The RapidChange ATC magazine offers a hassle-free installation process, making it a valuable addition to your CNC workflow. Even if your CNC machine lacks an integrated M6 function, as long as it meets the essential spindle speed and rotation requirements, you can bid farewell to manual tool changes and embrace the simplicity of g-code macros.
Setting up the RapidChange ATC magazine is a breeze. Use your CNC machine to precisely locate and drill the mounting holes for the provided M6-55mm hex head cap screws. A DXF file with detailed mounting hole and tool pocket recess locations is included with your magazine, ensuring accurate placement in both X and Y dimensions. To establish the Z reference position, utilize the convenient spacer provided. After moving the spindle to the first pocket, fine-tune the X and Y reference points, and you’re all set for seamless tool changes.
Minimal Complexity, Maximum Functionality
The beauty of the RapidChange Magazine lies in its simplicity. You can achieve automatic tool changes straight out of the box without the need for compressed air, solenoids, or intricate M6 integration. While additional peripherals are available for convenience and added protection, the magazine’s core functionality is simple, reliable, and requires no electrical connections.
