Lathe threading cycle G76 <LATHETHREAD>


<LATHETHREAD(403)> Lathe multipass threading canned cycle G76 is used to form a single line command that specifies all threading parameters. The desired threading depth is achieved by automatic multiple passes. Cycle parameters include threading start and end point coordinates, conical angle (for taper threading), chamfer dimensions, pressure angles, threading depth, pass count, cut-in strategy, etc.
