I was wondering if there was a way to create a UDE that would increase the spindle speed and synchronization feed of a rigid tapping cycle when reversing out of a hole. This could save a ton of time when tapping multiple deep holes at zero cost.
Is there a way to do this and could you provide an example of a way to add this if it is possible?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Fom what I've seen this is controlled by the machine, unless you have a Siemens control, where you can SST1 to specify a retraction speed (param may change depending on exactly which Siemens control you have, and what version it is).
On Mazak machines I've seen you can specify H parameter on G84 (again, this may depend on machine/control version).
Other machines it is not controllable (at least not in the program, there may be a param you can set on the control to boost the retract speed)
I use a UDE to specify this value.
Production: NX10.0.3.5 MP5 + patch/TC11.2
I'd rather be e-steemed than e-diseaseled
This should be part of the cycle in the CNC control. You cna check the programming manual for a parameter for the cycle, but I doubt there is one. On some controls you can edit the subroutine for the cycle.
