    I just glanced through the Mazatrol manual.
    Though I may have missed something, it seems that only GOTO is available with IF.
    And ASIN is not available.
    LT must be used in place of <

    I do not know about your control, but on Fanuc, it is better to use ATAN for finding angles.
    ASIN does not give answer in second or third quadrant, and ACOS not in third or fourth quadrant,...

    An interesting use of bitwise AND/OR/XOR is in conjunction with input system variables for interface signals. For example, there can be an application for the machine to automatically determine which...

    -0.5 on radius means that you are specifying a smaller radius, whereas the tool has a larger radius. So, it will overcut. But, this will come in picture only if you are using radius compensation....

    According to Fanuc manual, the retraction distance is not dependent on rpm.

    What I still do not know is why, even today,

    1. Memory is an issue with CNC ?
    2. The in-built calculator of an ordinary computer is more accurate than CNC ?
  9. Typically, an error of 10 to-the-power -10 gets...

    Typically, an error of 10 to-the-power -10 gets introduced in each arithmetic calculation. Therefore, #501 is definitely not equal to -0.675 after 20 additions. However, it would not show up on the...
  10. Rounding/Truncation in axis addresses

    Another thing to mention is, rounding/truncation is automatically done by the control if there are more number of decimal digits than the least-input-increment decimal digits (3 in metric and 4 in...

    As explained by Bill, it was caused by floating point error in calculations, not because of rounding to 0.0337
    If the DOC is added 20 times, it may not be exactly 0.675
    Even if it is 0.67495, the...

    Fair enough.
    But, what is the harm in using P--10-- in the parts you have machined (where machining up to the shoulder was not required)?
    It surely takes the pressure off the insert gradually which...

    Based on your experience, I am of the opinion that, for LARGE threads, one must use P--10-- or a higher value such as 15.

    Yes, it is happening in every pass. This may have some effect if the helix angle is large. Otherwise, how can the increased load on the insert be explained, as observed by Brent?
