MACHINE DATA | MAZAK

To report Mazak machine data to your applications you have to be able to acquire it from your devices. For Mazak machines equipped with Mazatrol & Matrix controllers that are connected to your company network via Ethernet you can use the utility program MTConnect.exe (GUI) to do so. This article contains instructions on controller setup and test of data acquisition.

CONTROLLER SETUP | TEST PROGRAM | SOFTWARE DOWNLOAD | USAGE | ADAPTED CONTROLLERS

CONTROLLER SETUP

MAZATROL SMOOTHC / SMART CNC

  • Update NC software of the controller at least to the version shown under Adapted Controllers
  • Install and configure MTConnect SMART Adapter (Part# CCWMPD0740E) on a PC with Ethernet that is reachable by your company network and the controller

MAZATROL SMOOTHX / SMOOTHG

  • Update NC software of the controller at least to the version shown under Adapted Controllers
  • Install and configure MTConnect Adapter (Part# CCWMPD0600E) at the controller

MAZATROL FUSION CNC

  • Update NC software of the controller at least to the version shown under Adapted Controllers
  • Install and configure MTConnect Adapter according to your CNC OS (Windows 95 Part# CCWMPD0720E, Windows 2000 Part #CCWMPD0730E) at the controller

MATRIX CNC

  • Update NC software of the controller at least to the version shown under Adapted Controllers
  • Install and configure MTConnect Adapter (Part# CCWMPD0690E or Part# CCWMPD0700E) at the controller

  • Note: For any of the above controllers do NOT install the Agent software supplied with the Adapter

MAZAK TEST PROGRAM

To see and test data output from Mazak machines you need the program MTConnect.exe. It allows you to read machine data output by the Mazak MTConnect Adapter that may be installed directly at the controller or on a remote PC. Data output by both variants can also be accessed from a remote PC. TOP

SOFTWARE DOWNLOAD

USAGE

Extract all content of MTConnect.zip to a folder on your PC and double click MTConnect.exe. If you run the program directly at the controller or PC that runs the Mazak MTConnect Adapter you can simply click on button [Connect] to get data. Otherwise you have to enter the IP Address or DNS Hostname of the device with the Mazak MTConnect (1) and the appropriate Port (2) default = 7878. To avoid that the controller automatically disconnects you have to set a suitable ping interval (3) default = 10 sec.

Mazak Test Program

FIG 2:    Mazak test program TOP

After clicking button [Connect] initially the controller outputs one line with ALL items (5) acquired from your machine to the test program. After that, the device outputs only data for items that have changed (6). If you check 'Show Ping' (4) the program additionally outputs ping and pong communication between test program and controller. As described in ‘MTConnect Overview’ a line output by a controller adapter starts with a timestamp in UTC or local time followed by key | value pairs delimited by a pipe character ‘|’.

  • Notes: Diagnostic messages output by MTConnect.exe like ‘Agent received: ’ are added by MTConnect.exe, they are not part of the adapter output. Sending commands other than * PING to the controller does not have any effect as the Mazak machine software is 'read only' by design. TOP
