Introducing Computer Numerical Control (CNC) Quick Tip Videos


Vernon Hills, Illinois - March 01, 2018

Individuals who use, sell or build machine tools with computer numerical control (CNC) products from Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc. can now easily access how-to videos for quick tips on commonly asked CNC questions. Offered to end users, dealers and machine tool builders, the videos explain how to perform various functions on Mitsubishi Electric CNC products. 

The CNC Quick Tip videos provide answers to frequently asked questions about various CNC functions. The first videos in the series address the layout of Mitsubishi controls, customizing counters on the monitor page, and performing a program search using an SD card, memory or HDD. Future videos will include topics such as transferring programs to an SD card, USB or via Ethernet, how to set up the tool management data; and using the buffer correction function amongst other topics. 

For end users, the videos provide useful information on how to use the control and will be especially helpful if the users are transitioning from other manufacturers’ controls. Dealers and machine tool builders can use the videos to help in their sales efforts by easily demonstrating to existing and potential customers how to use machines incorporated with Mitsubishi Electric controls.

“The CNC Quick Tip videos are part of our commitment to post-sale customer support. When users want fast answers to questions while they’re on the plant floor, these videos offer an easy, convenient way to find solutions,” said Scott Strache, CNC product manager.  “We also want to provide quick answers to dealers and machine tool builders who sell our CNC products.”

The CNC Quick Tip videos are available on YouTube.
