Machine Zones

The Time (X) scale can be divided into zones that represent the machine zones in a process defined in units of length or time. Zones can be specified editing or creating a new machine model. Refer to topic Set Machine Information or Create new Machine for more information.

Machine Zones

To display defined zones along the Time (X) scale, select the Show on Profile command on the Machine menu. When zones are displayed, they appear as Magenta and Blue colored lines along the bottom of the data graph and as dotted vertical lines that extend top to bottom. The Magenta zones indicate heating and Blue zones indicate cooling. The first zone begins at the Process Origin. When the Process Origin is moved, the zones move with it.

Important Information

When importing SMG SPC (.MDM) files, the machine zones remain the same zone colors as specified in the original (.MDM) file. If the user edits the imported machine zones, or applies a defined machine to the data run the zone colors will be updated Magenta and Blue.
