Yes, the head can be adjusted 360 degrees.
How do I orient the angle head?
On machines with a "C" axis, the angle head can be used for multi-position orientation. On machines with a servo and encoder (as in rigid tapping), it is usually possible to re-orient the spindle to the desired angle(s) by altering the parameters for the M19 tool changer position.
How fast can I machine?
The rule of thumb is we can remove in mild steel about 1 cubic inch per horsepower per minute (22 cubic centimeters per Kw per minute). About 3 times that much in aluminum and half that in heat treated 4140 or stainless.
Can I tap?
The spindle direction can not be reversed. You can however thread mill with a Titespot® head.
