Milling alumiunum

Post by udical » Sat Jul 01, 2017 4:00 am

Hi, I would like to ask you one question. Is there option in any Roland software for time break, for spindle to rest for few minutes and then continue? How much machine can mill without break?

In the Roland SRP Player there are no such features.
If programming in NC code then we support the G04 dwell feature, so you could program a Z move up, spindle off, G4 dwelling, then spindle on and continue.
Manually you can pause cutting and then resume.

Thank you, that could be solution. Because sometime seems that machine will not always continue if I press/unpress VIEW, for instance sometime after more then 6 times. Do you know some link were I could learn that other program sir.
