Setting Coolant Through directly in the Tools

Creator
Creator

Hi guys,

 

I've been thinking about this a few time. I saw in the Tools options a tab "More" with tracking, offset, some options, in this tab have the "Coolant Through" to set. I searched all mom variables possibles in the Post Builder and used the Review Tool to find this and I never found where this command is actived.

I would like to set this in my posts, with this I'll solve a problem of forget the correct M code in the tools that needs to work with the coolant through. I'll define the right code in the correct tools and avoided to use the UDE in all operations.

 

Could anyone help me?

 

Thanks!

Hi,

There is variable for that check box for sure.

When you turn review tool on, notice created "....debug .out" file.

Do postprocess twice. First with "coolant through" check box ON and second with check box OFF.

Compare these two "...debug.out" files (in some editor) and you will find the difference=

mom_tool_coolant_through (Yes/No)

While you are playing with coolant...

Note the deep hole drilling operation adds a "flow" parameter

global mom_coolant_flow      ;# values = "LOW", "MEDIUM", "HIGH"

@Ken_A , interesting. In the machines here I can't set the intensity of the coolant, but I can set through and flood in the same operation. Here I have one Mazak HCN and three VCN.

 

@Juraj , I did the custom here and now working fine! Thanks!
