Explanation
- Operation
The high-speed peck drilling cycle performs intermittent feeding along
the Z-axis. When this cycle is used, chips can be removed from the
hole easily, and a smaller value can be set for retraction. This allows,
drilling to be performed efficiently.
Set the clearance, d, in parameter 6210.
The tool is retracted in rapid traverse.
- Spindle rotation
Before specifying G73, rotate the spindle using a miscellaneous
function (M code).
