Do you have a sample plc program for a dual arm 24 station side mount type Mill tool changer?

Yes single arm with tool holder at each end.
I've always heard them referred to as "dual arm".
It's on a 2003 fadal 4525.

typically that is what we call a "swing arm" tool changer. and yep we have both schematics and plc programs for swing arm tool changers.
when the centroid cnc software is first installed on the CNCPC it ask the installer to choose a starter PLC program, in that list of many PLC programs you will find several swing arm atc plc pograms.
