8.5 Contour turning - only for G code programs
Stock removal residual (CYCLE952)
Using the "Stock removal residual" function, you can remove material that has remained for
stock removal along the contour.
During stock removal along the contour, the cycle automatically detects any residual material
and generates an updated blank contour. For a G code program, for stock removal residual
material, "Yes" must be programmed. Material that remains as part of the finishing allowance
is not residual material. Using the "Stock removal residual material" function, you can
remove unwanted material with a suitable tool.
The "Stock removal residual material" function is a software option.
