No, the 820 moves the specimen strictly in an up-and-down motion, no extra motions for clearing the blade, etc. It jogs the specimen forwards only toward the blade, at the top point of the stroke. So the motion is straight down for the cut, straight up without any forward-or-backward motion, jog forward the set micron distance, repeat.
