    96-0040 revH 04/046PROGRAMMING THE APLOverviewThe APL comes with 6 templates, programs O5000-O5004 and O5008. These programs are designed to helpthe programmer position parts in and out of the spindle by following step by step instructions. As the systemand program becomes more familiar these e...

    96-0040 revH 04/047Note:The APL always picks up raw material in one jaw and finished parts in theother. This means that similar positions are programmed twice in order toproperly pick up the parts. As finished pieces are shaped differently,different gripper clamping and gripper position may be n...

    96-0040 revH 04/0485. Jog the gripper into a position where it will pick up the first piece. The first piece is the left-most piececlosest to the operator on the table. It will be necessary to move all of the APL’s axes in order to safely pick upa part. Move the table back and forth, V-axis, T...
