Processing steps of stone CNC machining center

1. Before turning on stone CNC machining center, first, make sure that all connections between the machine tool and the computer are normal. And then, turn on the power supply of the machine tool and the computer. After the system is started, enter the CNC system. 

2. After opening the control system, select the "Back to Machine Origin" menu. The machine tool will automatically return to the mechanical origin and correct the coordinate system. In some cases, such as after the last shutdown, the user does not need to perform a mechanical reset operation. They just need to restart and continue the last operation. When the system exits normally, the current coordinate information will be saved. In addition, if the user confirms that the current location is correct, this operation may not be performed.
3. Before processing, the user generally needs to load the required processing program. Otherwise, some functions related to automatic processing are invalid. Select the "Open (F)|Open (O)..." menu, a Windows file dialog box will pop up, from which you can select the drive, path, and file name where the file to be opened is located. After clicking the "Open" button, the processing program is loaded into the system.
4. Determine the origin of the workpiece, and then manually move the X axis and Y axis of stone CNC machining center to the desired origin position on the workpiece. Next, select the "Set the current point as the workpiece origin" menu, or clear the coordinate value of the current position in the coordinate window. So that the current position is the starting point when the processing program is executed.
