A tool controller carries properties for how a tool should be used in one or more operations.

For example a tool, like a 1/4 inch cutter can run at many different spindle speeds and feed rates. The same tool might be used in different ways in the same job.


  • feed speed (h)
  • feed speed (v)
  • rapid speed (h)
  • rapid speed (v)
  • Spindle Speed (rpm)
  • Spindle direction (forward/reverse)
  • Tool Number
