CNC Programming_Preparatory functions

Preparatory functions describe the movement of the tool/machine slides, type of interpolation, type of dimension(inches or mm), to make compensation for variation in tool size, to select the operational mode in absolute or incremental, selection of planes, etc. These functions consist of the letter ‘G’ followed by two digits. These functions are used in blocks followed by Cartesian coordinates (X ….,Y ….,Z ….) while programming manually. These functions can be generated automatically at the time of post processing when using CAM software.

 Some important G – functions are given below.
