    Mazak Training!

    Hello,

    Frst thing is are you programming in E.I.A. or Mazatrol? Figure that out and ask them to use their book. More than likely you already know E.I.A. form Fanuc controls but if the current crew is using Mazatrol I would not recommend making waves.
    I do not think there are any videos out there for Mazatrol but it dose have it's advantages.

    Good luck!

    My best advice is dont ovethink whats happening. Mazatrol is verygood if you realize how much power the controls have. If your using machines with m/t 32's and newer most people never even realize how much power is availible to them on the CAM end. Let the control run the machine, just concentrate on getting your profiles right.

    My reply was to Icooper1985.And my answer and question was.
    ( I have a Mazak VQC 20/40B year 1986 with Mazatro cam m-2 controller.Please tell whot you need to know.Do you know how to start it up,or sett axes on zero...I belive I can help you with start it up,next setting axes to X0,Y0,Z0,that people in common say is machine zero.After that four diods on left on control panel shoud light green.
    Then machine is on zero you need to set tools,starting with programming at first with matriel zero and atc.Next will bee the fixture dvs x y z for your piece of matriel,Next the feuture you want to use let say pocket function and so on.
    With Regards Sve0019

    Tooling U has a great mazatrol course. I used it while learning it a year ago. Apparently, they just came out with some more mazak training. I found it extremely useful. You'll have to spend a few bucks to register but I thought it was well worth it
