CNC programming handbook : a comprehensive guide to by Peter Smid

By Peter Smid

Over its first versions, this best-selling publication has turn into the de facto average for education and reference fabric in any respect degrees of CNC programming. utilized in hundreds of thousands of academic associations worldwide because the fundamental textual content for CNC classes, and used day-by-day through many in-field CNC programmers and computing device operators, this publication actually defines CNC programming. Written with cautious cognizance to element, there aren't any compromises. the various adjustments during this new 3rd version are the direct results of reviews and recommendations obtained from many CNC execs within the box. This terribly finished paintings is still full of over a thousand illustrations, tables, formulation, guidance, shortcuts, and sensible examples.

The enclosed CD-ROM now encompasses a absolutely useful 15-day shareware model of CNC device course editor/simulator, NCPlot™. This robust, easy-to-learn software program contains an awesome array of positive aspects, many now not present in aggressive items. NCPlot deals an unrivaled mix of simplicity of use and richness of gains. aid for plenty of complicated regulate concepts is average, together with a macro interpreter that simulates Fanuc and comparable macro programs.

The CD-ROM additionally deals many education workouts according to person chapters, in addition to suggestions and unique factors. distinct programming and machining examples are supplied to boot, in type of whole computer records, beneficial as genuine programming assets. nearly all documents use Adobe PDF structure and are set to excessive solution printing.


  • absolutely sensible shareware model of CNC toolpath simulator/editor, NCPlot(TM), incorporated at the CD-ROM. This robust software program comprises an grand array of beneficial properties, together with these now not present in aggressive items. help for plenty of complicated beneficial properties is normal, and the integrated macro interpreter can simulate Fanuc and appropriate macro toolpath programs

  • Detailed part on CNC lathes with stay tooling, together with examples

  • Image records of many real components, used as examples

  • extra programming examples (both in revealed textual content and at the CD-ROM)

  • Optimized for the most recent Fanuc and comparable keep an eye on systems

  • Additional formulation, calculations and convenient reference material

  • Fourth axis programming (indexing and rotary)

  • CD-ROM established tasks, together with numerous as interactive PDF forms

  • Improved index for greater seek of topics

Sample text

A plane is a term used in 2D applications, while a solid object is used in 3D applications. Mathematical definition of a plane is: A plane is a surface in which a straight line joining any two of its points will lie wholly on the surface From the top viewpoint of the observer, looking straight down on the illustration Figure 4-3, a viewing direction is established. This is often called viewing a plane. Origin Figure 4-4 Point of origin - intersection of axes This intersection called origin has a rather special meaning in CNC programming.

This origin point acquires a new name, one typically called the program reference point. Other terms are also used: program zero, part reference point, workpiece zero, part zero, and probably a few others - all with the same meaning and same purpose. u Y-axis Quadrants Viewing the two intersecting axes and the new plane, four distinct areas can be clearly identified. Each area is bounded by two axes. These areas are called quadrants. Mathematically defined, X-axis Figure 4-3 Axis designation - viewing a plane Mathematical designation is fully implemented in CNC A plane is a 2D entity - the letter X identifies its horizontal axis, the letter Y identifies its vertical axis.

Make sure that all persons who work on such a machine are aware of the changes. CONTROL SYSTEM u Spindle Speed Override The same logic used for the application of rapid rate override can be used for the spindle speed override. The required change can be established during actual cutting by using the spindle speed override switch, located on the machine control panel. For example, if the programmed spindle speed of 1000 r/min is too high or too low, it may be changed temporarily by the switch. During actual cutting, the CNC operator may experiment with the spindle speed override switch to find the optimum speed for given cutting conditions.
