|This task shows how to insert a
Drilling Break Chips operation in the program.
To create the operation you must define:
HoleMakingOperations.CATPart document, then select the desired
Make the Manufacturing Program current in the specification tree.
Select Drilling Break Chips
A Drilling Break Chips entity along with a default tool is added to the program.
The Drilling Break Chips dialog box appears directly at the Geometry tab page . This tab page includes a sensitive icon to help you specify the geometry of the hole or hole pattern to be machined.
Select the red hole depth representation then select the hole feature as
Just double click to end your selections.
The sensitive icon is updated with the following information:
|3.||If needed, you can invert the tool axis direction by selecting the axis representation in the sensitive icon.|
Strategy tab page
to specify the
following machining parameters:
The other parameters are optional in this case.
|A tool is proposed
by default when you want to create a machining operation.
If the proposed tool is not suitable, just select the Tool tab page to specify the tool you want to use.
Remember that you can make use of the hole diameter found on the selected hole feature to select an appropriate tool. This is described in Edit the Tool of an Operation.
Feeds and Speeds tab page
to specify the
feedrates and spindle speeds for the operation.
Note that in the tool path represented in the strategy page, tool motion is as follows:
Distance (1,2) = A + Dc
|6.||If you want to specify approach and retract motion for the operation, select the Macros tab page to specify the desired transition paths. The general procedure for this is described in Define Macros of an Axial Machining Operation.|
|Before accepting the operation, you should check its validity by replaying the tool path.|
|7.||Click OK to create the operation.|
If your PP table is customized with the following statement for Drilling Break Chips operations:
You can use Edit Cycle to edit or choose output syntaxes. For more information please refer to Editing Cycle Syntaxes in Axial Machining Operations.
The parameters available for PP word syntaxes for this type of operation are described in the NC_BREAK_CHIPS section of the Manufacturing Infrastructure User's Guide.
