I get a lot of questions about how to use CNC because of my website.
A shop owner named Jose has an older machine and asked by phone how to use rigid tapping. Unfortunately, I could not make out his phone number, so I hope he sees this.
He has an older Fanuc 0T control and to the best of my knowledge has no real rigid tapping cycles.
Fortunately, since his and all controls have threading by G32 or G33, he can make up a sequence which to all effects is the same as rigid tapping.
G97 S500 M3
G0 X0 Z1.0
G32 Z-.5 F.0313
G32 F.0313 M4
G0 X6.0 Z6.0 M9
This should work fine with the tap mounted solid, no float.
All of you, take a look and tell me and everyone else what you think.
