Call a tool change program (M06)

When configured as required (P-CHAN-00118), the M function M06 is not interpreted as a technology function. Instead, it calls a global subroutine. In this subroutine the user can program all the actions required for a physical tool change.

notice

Depending on the version, the processing lines of the tool change program are masked or visible in the display when M6 is executed in the default setting while the NC program is running or in single block mode cycle. When active display is off, only the M6 call is displayed during this time.

This feature is switchable by the channel parameter P-CHAN-00211.

In TwinCat systems, all cycle lines are visible in the display by default.
