Yamazaki Mazak has launched its Smooth Technology, which incorporates the new Mazatrol Smoothx CNC alongside new machine hardware and servo systems. The company says this will deliver an improved operator experience, faster machining times and further integration of CNC into the overall factory management system.
The company claims the new MAZATROL interface reduces the process time and number of keystrokes required to enter a conversation program. It also features a range of new programming functions such as Intelligent Pocket Milling, fine increment programs such as simultaneous 5-axis machining and free-form die-mold machining.
