  • View your tool path program in 2D or 3D in Simulation Mode.
  • Use your touch screen monitor – desktop or laptop – Windows 7, 8, or 10 – 64 bit operating systems to drive your CNC machine in pendant style.
  • The MX is designed for PC use.  Dedicate your PC or or order from us an All in One Touch Screen Computer with mounting arm for your machine.
  • No additional hardware needed.  Plugs in by simple USB connection.  The CNC Masters MX Control Unit is built with direct USB connection.  No internal port conversions or having to use other hard-to-locate platforms.

Check out the New Master MX

The MX supports…

  • Tool Height Compensation up to Ten Tools within one program
  • Tool Radius Offsets
  • Feed Hold – step through each line in the program while opting to shut the spindle off and then resume program
  • Pause in the middle of a program
  • Coolant Control – optional
  • Variable Spindle Control from 0 to max – optional
  • Spindle Encoder for rigid tapping – optional
  • Jog Feed/Teach Mode –  create a program simply by jogging your axes
  • Feed and Spindle Speed Over-Rides on the fly
  • Relative exact movement positioning without writing a program  — type in one movement and one-click your jog +/- arrow to drive that exact movement
  • Start from another location other than 0.00 – just preset the new coordinates directly into the counters
  • Press Go from another location in your program to drive your cutter
  • Save 0.00 “and” a home offset position for future program runs
  • Live Counter Display during computer numerical control movement without jumping ahead
  • Displays and runs in either inches or millimeters
  • 4th axis interpolation – simultaneous motion with the other axes – optional
  • Rapids up to 100″/minute
  • Trace Mode – Run one line independently at a time from beginning to end in your program to help you study the movement and establish your setup
  • Editor Locked/Unlocked to easily write and edit your program and prevent accidental typing during a program run
  • Displays Run Time
  • Hot Keys – if your preference is to control your machine by keyboard such as the arrows, space bar, and letters simply open the Hot Keys command
  • Run Sub-Routine programs using CALL for nesting applications or to mass produce the same part on a constant loop.
  • Disable Motors — Easily disable motors to hand crank each axis.  Re-engage the motors for cnc control in one click.
