fill in accurately.

Zero: Whether the current expansion axis has zero signal. When the expansion axis hasn’t enabled zero signal, it can’t set up an absolute coordinate. Therefore, marking a set of parts require adjusting site to make every processing stay in the same site. So, the system takes expansion axis as default origin point before processing. After processing a workpiece, the system will move expansion axis back. In this way each workpiece will process in the same site.

Speed of Go zero: the moving speed of expansion axis looking for zero signal.

Zero time out: Set the time of expansion axis finding zero point. If it overruns it, the system will present “overtime”.

Accurate Zero: When it is selected, the axis must give three zero signals in go zero process; if it isn’t selected, the axis only needs one signal.
