CNC Controls: Mazak

One of the more sophisticated computer numerical controls (CNC) used on the shop floor today is Mazak’s Mazatrol Matrix control. The Matrix control offers either conversational programming or more traditional G-code programming to run the machine tool. Mazak machines are particularly known for quality construction and mill-turn capability.
These classes describe the specific step-by-step instructions necessary for the basic operation of the Mazatrol Matrix control. Classes are split to address specifically either the mill or lathe version of the control. Students first learn how to power up, home the machine, and enter offsets. More difficult classes focus on activating and executing programs, adding programs from various storage methods, and using the editing features of the control.
