SolutionWare Corporation, the developer of MazaCAM, a breakthrough technology for Mazak shops using the Mazatrol language has released MazaCAM CAD/CAM and Editor – Matrix Edition Version 4.6. This latest edition of MazaCAM includes various major enhancements to help Mazak shops program their machines or convert programs from one machine to another.
Enhancements to address previously unsolvable problems:
One of many enhancements which have had no solution in the past is the ability to take a 3D Mazatrol program and convert it to another Mazak control. With this new feature, re-writing 3D Mazatrol programs by hand to another control is no longer an issue thus reducing programming time and cost.
Converting to Matrix from Legacy controls:
With the increasing cost of programming and reprogramming parts that are already proven on other machines, Mazak shops are continually looking for new solutions to improve productivity and delivery time. And while most Mazak controls can up-convert the immediately prior generation or two, the task when converting to Matrix is far more extensive than any previous generation, and many aspects are tricky to handle.
While anyone can get there by hand-copying the program and entering it into the new Matrix control, this is a tedious and error-prone method. MazaCAM is breakthrough technology that transforms the legacy Mazatrol programs to the new Matrix controls, enabling the shop to be up and running in a minimum time.
The e-Machine and the Integrex:
Many customers who buy the e-Machine (which is milling-based) also have an earlier Integrex (which is turning-based). MazaCAM converts between these entirely differently-based control families. There are literally hundreds of tricky nuances that are handed in this extensive advanced conversion. MazaCAM handles Mazatrol programs from all earlier generations of Integrex: T3, T32, T-Plus, Fusion640MT, and Fusion-MT-Pro.
