THREAD CYCLE – G32 COMMAND

Contrary to its name, G32 in CNC programming isn’t actually a THREAD CYCLE that automates the entire threading process. It’s a modal command, meaning it affects the machine’s behavior until another command overrides it. According to G32 command, straight thread and taper thread of certain lead are cut.Here’s a breakdown

G05 (non-standard G-code)

The G05 command is a non-standard G-code that is used in some CNC machines for controlling the rotary axes of the machine, such as a rotary table or a rotary head. It is used to move the rotary axis to a specific angle or position, and can be used in

Fixed Cycles

CNC programming cycles, also known as canned cycles, are pre-programmed routines that simplify the programming process by allowing you to use a single command to perform a series of operations. These cycles are used to minimize the amount of code that has to be written and give more control over

G30 Return to Reference Position

G30 is a G-code used to move the machine to a predefined position, typically a reference point or a tool change position. The position is specified by a predefined set of coordinates stored in the CNC system’s memory. This feature is often used to facilitate tool changes or to return

G43/G44/G49 Tool Lenght Compensation

Tool Length Compensation (TLC) is a feature commonly used in computer numerical control (CNC) machining to compensate for variations in tool length during machining operations. It ensures accurate positioning of the tool relative to the workpiece, taking into account the length of the tool. Format G43 Z_ H_;G44 Z_ H_;

G90 / G91 Absolute / Incremental

G90 and G91 are G-codes used to specify the distance mode of a CNC system. G90 sets the distance mode to absolute, meaning that subsequent coordinates in a program will be interpreted as absolute coordinates from the origin point of the machine. G91 sets the distance mode to incremental, meaning

G28 / G29 Return to Home Position

The reference position is a fixed position on a machine tool to which the tool can easily be moved by the reference position return function. For example, the reference position is used as a position at which tools are automatically changed. Up to four reference positions can be specified by

G41 and G42 cutter compensation

G41 and G42 are G-code commands in CNC machining for cutter compensation. This feature adjusts the tool path to consider the tool’s width, ensuring precise cuts.When enabled, the tool moves along a path offset by half the tool diameter, so the cutting edge follows the programmed path. This ensures the

G04 Dwell

By specifying a dwell (G04), the execution of the next cnc program block is delayed by the specified time.A program delayed time can be created at any point within a program. G04 is a non-modal G-code. G04 is from G-code group 00. Some CNC programming cycles have their own dwell

G17, G18, G19 PLANE SELECTION

G17 is used to select the XY plane as the active plane. In this plane, circular interpolation commands (G02 and G03) will move the tool along circular paths defined in the XY plane. G18 is used to select the XZ plane as the active plane. In this plane, circular interpolation
