Improving the machining quality of parts: Discussion on common tool setting methods of CNC machining centers
Tool setting is the most important operation content in CNC machining. Its purpose is to determine the position of the workpiece coordinate system origin (program origin) in the machine coordinate system through the tool or tool setting tool. Its accuracy will directly affect the machining accuracy of the part. For parts with different shapes and parts with different machining accuracy, the tool setting methods are also different. Based on the experience in teaching and production over the past few years, the author summed up several different tool setting methods to meet the tool setting requirements of different parts.
