Peck tapping in NX?

Creator
Creator

Hi all,

 

I am wondering whether it is possible to produce a peck tapping cycle using NX? (Currently using NX10). The production team in my company now have a need to use it but are currently manually editing the programs which is obviously not ideal.

 

Has anybody ever produced a peck tapping cycle using NX?

 

Grateful for any help / information.

 

Thank you

And in this cycle there are some parameters for setting.

Hi @Juraj

 

Thanks for your reply. 

 

At the moment, when using the "drill,tap" option we get the following output...

 

N0020 TAP_M4_HOLES
N0030 S1000 M03
N0040 G91 G28 Z0.0
N0050 T03 M06
N0060 G00 G90 X90. Y30. S1000
N0070 G43 Z26.1 H00
N0080 G84 X90. Y30. Z-16. R2.5 F700.
N0090 G80
N0100 G00 Z26.1
N0110 M02

 

What I need is for the output to be the same as the above but with a Q value added to the G84 line.

 

When I select the "Drill, Tap, Deep" option and enter a step distance of 1.0mm (just for test purposes) i get the following output...

 

N0020 TAP_M4_HOLES
N0030 S1000 M03
N0040 G91 G28 Z0.0
N0050 T03 M06
N0060 G00 G90 X90. Y30. S1000
N0070 G43 Z26.1 H00
N0080 G80
N0090 G00
N0100 M02

 

...which is incorrect.

 

I created a very quick and simple Fanuc post from the library on Post Builder for test purposes. 

 

Any ideas how i can achieve the output i require? Very new to this so apologies if the answer is very simple. 

 

Thank you

Likely the one in the library is not set up for the cycle.

In the "post" dialog, turn on the review tool

post

looks for the cycle events that SHOULD output the cycle, but don't

figure out from there?

you need to "uplevel" this other tapping cycle MOM event/events in start of program section in postprocesor

 

Probably in OOTB postprocessors you can find example how to do it.
