You must set up a tool group before you run a program with ATM. To use a tool group in a program:

  1. Set up a tool group.
  2. Substitute the tool group ID number for the tool number and for the H-codes and D-codes in the program. Refer to this program for an example of the new programming format. Be sure to have your work offsets adjusted properly to avoid Alarms (316, 317, 318) due to X, Y, or Z being commanded to move farther than your machine is capable of moving.
