Groove cutting with a width greater than the tool diameter can be performed by causing the tool to make continuous circle motion independently of axis movement by the groove cutting path program and superposing the continuous circle motion on the axis movement by the groove cutting path program.

G13.4 P1 Ii Kk Qq Ff; (Mode on)
G12.4 P0 Ii Kk Qq Ff; (Mode cancel)
G13.4 P0 Ii Kk Qq Ff; (Mode cancel)
G12.4 : Clockwise continuous circle motion
G13.4 : Counterclockwise continuous circle motion

i : Groove width
k : Tool diameter
q : Travel distance in the groove cutting direction per continuous circle motion (pitch)
f : Feedrate (speed of the center of a tool that performs continuous circle motion)


If the following program is executed, the center of the tool moves as shown in the figure above.
(This program is merely a sample. The Q and F commands must be determined according to the cutting conditions.)
