How to Hand-Program a Bushing on a CNC Lathe - PART 1
In this first video of our new series, Marc from G-code Tutor writes a full bush program on a CNC lathe and explains everything he does, block by block.
We start our first video by writing the header information. This section is designed to help the operator set the machine how it was intended to be set. With tooling and set-up info right there at the start of the program, the operator will be able to set the machine quickly and correctly every time even without set-up sheets. There are many ways to write this section of the program, and there is no right or wrong way to do it. Marc shows the information he includes in his program headers to give you a base to build upon with your own style.
