AND NOTES ON ITS USE
(1)Always from +X to –X along the end surface (from –X to +X for the
(2)If outer surface machining is set in machining procedure data without
setting end surface machining, the end surface is cut in the same way
as for the outer surface machining.
(3)When the machining procedure data is set as shown below for outer
surface finishing, the end surface is cut from the outside to the center,
then the outer surface is cut with the same tool, if there is no inner
surface (Fig. a). If there is an inner surface, the end surface and outer
surface are cut in one continuous operation (Fig. b).
