Have you told it you have an ATC fitted.


Disconnect from the machine.
Go to Setup, Setup Machine Parameters(Password is Denny) then Tool Change & tick Auto Changer

M34

Then you will need to force the carousel to position 1 & input a M27(reset to position 1)

have tried m27 and m34 no movement machine times out
if I request m6 the table moves to tool change position the carousel moves to under
the spindle and the head comes down at that point I have to stop it as the carousel is out of position
if i put the m code to rotate the carousel nothing moves could it be a problem with the motor
thanks Geoff

Can you try with M32 & M33. Carousel clockwise/anticlockwise.
