Cant remember the start lines on basic program for a fanuc controler on a lathe. I have a small silver book on the canned cycles but ive mislaid my basic programing notes as it was a few years ago when i had training.Can anybody help please.
you need to state metric / english ? G20 G21 or if an old machine G70 / G71 71= metric absolute G90 or incremental G91 then you need a datum !!! FIRST RULE OF ENGINEERING ? ESTABLISH A DATUM ! will this be under a G54 X / Z ? I use
X ???? Z ???
Which control? What lathe? It can make a difference. I see you are in the UK. G20/G21 should already be set to metric by default, so no need to program this code unless you are going to switch back and forth between the two. Highly unlikely. Don't you have a manual for the lathe?
