Name of the swivel data set
No: No retraction before swiveling
Z: Retraction in the direction of machine axis Z
Tool direction, max.: Maximum retraction in tool direction
Tool direction, inc.: Incremental retraction in tool direction
Retraction path - (only for incremental retraction in the tool direction)

Tool tip when swiveling
The position of the tool tip is maintained during swiveling.
The position of the tool tip is not maintained during swiveling.
High-speed settings (CYCLE832)
Machining of free-form surfaces involves high requirements regarding velocity, precision and
You can achieve optimum velocity control depending on the type of processing (roughing,
rough-finishing, finishing) very simply with the "High Speed Settings" cycle.
Program the cycle in the technology program before the geometry program is called.
The "High Speed Settings" cycle is also in conjunction with the "Advanced Surface" function.
The part program to be executed has been created and you are in the
Press the "Various" softkey.
Press the "Swivel tool" and "Align milling tool" softkeys.
The "Align milling tool" input window opens.
You require the software option in order to use this function:
