Spiral Cut Pattern: What Does This Milling Operation Do?

This type of milling can produce a better finish by cutting continuously. This results in minimal step-overs.

It can also reduce machining time by limiting engage-retract motions between passes.

Siemens PLM Software has a sample video of this new option below. You can see the continuous cut motion.
