Mazatrol is a proprietary conversational programming language that is standard on all Mazak mills and lathes. It is primarily used for 2 & 2 1/2 axis work and is especially popular for turning applications.
It has a different format than G-code programming and is supported by Predator DNC by using the Mazatrol link in your commands.
We have a hardware device that specifically can send and receive these programs called the USB Connect – Mazak Model.
The Pendant mount USB Connect – Mazak model controller is for all CNC’s, including Mazatrol CMT.
The USB Connect device acts as an interface between commercially available USB flash memory and any CNC control with an available RS232 port. Machine tool files can be sent from CNC memory to the USB key, USB key to CNC memory or drip-fed (DNC) from the USB key.
Flexible DNC firmware is built into the USB Connect unit allowing connection to just about any machine tool CNC control. The pendant mount USB controller kit contains all the necessary hardware to integrate a universal display onto a CNC machine tool pendant.
