CNC Canned Cycle – Milling
The last time we saw CNC Canned cycles for Drilling, Milling isn’t very different from that. Since milling machines and drilling machines used for CNC jobs aren’t different, the G codes used – G81 is also the same. Its function is the Fanuc drilling cycle.
The only difference between both is the motion of the tool and how it removes material. While drilling, its motion is vertical where the tool removes material to dig a hole. In milling, the motion is horizontal in nature and the material is removed layer-wise. Get a better idea of what milling is here.
There are multiple other G Codes used for mills, which help out with other tasks on the milling machine. They are –
