M19 Orient Spindle (Optional) - Lathe

M19 Orient Spindle (Optional)
M19 adjusts the spindle to a fixed position. The spindle only orients to the zero position without the optional M19 orient spindle feature.

The orient spindle function allows P and R address codes. For example, M19 P270. orients the spindle to 270 degrees. The R value allows the programmer to specify up to two decimal places; for example, M19 R123.45.

Spindle orientation is dependent on the mass, diameter, and length of the workpiece and/or the workholding (chuck). Contact the Haas Applications Department if any unusually heavy, large diameter, or long configuration is used.
