Hole Milling Optimize Feedrate

 

 

Hello All

 

I miss the optimize feedrate check box in the hole_mill operations... Are they really removed?

 

NX 8.5NX 8.5NX 10NX 10Is any workaround possible?

 

We use Nx10.0.3.5 MP4

 

Thanks for your help

Hi Bernhard,

 

These type of operations (hole milling, thread milling, ...) have never supported feedrate optimization. The availability of this option -doing nothing- has been confusing. This is corrected by removing it from the user interface (version NX9). 

 

Thanks,

Thank you for your quick answer.

I try now an optimization on the machine. 

I think a optimization could be a good enhancement for these types ofoperations. It would encrease the tool life a lot.

What kind of optimization of a drilling tool path are you thinking of?

For me drilling is always using the correct feed rate, since there is only one available in a drilling cycle.

 

If you do gun drilling, then you need to use a different operation, that supports recognition of cross holes and IPW to slow down before a cross hole and speed up after it, which is available in NX 10.0.3

Stefan -

He's talking about hole MILLING.

So I would assume he has all the normal milling feedrates.

Re: Hole Milling Optimize Feedrate

Hello
Of course all drilling operations need the correct feedrate.
But the operations hole_milling, thread_milling... are operations with a spiral/helical toolpath. A optimization on a spiral/helical movements would make sense in my opinion.

We do have separate method groups with different cut methods defined for hole milling depending on the hole milling task, so we can use regular tools with different feeds & speeds Smiley Wink

Thread milling is using different tools, so one can directly assign feeds & speeds to the tool or use a different tool material to get different feeds & speeds for these tools based on the used part material, if there needs to be a difference.

Hi Bernhard,

 

Feedrate optimization (as meant with the toggle) is about feedrate optimization based on step over and depth of cut. What you are describing here is about "feedrate adjustment on arcs".

 

 

 

There are a couple of open ER's on this subject...
