Pecking Retraction

Friday, June 4, 2010

Dear Answer Man, With the G73 high-speed peck cycle, what setting needs to be changed if I require the drill to retract 0.100" in the hole? Right now, the drill is only moving a really small amount, and chips are packing up in the flutes. I could use G83, but I don’t want the tool to come completely out of the hole while it is drilling. Sincerely, Jeremy [...]

Utilizing High Speed Machining Option on a VMC

Dear Answer Man, We are investigating the purchase of a Haas VMC with the High-Speed Machining option. Are special G codes needed for HSM, i.e., G05, G06, G06.1 as used in a GE control for NURBS interpolation? HSM hardware is typically faster, i.e., speeds, feeds, etc. What would be the difference in software? [...]

The Project Triangle: fast, good, cheap. Choose two. You can’t have all three. This used to be the engineering designer’s dilemma, and the beginning of the buyer’s frustration. But, when you combine the speed of the Internet, the power of cleverly designed software, and the flexibility and precision of Haas CNC machine tool technology, the [...]

In 1978, after the first global oil shock, American author Maurice Berkley Green published a book entitled Eating Oil, documenting how food production in the western nations had come to be entirely and excessively dependent on oil. In the intervening 30 years, and despite Green’s warning, that dependence has increased [...]

High-Speed Machining

The high-speed machining option in the Haas control works by analyzing the change in vector direction, or change in angle, from one block to the next. When the change in vector direction is very small, as with code produced by using a small cut tolerance value, the control can interpolate the motion at a higher feedrate than when the change in vector direction is greater. The greater [...]
