Lathe Tool Changer
« on: January 23, 2010, 08:17:04 PM »
I am converting an Anilam lathe to Mach3.  The lathe has a six position tool changer made by Baruffaldi.  The tool changer is driven by an old Mitsubishi PLC and integrated into the Anilam control.  I would like to up date the PLC to a DirectPLC DO-6.  The changer uses a 3 phase motor, encoder, lock, and position sensor to move it into position.  Has anyone integrated this type of changer into Mach?  Any advice or assistance would be appreciated.  Thanks.
