The Study on Evaluation of Hybrid Drilling Command under Deep Hole Drilling


Article Preview

The hybrid drilling command was proposed in this study. The hybrid drilling command is established by combined the merit of G73 (high speed peck drilling cycle) and G83 (small hole peck drilling cycle) using custom macro command. The concept of hybrid drilling command is to divide the total drilling depth into several distances and its distance is shortened gradually. The drilling chip is breaking with the G73 in the distance between each one and banishing from the hole with the G83 after drilling a distance each time. The evaluation on the merit of hybrid drilling command was carried out by deep hole drilling test on CNC machine center. After experiments, the hybrid drilling command can reduce wearing, extending the tool life of the driller and shorten processes time.
