Extended tool settings (P-TOOL-00147)

P-TOOL-00147

Extended tool settings (modes)

Description

This parameter enables additional modes for the tool.

The following modes are currently available:

  • NONE: no additional modes (default)
  • GEAR_CHANGE_NO_STOP: All the functions of the parameter P-TOOL-00019 can be used when this mode is set. It permits a change in the rotation direction of M3/M4 or M4/M3 when this mode is set. In addition to P-TOOL-00019 this mode can also differentiate between the gear ratios of the two tools. An “internal” gear change then takes place without the spindle stopping. However, the mode must be set for all the tools participating in the change.

Note: Only use this parameter if no physical tool change is linked to the D/T word (e.g. several drills/milling cutters on one machine).
