    Default Programming For OSP 5000 L-G and Dwell Question

    Hi Everybody,
    I'm in a new job, and I'm writing programs for an old Okuma LB 10 with an OSP 5000 L-G control. I don't have a book available to explain things to me, so I'm figuring it out as I go. One question I have relates to dwell. I know I can use G4 for dwell, but is there another way to do it? I ask because I don't understand the use of the letter E in lines of code. Here's a few lines copied from a program to show what I'm asking about.

    N0155G00X0.3
    N0156G01Z0.05G42E0.006
    N0157Z0.0005
    N0158X0.35E0.006
    N0159X0.389Z-0.02E0.006
    N0160Z-0.197
    N0161X0.35Z-0.220

    What does the E0.006 do?

    Thanks for any help I get with this.

    Charlie

    I've been doing some reading of manuals I've run across, and it just might be another way to specify a feed rate.

    E also defines dwell time, but the function of the letter E changes depending on what kind of cycle is being used.

    E0.006 is feedrate.
