Here are some Okuma Captain 1200 program samples for work with live tooling.
Samples are quite big so READ full article
Resources and Software For High-Performance CNC Machinists
As part of FS Wizard's development. 2 drills were tested today on T6061 Aluminum.
0.312 Dia and 0.390 Dia Dormer A002 Drill Jobber Drill with TiN coated tip.
Hole depth for both was 3.0"".
Peck equaled 1xDia
Speeds and Feeds for 0.312 Dia drill were
Tool:0.281 dia 0 helix TIN coated carbide drill
Recenty ordered a 3Flute High Performance End Mill From NIAGARA.
Was very glad and slightly surprised that when punched in all of the endmill's data into my Calculator nothing broke down.I had a rason: At 5000RPM and 3/8" Deep slot cut. The feed came to around 92.0IPM. Chips were making this nice ringing noise that sounds like money.
Hudrolic Tribos Holder
3/4" 45DegHelix 3Flute 1.625FluteLen, 2.375"Overhang TICN HP End mill
DOC: 0.375" Slotting
The calculation was pretty much dead on.
A need arouse to drill and tap lots of blind 1/4-20 holes in 3/4" thick hardox 45-50RC hard plate.
So if you ever need to do this use:
Tap hole: >0.202" or bigger. 5/8 deep.
Drill used: Tialn coated carbide drill.
NO Peck, No Coolant
Renishaw OTS tool probe cycle for HAAS can set both length and diameter offsets.
Too bad there is no choice: it only puts absolute measured diameter of the tool into D- diameter offset and makes wear offset=0
But if your programming is done with the center of the cutter, then you actually only need the difference between actual and programmed diameters of the tool.
I.E.: When probing 5/8Dia end mill, we get D=0.6248. You would normally have to subtract 5/8 from it and leave the -0.0002 difference.
But there is an easier way
Problem: Work offset G54 Z0 shows some "weird number" which is very hard to relate to.
Can we make top of fixture show Z0=0.000 ?
