    Default Advanced Tool Management

    The company I work for have a VF7 and VF8 with Advanced Tool Management. The manual talks about Tool Groups. The carousel is full so I can't setup groups.

    I want to monitor two EM's that do a lot of work. Can I setup ATM for only one tool? Will the control alarm when the tool wear parameters are met?

    Macros are not turned on in the control.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Yes. Easy -- see the ATM section in the Haas Mill Operators guide.

    Yes

    Without setting up ATM, can page through the screens after you hit "Current Commands" and see things like total time and feed time for all your tools. To get the alarm you'll need to set up ATM.
