SolutionWare’s MazaCAM Smart Edition is designed to support CNC programming for the entire range of generations from Mazak’s first Mazatrol T1 model to the recent Mazatrol Smart lathes and controls, in addition to virtually all standard G-code CNC controls. A shop can use a single system for programming all its CNCs instead of different systems for each kind of machine, the company says.

The software is designed to help users increase efficiency by converting between control generations, programming Mazatrol on the computer, converting CAD files such as IGES and DXF to Mazatrol, and checking the program before it goes out to the shop floor.

According to the company, a major benefit of the software is its ability to convert legacy Mazak programs to Mazatrol Smart controls and lathes. Shops can be up and running quickly without hand-entering the programs on the new controls, the company says.
