Yamazaki Mazak Latest variant of CNC panel offers intuitive operation, improves machining time
UK – Yamazaki Mazak’s Smooth Technology incorporates a new Mazatrol Smooth-X CNC alongside new machine hardware and servo systems to deliver an improved operator experience and faster machining times.
The CNC is also further integrated into the overall factory management system, the machine tool builder says.
Smooth Technology is the umbrella term Mazak is using to describe its concept for the programming and control of complex, multi-axis machine tools.
According to the company, the interface is operated intuitively in a similar way to smartphones and tablets.
Smooth-X features a smooth graphical user interface with five new process home screens that present critical data in a single page view, whilst simplifying the key operational stages: from part programming, management of tool data and set-up, through to the actual machining cycle and machine maintenance, the company says. The Quick Mazatrol interface is said to reduce the process time and number of keystrokes required to enter a conversational program by 38% compared to its predecessor.
