A specific X, Y, Z, A, B position must be programmed before the canned cycle is commanded. This position is used as the “Start position”. This G code is used to perform rigid tapping for non-vertical holes. It may be used with a right-angle head to perform rigid tapping in the X or Y axis on a three-axis mill, or to perform rigid tapping along an arbitrary angle with a fiveaxis mill. The ratio between the feedrate and spindle speed must be precisely the thread pitch being cut. It is not necessary to start the spindle before this canned cycle; the control does this automatically.
