Glossary

The number of degrees the tool tip will traverse along an arc relative to the center of rotation during a 1 minute time interval.
IPM: (Feed inch per minute)
The distance in inches traveled during a one minute time interval.
Position on radius:
The distance that the tool tip is from the center of rotation.
4th Axis: (Usually the A axis)
A work holding device that add a rotary movement along one of the 3 main axes; X, Y, or Z.
Note:
The position of tool tip on radius calculator is basically a play on math. I am not sure if there is a practical use for it but I just thought I’d put it in there. - Martin
