tool change macro
« on: December 30, 2014, 08:59:38 PM »
Hello All,
I am working on a tool change macro for a emco pc lathe 55. It has a 6 spot turret that moves cw direction past the tool then reverses direction to lock against a locking paw. The original electronics are toast so i replaced them with a gecko 540 and a VFD. The tool changer is driven by a nema 17. What i need is a macro to drive the nema 17 say 72 degrees and then reverse 12 degrees to lock. This is the macro i have that was given to me by a gentleman that had completed his conversion but i can't contact him anymore. I'm obviously missing something.
Thanks in advance.
Derek
