General Mach Discussion / Tool changer control
« on: June 19, 2013, 11:17:52 PM »
I am currently working on a 10 pos carousel tool changer for my rf 45  and need some suggestions on control. Currently using ESS with Mach 3. I need to control stepper motor for carousel and several I/o for sensors and slide control.  Is it best to use a macro and the I/o available via ESS or use something like and Arduino to control the tool changer and just use Mach 3 to request the tool and verify completion.  Does anyone have Mach screen made for tool changer? Any help would be appreciated.

Yup that's what I was thinking, but it appears to be something to do with the 2002 variable where it lift the tool .2 above the first touch. Instead of lifting it goes down further. It stops at the first touch.

I was using your code for tool setup and all was fine. Setup table. Ran some code with tool changes and everything was fine.
I then went to setup some additional tools and after 1st touch off of tool it drove tool through table. Any ideas?
