Drill Bank Faster

Postby Thom Davies » Sun, Nov 06 2005, 9:59PM

Hey how's it all going?

I want to speed up the drill bank on the thermwood and wondering what speeds other users have them set to. Cos i find the drilling to be very slow now and want it to dart from hole to hole quickly to save time

Thanks for any ideas

Hi Tom,

Typically, a feedrate of approx. 150 IPM is used to plunge when drilling holes. Then, a rapid (G0) retract and index move can be used to reposition the machine. Note: If there is an M48 command active in the program, this will severly slow the rapid movements.
