The Spindle Orientation option allows spindle positioning to a specific programmed angle. This option provides inexpensive, accurate (0.5 degree) positioning. Special applications on lathes, such as robotic tending, live tooling operations, and driven broaching heads, require orientation of the spindle to a certain angle.
