Benefits and Description

For additional bottom clearance, there is a new parameter to regulate the height. The tool stops above any horizontal surface while machining the profile portion of a finishing sequence. For approach or exit optimization on horizontal part surfaces, the Lead In and Lead Out moves are created as tangent helical arcs instead the standard horizontal arcs. This improves surface quality.
