Will My Machine Orient the Titespot® Angle Head?
On machines so equipped, a “C” axis can be used for multi-position orientation of the head.
On machines without a “C” axis but with a servo and encoder (as is used in rigid tapping) it is almost always possible to re-orient the spindle to the desired angle(s) by altering the parameters for the M19 tool changer position.
For more information on how to do this, see our tutorial on indexing the spindle.
