Does anyone have a early 1980's Hurco MB3?. I recently bought one and have some questions on the tool changer.
It seems to continually hang up. As usual with all machine builders, there are no step-by-step instructions for making a manual tool change (to bring up the edge finder) or for other basic processes. We did get that one figured out. I still think there must be an easier was to clear a tool change error - my mazaks (same era) let you input what tool is in the spindle. It appears with the Hurco I must make the physical world match what the controller thinks after an interrupted tool change. Also if you have a fourth axis indexer for this machine you're willing to sell - email me.
