Sequential drilling with bore cycles

Solution Partner Creator Solution Partner Creator

Hi,
We can only use interrupted option when motion output selected as single moves. The bore cycle is in the machine cycle.
Is there a way to add a boring cycle to the sequential drilling operation.

I'd have to see the documentation of the machine's boring cycle that you want to use.

All the ones I am familiar with (Okuma, Fanuc, Mazak, Siemens 840D) only go (once) to the bottom of the hole, then retract completely out - they don't "go slow thru material" *and* "go fast thru air".

 

If that's what you want (a G8x or G7x cycle), don't use the Sequential drill operation - use a "regular" bore cycle.

Legacy PTP operations ignore all the gaps.

I'm not sure what to do that in holemaking (assuming it is possible) to ignore the gaps (I haven't played with it that much...)
