    Kitamura Mycenter 2 Tool Change Macro Program

    Hi
    Can anyone help me with the tool change macro program for our Kitamura Mycenter2 with Fanuc 6M control. We have lost the sub program for tool change after initalising the memory. We had a system error 908 alarm and we initalised the memory. Now we have lost all the programs and sub programs in the memory. When machine is asked to do a tool change it gives the alarm 078 program error. Has anyone got a sub program for tool change. Your help will be much appreciated.
    Thanks

    Hi Jim
    Yes Please try the following macro program for tool change.
    O9000;
    G80M9;
    G91G28Z0;
    M06T#149;
    G49;
    M99;

    Please inform me if it works for you.
    Thanks

    Thanks!
    How are you calling 9000 and setting #149 global variable?

    Hi
    In the program I write tool number and when it reads "T" command, it calls the macro automatically. e.g my prog will look like the following.
    G54G90;
    G28Z0;
    G28X0Y0;
    T3;
    S500M3;
    etc., etc,
    So when machine reads T command it calls the macro (O9000)
    But to write macro for tool change, you need to enable parameter switch so that it allows you to write and make sure you disable the switch after writing macro. I hope it will work for you too.
    Good Luck
