Center Probing cycles

This probing cycle is available from both inside and outside probing cycle pages.

It is used to locate the center of an object such as a hole or a pocket.

The probing will occur at the speed entered in the Probing Feedrate box 

Probing the center of an object is an automatic 4 probe cycle process and after each touching the side the probe will rapid back to the stating position of the next probing before starting the next probe.

Enter the Probe diameter into the Probe Diameter box 

X & Y offsets can be used to compensate for errors eg. your probe needs to move 5mm to register a touch off. 

The probing cycle can be stopped by pressing the same or a different probing cycle button.


INFORMATION: You can only probe the inside of a part to find center. You cannot probe the outside of a part to find center.
