Prechange Tool Change
« on: February 16, 2017, 02:56:02 PM »
I'm wanting to add a Tool Prechange to my machine.  I've got my tool magazine being controlled via a Click PLC.  I'm sending the Pocket information to the PLC through Modbus Registers, and that is working very well. 

I just can't seem to figure out how to change the requested tool (mc.mcToolGetSelected(inst)) information outside the M6 Macro.  I thought it was done by putting a T# without the M6 on a line of code.  That doesn't seem to do it for me. 

Any ideas on how this  is accomplished?
