3.2.10 Tool change ToC Previous Next

Tool change in context of this interface is the action of inserting a tool into the machine. There are two reasons this is done or necessary: 1) tool life of one group of tools has expired and machining cannot continue until a new tool with sufficient tool life for the next operation is inserted (causing a tool change) 2) a tool for a given job is not available (or defined as “hand tool” and) must be provided.
