23.1.Manual Tool Change
- Please go to “F1-Setup” screen and go to the “Tool Changer”.
- Press enter to open “Tool Changer” list and make sure the “Manual Tool Change” is selected from the list.
- Now press enter to open “Tool change position” window and follow step 2 (below)
The following values can be entered and axis enabled if you would like to do a tool change at a set position. This option is helpful if your machine bed is very large and you want your spindle moved to a certain location, for example on the front of the machine every time a tool change is required.
In the below example the Z axis will first move up to 0.00 location and then move to X 10 and Y 10 location for a tool change. Upon tool change the spindle will move back to the same machining position.
