Macro to carry out face milling on cylinders. A simple programming block automatically executes the face milling cuts, taking into account the engagement of the milling cutter and creating an optimised path that follows the cylindrical surface.
The macro performs the cylinder face milling by automatically calculating an optimised path that follows the cylindrical surface, reducing production time and providing fast and safe programming. Suitable for face milling of surfaces on cylinders, such as supply planes on valves or hydraulic cylinders, operating keys on rods, planes for grease fittings.
The macro automatically calculates the depth and width cuts on the basis of the milling cutter. In fact, in addition to following the cylindrical surface, it automatically calculates the cuts to achieve the required surface. Thanks to this macro, the programming time will be reduced and also the execution time by creating an optimised path. Macro valid for all Fanuc controls from series 0 to series 31. Please read the manual, paying attention to the “Warnings” section.
How do I know what exactly the macro does?
Click on the ‘MANUAL’ icon to find the macro documentation with examples and parameter descriptions. Pay particular attention to the last paragraph ‘Warnings’.
After how long do I receive the macro?
After clicking on the buy button you will be directed to the purchase page. If you pay by credit card or PAYPAL, at the end of the process you will find in your personal area the macro ready for downloading with its manual and parameter diagram. If you pay by bank transfer, the macro will only be available once the amount has been credited.
How do I load the macro into the machine?
The macros for sale online do not require our presence for installation. Once purchased, the macro will be loaded onto your CNC machine just like a normal programme. To transfer the programme to the machine tool, use the method already in use on your machine (SERIAL, USB, PCMCI, NETWORK).
On how many machines in my workshop can I use the macro?
With the purchase of the machine you also acquire the licence to use the macro for all the machines in your workshop. It is not possible to sell or transfer the macro to third parties. For more information, please read the contractual conditions carefully.
Why are some macros not saleable online?
Some macros are marked ‘NOT SELLABLE ONLINE’ because they require the presence of a technician for installation. This is the case, for example, when customised screens for entering parameters have to be installed.
