- Go to the ALARM/DIAG screen and press the soft key for PLC-I/F.
- At the bottom of the screen in the first three fields, enter 1001 in the DEVICE field, leave DATA empty, and M in MODE and press input.
- Go to TOOL/PARAM, then press the soft key for ZP-RTN.
- Press the NEXT key to get to the screen for the Z axis (3/3).
Enter the new tool change position for parameter #14. This number is set in mm even if the machine is set to run in inches.
When I make adjustments to the tool change position, I disconnect the air line from the machine so I can move the ATC arm with my hand. Orient the spindle and use the handwheel to move the Z axis to the tool change position and then just pull the ATC arm over to engage the tool in the spindle. Enter the new value in the parameter, shut off the control, reconnect the air supply, home the machine and try the tool changer.
