- Before starting, create separate backups of NC and PMC/PLC files.
- Ensure that the machine is in working order before starting work. The machine should not display any unusual error messages when it is switched on.
- Ensure that the machine is a a defined state, before creating the archives. It must be a state which one can easily restore before restoring a backup.
At Siemens controls e.g. it is a good practice ask the machine to put the current tool into the tool magazine, before creating the backups. This helps to retrieve a defined machine state under several aspects.
The archives created in this section make it possible to reset the machine to its original status. They save your live. Create them.
