Lathe tool change

Lathe tool change

Postby Dennis » 21 Jul 2017, 22:28

I have a lathe retrofit I've used for a couple years and always have to re register each tool if the part requires a tool change (manual Aloris tool block).

My question, is there a way to call up multiple tool offsets within the program.

I've tried multiple combinations, like using an m6 (this sends the lathe on a wild excursion around the work envelope) and doesn't give me any repeatable results.

I don't need an automatic tool change but a way to call up different offsets.

Example :
G0 Z2.0
G43 T2
G0 Z.5

When I try this code it errors with "no M06"
