5.5 Tool management ShopTurn
Select the "Magazine" softkey
Position the cursor on the tool that you want to unload.
Press the "Unload" softkey.
The tool data are removed from the magazine and stored in the tool
list in a position without a number.
Select the "Magazine" softkey
Press the "Unload all" and "Unload" softkeys.
All tools are unloaded from the magazine.
You can abort the unloading process at any time by pressing the
"Abort" softkey. The current tool is still unloaded, but then the process
is aborted.
The unloading process is also aborted if you exit the magazine list.
Tools can be relocated within magazines or between different
magazines, which means that you do not have to unload tools from
the magazine in order to load them into a different location.
ShopTurn automatically suggests an empty location to which you can
relocate the tool. The magazine in which ShopTurn searches for an
empty location first is stored in a machine data code.
You can also specify an empty magazine location directly or define
the magazine ShopTurn should search for an empty location.
If your machine has only one magazine, you simply need to enter the
location number you require, not the magazine number.
If a spindle location is shown in the tool list, you can also load or
unload a tool directly into or out of the spindle.
Please follow the machine manufacturer's instructions!
