A canned cycle is a combination of machine movements that perform machining operation like drilling, milling, boring and tapping. This cycle simplifies the program by using a single block with a G-code to specify the machining operations usually specified in several blocks. This cycle is also called as fixed cycle. Canned cycles are traditionally used in making the holes on the complex parts of air crafts and aerospace component manufacturing, electronics instruments, optical or mold making industry.
