Missing codes in auto tool changer
« on: April 22, 2018, 03:45:08 PM »
Hi there
I was going over the auto Tool changer codes “M6Start”, and It appears to me that some codes are missing there, as the codes executing, and after Calling the MovePos() subroutine, it moves to the position of the Old Tool coordinates and then it goes down to ("G53 Z" & ToolDown ) So far so good, but then before releasing the old tool, Shouldn’t it to move forward or backward let’s say a value of 50 mm in order to basically force in or slide in the collet chuck to the Collet chuck Holder (that plastic u shape chuck holder in an array of let’s say 8 tool Holder) then releasing the old tool?
And similar action on new tool pick up procedure?

the machine will only do what in M6Start and/or M6End macro is coded.
as Long you don't Show us your code, we can only look in our magic glass ball ;)
anything is possible, just try to do it.
if you find some mistakes, in my bad bavarian english,they are yours.
