TwinCAT CNC Axis Commissioning G97 Deselection of constant cutting speed , selection of spindle speed (modal, default) Using the G-functions G96, G97 and G, the interpretation of the S-word (or S-strings) can be optionally changed.

Or sign in with one of these services. It will be slow at the OD, and as it moves closer to X0, it will speed up until it hits the max spindle speed.

You know when you face a part on a CNC Lathe and you hear that change in pitch? So if you programme. I am in the process of buying another g79 lathe but want to keep using this one if it is possible to fix it. Sign up for a new account in our community. I know what it is, and I have always cc the concept. By closing this banner, scrolling this page, clicking a link or continuing to browse otherwise, you agree to the use of cookies.

These wheels varied in diameter from about 6 inches to a massive 2 foot one. Website Developed By Jabberdog. Theres a difference, dont put words in my mouth. I have tried to explain the advantages as far as the increase of tool life as long as G96 is used properly but they continue to reject this mode.

Well the spindle will be flat out! I had read an article sometime back in your newsletter on this subject but I cannot remember which issue it was in. I use it when I teach a class on the basic principles of machining. Note that there is a special function that lets you set a temporary maximum rpm G50 with Fanuc. On a manual machine you have to compromise. If an accurate speed in rpm is to be used, the person calculating the rpm must first determine the tool’s appropriate speed in surface feet per minute note that the formula is different when working in the metric mode.


G96 S M3 Your machine would start up at a surface speed of metres a minute. My next question is, how does it determine G97? However, when you program to use G96 in Mastercam, you will see an initial G97 move at the toolchange.

This is a surface speed. Posted December 7, In constant surface speed mode, the spindle speed in rpm is automatically determined by the CNC control based upon the diameter a tool is currently cutting and the speed specified in surface feet per minute or meters per minute in metric mode.

But you must remember to use it and know the maximum rpm a workpiece can be rotated without vibration.

Many continue using the seat-of-the-pants approach even on CNC turning centers when it is safe to run optimum spindle speeds. At this point the constant surface speed mode is cnv with the proper speed in sfm. You need to be a member in order to leave a comment.

G96 and G97 are mutually exclusive: G97 S M3 Your chuck will start revolving clockwise at rpm. If you program G96 S Mike, For Fanuc controlled turning centers, G96, of course, specifies constant surface speed mode, while G97 g9 rpm mode. Industrial Forum Existing user? It can cause the workpiece to be thrown from the workholding device.

There are many converters online that you can use y97 this and I do recommend their use. I have been trying to get the guys on the floor to use G96 for these parts but they have always programmed with G As the tool rapids to a smaller diameter, the spindle speed will ncc in rpm. Mori Seiki Sl-1 G96 G97 missing. Wasn’t trying to take a shot at you.


I wasn’t clear on what to change, I thought that changing G97 had an effect on the way it works.

G96, G97 and How To Calculate Surface Speeds

Now your RPM would depend on where on the diameter the tool was positioned. Harold could only run so fast but I noticed when he was on the small 6 inch wheel it absolutely whizzed around. Watch the video to see how surface speeds are translated to speeds in RPM.

They kept him happy all night.

Basic Turning G96 G97 – CNC Programmer Training

The 1st time I programmed a lathe was when I started my own shop in 05, before that I had never programmed a lathe. All parameters look cncc and I have re entered them all. The same is true during each tool’s approach.

How does someone b96 been programming for 10 years not know what constant surface speed is? Poor workholding setups – Since speed in rpm is difficult to determine when working in constant surface speed mode, it should only be used when making adequate setups.

I’ve only programmed Haas lathes and I’ve always gotten the following code: One of the reasons why manual machinists have trouble getting used to constant surface speed mode is that they cannot predict what rpm the spindle will be running.
