The Working Principle
Using the G03/G02 three-axis linkage spiral line, the tool along the surface of the workpiece (hole wall or cylindrical appearance) cutting. After one week of spiral interpolation, the tool Z goes one pitch in the negative direction.
Programming principle: G02 Z-2.5 I3.
Z-2.5 equals a pitch of 2.5mm
Suppose the radius of the tool is 5mm, then process the right-hand screw thread of M16.
The use of a three-axis CNC milling machine or machining center for thread processing, compared with the traditional thread processing.
1. Such as the pitch of the 2 thread milling cutter can process a variety of nominal diameters, the pitch of 2mm internal and external threads.
2. Using milling mode processing thread, thread quality than the traditional way processing quality is higher.
3. It’s used as a machine clip blade tool, for a long lifetime.
4. Multi-tooth thread milling cutter processing, processing speed is far more than tapping.
5. After the first check, the processing quality of the parts behind is stable.
