    Default M6 tool change error

    Hi All
    I have a 90s fanuc om controlled mill tmv400 having recently upgraded from a desk top mill. I am no expert.
    I am having trouble getting m6 to work.

    If I mdi m6 t1 I get a carousel error

    I have attached the error screen and the data about them from my manual.

    My tool change is a robodrill type 10 Station

    OK I can get round this by going
    M16
    G28 z0
    G30 z0 lifts spindle to second ref
    Then press my carousel button to the right station or
    M6 t1

    Then

    G28 zo

    So if in the G30 z0 position m6 works in terms of indexing to the correct position but it won't unload or load a tool.

    I have also attached 9001 program that I think is something to do with tool change.

    Any ideas or things to try appreciated. I'm pretty green.

    Cheers
    Dusty

    You can run the O9001 as a program so does it change a waiting tool for you ?
    When M6 is installed it can be ran through a macro program like that but needs to be declared in the parameter screen to do so ?
    pre call a tool to change position in the mag by
    T1;
    then run that program

    the

    M code is missing a finish signal, usually from a switch, however if the M6 command isn't completed it will also give this alarm. The tool measure error code is interesting, do you have a tool length touch probe mounted, is it functioning ?

    Try single blocks through the program to see where the tool change program hangs up.
