Is there a way to force peel mill not to generate any arc moves?

Arc Filter/Tolerance. you could just set Minimum arc radius really high and it would turn them all into linear lines.

I got it. Turn on smoothing and check "Present arcs as line segments"

curious as to why you don't want arcs?

I use HS settings for this path and my control won't allow helical moves, in HS. 2D arcs are no problem, but the peelmill path creates tiny Z move (0.0001" - 0.001") helices for some darned reason.

could that be micro lift distance causing the .0001 - .001" movements you described? i cant think of how you would get helixes since the toolpath stays down in z but maybe micro lift distance is causing this? you could try setting micro lift to 0 to see if they go away.

I haven't noticed that and I've used it quit a bit. Are you using the dynamic peel or the old peel? do you have a file to share?

edit: i saw Josh's reply and i never use the micro lift, good point.
