4.11 EXPONENTIAL INTERPOLATION (G02.3,G03.3)
Exponential interpolation exponentially changes the rotation of a
workpiece with respect to movement on the rotary axis. Furthermore,
exponential interpolation performs linear interpolation with respect to
another axis. This enables tapered groove machining with a constant
helix angle (constant helix taper machining). This function is best
suited for grooving and grinding tools such as end mills.
