    In Fanuc control, M6 is the tool change command.

    For example, after the T01 finished machining, it is programmed to a tool change position by
    G28 G91 X0 Y0 Z0;
    and then if you want call T2, the programmed as follow:

    T02;
    M6;
    For your case, you have to check what's the next tool should be called. hope this could help to you.

    Do you know for sure that it had a O9001 program for tool change? Some machines run the tool change completely out of the PMC. In that case you won't see a 9000 series program. Doesn't need it.

    What happens when you type in M6 like the person above said?

    Look at parameter 0240. Does it have a number 6 there? That parameter states what M code number will call macro or program 9001. If nothing is there then you likely do not need a 9001 program for tool change.

    Here is a tool change program off my YCI Supermax Fanuc OMC. Not sure it will work.
