How to Install an auto tool changer
« on: March 25, 2018, 12:38:41 PM »
Hi there

I am trying to Install a CC Auto tool changer Spindle Model (MHS72-7512FSF).

What I like to know is What hard ware do I need to have? , and what steps do I need to take in order to do so?

Please be noted that this my first attempt to install a Spindle with ATC, I installed a Manual spindle before, BUT ATC I am a Newbie.

Regards

-some toolholdes
-a solinoid valve for the tool clamp
-a macro
-a couple of other things to get everything fixed
- some luck
anything is possible, just try it.
if you find some mistakes, in my bad bavarian english,they are yours.

Hi TPS

Thanks for the reply.
I sort of know about them.
But could you explain with a little more detail.
I  know that there is a Start and stop Macro, I already have the "M6Start" file, Do i also need a stop Macro? or is it in my Start macro already?
also I think I need  to add some Tab pages to my Mach3, Do you have the links for them?
My Spindle should have the required Solenoid, I am planning to use CC (Chinese) or HSD (Italian)

this is a Standard Start macro. you will need a machine specific one, like i have done here:
http://www.machsupport.com/forum/index.php/topic,36417.0.html

BTW the search function of the Forum is not so hard to understand ;)

Do i also need a stop Macro? or is it in my Start macro already?

the stop macro is only to return where the tool Change started.

also I think I need  to add some Tab pages to my Mach3, Do you have the links for them?

ok the only Thing, i think, is that you please read a Little bit more about basic's  of ATC

My Spindle should have the required Solenoid, I am planning to use CC (Chinese) or HSD (Italian)

that is a Point YOU have to figure out.

anything is possible, just try it.
