Manual Tool Changer

Setting up manual tool changer

  • Go to F1-Setup screen and open Tool Changer window.
  • From the list select Press enter to open Tool Changer list and select the Manual Tool Change from the list.

Setting tool change position

To be able to change tools easily, a tool change position can be set. This option is also helpful if your machine bed is very large and you want the spindle moved to a certain location for easy tool change, for example on the front of the machine every time a tool change is required.

Double click the 1: Manual Tool Change in the list and the below Tool change position window will open where the axis position for a tool change can be entered.

Tool Numbering

CAUTION: Please be aware that from MASSO G3 software versions 4.02.77b and higher, user assignable tools have changed and are now Tool 1 to 100.

INFORMATION: Depending on your software version your first user assignable tool will be either Tool 0 or Tool 1
