    Question Best way to check and adjust drill depths on Morbidelli Author 636 Top?

    I have 6 5mm drills that I replaced recently. I've been making it work but they are all drilling a little too deep. What is the best way to check the depth on the drills? I know how to adjust them in def.tlg but not sure how to check the actual depth to make sure I'm adjusting the right tool. Could I just draw 6 5 mm holes in a row (32mm apart of course)? Would the machine do one drop to drill all 6 holes or would it try to use the same tool for all 6? Thanks in advance.

    That depends on how it's programmed. There are two different drilling operations.
    Look in the Guide Topics in Xilog Plus under Help.
    There's B (boring), which will drill with the specified bit.
    Then BO (Optimised boring), which can use any tools that it wants.

    What is the best way to check the depth on the drills? I know how to adjust them in def.tlg
    You need to set them all to the same length, or the Optimised boring won't be able to use multiple tools, because they are different lengths
    What I do, is program 6 holes 32mm apart, and program to drill about .002" deep. Then manually adjust the length of each one, using the screw in the bottom of the bit, until they are all pretty close. Once they are all the same, adjust the length in the software so that the spurs are just barely cutting into the surface.

    That's how I do it.

    You can use several B functions. Each for every drill.
    Or only one function B and set tool in T field drills that you want.
    For example XB X=20 Y=20 Z=5 T=6 7 8
    In this case drils 6,7 and 8 will be lowered. If measures are different use procedure as ger21 explained

    Thanks. I ended up figuring out that when I manually adjusted the drill length, I had to take all of them all the way down. Greatly appreciated advice though!
