CNC macro for Fanuc controls for grooving pulleys with trapezoidal shape. The macro allows the creation of one or more consecutive grooves by simply setting the number and pitch. The function for breaking up the chip in the radial increment cuts is particularly useful.
The macro performs the grooving operations on both straight and inclined sides. It is particularly suitable for grooves for V-belt; in fact, in the geometry definition parameters, the dimensions of the slot refer to the primitive diameter of the pulley. In particular, the macro carries out roughing with radial cutting and finishing operations by profiling along the two sides of the groove. It is possible to choose whether to make a chamfer or a fillet on the upper edge. If more than one groove is to be machined with a constant pitch, simply set the number of grooves and the pitch to repeat the machining on all the grooves.
For better chip management, the macro has a chip break function: by setting the increment value to a non-zero value, it will perform increments with chip breaks in which the macro will perform a small retraction to break and evacuate the chip. Macro for use on all Fanuc controls from series 0 to series 31. Read the manual carefully for correct use, 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.
