Block skip function

The block skip function is a feature in CNC machines that allows the operator to skip over specific blocks of code in the program during the machining process. This can be useful in situations where certain parts of the program are not needed, or if there is an error in the program that needs to be bypassed.

To use the block skip function, you will first need to identify the specific blocks of code that you want to skip. This can be done by reviewing the program and identifying the line numbers or block numbers of the code you want to skip.

Program example:

O0001
N10 G00 G90 X0 Y0 Z0
N20 G01 G91 Z-10 F100
N30 G01 X10 Y10 F200
N50 G01 X-10 Y-10 F200
N60 G01 X20 Y20 F200
N70 G00 Z10
N80 M30

In this example, the program starts by moving the machine to the origin point (N10). It then moves down in the Z-axis to a depth of -10 (N20), and then moves in the X and Y axes to a position of (10, 10) (N30).

At this point, the operator realizes that there is an error in the program and wants to skip block N50. To do this, they enter the block skip command (“/”) followed by the block number (N50) into the control panel. The updated program looks like this:

O0001
N10 G00 G90 X0 Y0 Z0
N20 G01 G91 Z-10 F100
N30 G01 X10 Y10 F200
/ N50 G01 X-10 Y-10 F200
N60 G01 X20 Y20 F200
N70 G00 Z10
N80 M30

When the operator executes the program, the machine will skip over block N50 and continue with block N60. The machine will move to the position of (20, 20) in the X and Y axes (N60), move up in the Z-axis to a height of 10 (N70), and then end the program (N80).
It’s important to note that this is just an example, and the specific blocks of code that are skipped will depend on the requirements of the machining operation and the programmer’s needs. for the skip to be executed the switch “SKIP BLOC” must be activated on the machine.
