Introduction:
The purpose of this quick reference manual is to explain the most
commonly used functions on the QCJ5 and IsoPro. This manual
will not serve as a replacement for the QCJ5 manual, more of a
supplement. This manual should be kept in close proximity to the
Machine for easy reference as to what each function indicates.

Tool pod desiginations


The Tool Pods are designed to be numbered starting from the
bottom left pod (1) increasing towards the rear of the machine,
once you reach the top of the column of pods return to the first
pod in the column to the right until all have been counted. While
inserting the tools according to the tool page.

Right-Click Menu
Right clicking in the main window and selecting the Machine
cursor menu gives you the following display.
Jump to Cursor Moves the head assembly to the current X,Y
position of the cursor.
Machine Net After right clicking on an entity, the machine mills all
entities contained in connected the net.
Test Depth of Cut Allows you to test the depth of cut of a pointed
milling tool. This feature is not available if the machine has not been
initialized.
Mill to End If you need to stop machining on a board before the

entire layer is finished, this feature allows to specify a new starting


point and select Mill to End to finish machining the layer entities.

Mill Drop Down Menu


The Mill drop down menu is probably the most used function in
the menu bar. A brief description of each item associated with this
menu is given below.
Initialize / Re-Initialize Prepares IsoPro to run Quick Circuit and
zeroes the machine.
Setup > Adjust Pin Position Adjusts the Y-position of the pin to
improve hole-to-pad registration on double-sided boards. This is a
fine adjustment used with the Set Pin Position feature.
Setup > Material Sets chip load and surface speed.
Setup > Set Pin Position Sets pin position with respectto the current
head position.
Use the Adjust Pin Position feature to fine-tune the head position.
Run Layer Allows user to select a layer to be machined.
Mill Selected Machines the selected entities on a layer.
Pause Temporarily stops operations to give the user control
of the machine.
Stop Stops operations on the milling table.
Tool Change Brings the head assembly to the front of machine
to allow for tool change.
Material Change Sends the head assembly to the back of
machine to allow for material change. The Material Change position
is determined by the size of the board.

QUICK CIRCUIT J5 Spindle Height Reference

Information:
The Maximun Z Stroke positive extreme is the machines Z axis home postion
The Rapid Plane is set at a distance above (or below) the Material Height. The actual distance amount
is defined by the user. NOTE: The Rapid Plane is used to allow the QCJ5 to move at full traverse
down to the Rapid Plane, then slow down to the user-defined feed rate before entry into the material.
The Material Height is defined as the top of the work piece. NOTE: The Material Height must be defined
whenever material has been added, fiipped over, or adjusted in any way.
The Depth Of Cut is defined as the depth the tool will cut into the material.
The Plate Height is defined as the top of the QCJ5 Table Top. This also sets the Maximum Z Stroke length.
NOTE: This is set by the factory, and should not be adjusted.

Diagnostic commands :

CTRL+SHIFT+F9 : Check Skipped Steps


CTRL+SHIFT+F12 : Force Initialization !!Only use when the machine
is resting at home for certain!!
CTRL+SHIFT+H : Display Home Position
