is there easy way to control coolant ?? simple check box?

Most milling machines would turn of coolant and then use air blast to keep coolant of the spindle bearings perform tool change than turn on coolant on for next tool.

 

1st Question: is there a way to do this in post automatically?

so basically on every tool change I want to turn coolant off before tool change and turn coolant on after tool change

 

Exemple:


N4 (TOOL NO. 4 - DRILLING_TOOL_.07)
(**********************)
T04 M06
G00 G90 G54 X-.495 Y.98 S5000 M03
G43 Z.97 H04 T3 M08
G98 G81 X-.495 Y.98 Z-.03 R.07 F6.
G98 G81 X-.095 Y.98 Z-.1425 R.07
X.095 Y-.98
X.495
G80
G00 Z.97 M09
M05

 

2nd Question:

 

tool preselect,I have hard time putting tool preselect on right line I want to have preselect happend after H01 like this G43 Z1.045 H01 T2

 

Exemple:

N1 (TOOL NO. 1 - ENDMILL_.25)
(**********************)
T01 M06
G00 G90 G54 X-1.5282 Y-.6754 S5000 M03
G43 Z1.045 H01 T2
M08
Z.1
G01 Z0.0 F25.

One way would be to add the coolant off (M9) block to the auto tool change event before the M6 block. Then add G43 line along with the M8 to the initial move event along with the T code for next tool.

Hi John,

I could not get back in lost my "screen name" ......

I tried playing with post builder and you suggestion and got thing to work partially.
it would turn off coolant but then it wouldn't turn on coolant on next tool change.

tool preselect, ... is nightmare tried adding G43 M08 on initial move and its not on right spot

I wonder why such a simple thing is so complicated! they could add check button in operation menu next to where you would pick a tool checked = coolant on unchecked coolant off

back to Machine control start of the event many and 2 dialog boxes and 14 clicks before i can turn coolant on or off

You can place the block in the initial move.
We are using the Rapid Move event to output the XY then
the Z and G43 H01 and M08
We have the G43 H01 and M08 blocks as optional


I don't know how to post an image in a reply to this forum.
