(Note) Chamfering cannot be specified.
(Note) Specify the end point and start point of the thread as the following figure.
(Note) T-argument is nou used for the tool offset in this cycle.
(Note) In this cycle, G41/G42 is cancelled.
(Note) In this cycle, chamfering can not be specified. It, therefore, must
considerrate the incorrect thread length when the thread figure is
(2) The detail of
the process data
B Machining area 0=Outer, 1=Inner
(When “B_” is not specified, “machining area” is equal to B0)
0= Specify arguments as X Diameter and Z Radius
1= Specify arguments as X Radius and Z Radius
(In case of using the PMC signal for selecting Diameter/
Radius, this argument cannot be used. )
E Cut times/ Cut amount + Lead/ Num. of thread
Cut amount=0, Cut times=10
Lead=0, Num. of thread=100
(When “E__” is not specified, Cut amount and Lead are selected.
Refer to the following table.)
Argument E Q cut amount Q number of cuts L lead of thread
L number of
thread per inch
E0. Applied Not Applied Not
E10. Not Applied Applied Not
E100. Applied Not Not Applied
E110. Not Applied Not Applied
R Thread type Specify the type of thread
General=1, Metric=2, Unified=3
(When “R_” is not specified, P/S alarm will occur)
General type is the same as conventional threading. In case of
using the tool tip angle except 60.0 degrees, specify General type. In
Metric and Unified type, the angle is fixed to 60.0 degrees.
Metric type is performed according to the metric thread standard. In
case of specifying the lead of thread in “mm” units, specify Metric
