G96 commands the control to maintain a constant cutting speed at the tip of the tool. The spindle RPM is based on the diameter of the part where the cut is taking place, and the commanded S value (RPM=3.82xSFM/DIA). This means the spindle speed increases as the tool gets closer to X0. When Setting 9 is set to INCH, the S value specifies Surface Feet Per Minute. When Setting 9 is set to MM, the S value specifies Surface Meters Per Minute.

warning: It is safest to specify a maximum spindle speed for the Constant Surface Speed feature. Use G50 to set a maximum spindle RPM. Not setting a limit allows the spindle speed to increase as the tool reaches the center of the part. The excessive speed can throw parts and damage tooling.
