Move to toolchanger mout point

Benjamin 6 months ago in Toolchanger updated by Matthew 3 months ago 3

The move to the toolchanger mount point should be seperated by the axis like the clearance point

(e.g. Z first, then XY)


Alarm after probe change is initiated

jd.johnson 2 months ago in Toolchanger 0

Have PC-DMIS prompt what probe is loaded any time there is an alarm after the probe change is initiated. Many time it looses track of what probe it has and crashes into the probe change rack. This happens often if a probe oscillation error occurs after the probe change sequence has started.


Motorized probe magazine

Bill Kulpa 7 months ago in Toolchanger updated by Al Metzel 7 months ago 3

Develop a motorized probe magazine much like every machining center has.

That way it could be mounted in the dead space at the end of the Y axis of most machines.

When a probe change is needed PC-DMIS would move the machine to a predetermined point for that port, the port would extend to the Z rail and unload or load a new probe. This would allow better use of the measuring envelop and enable use of that dead space at the end of the machine.


Animated probe changer

since the animated machines are included with the pcdmis software, shouldnt the animated probe changer be included as well? Apparently this is a paid addon currently, but would be handy for offline path movement and collision detection.
