Tool changer setup using mach
« on: February 01, 2010, 09:15:52 AM »
Hey everyone,
I bought a CNC router that has been used with a tool changer bay/rack.  The rack/bay is missing but i would like to set it up.  I'm not sure as how to approach this, the company this router came from had setup the tool change sequence but it's beyond the limit switch.  The machine can physically go beyond the limit switch but i don't know how to tell the machine to do this.  Any help would be much appreciated.

The only way I can think of is to move the physical limit switches so that you can reach the toolchange position and set up soft limits so it normally stops you going into that area. You could then have your macro for the toolchange disable soft limits, do the toolchange, move back to the normal area and then re-enable the soft limits.
