    The T-2 control did not have TPC control abilities. Mazak added that to the next gen control T-32.

    Sounds like you did not have the correct parameters for your machine. The parameters are what tell the control what type of machine it's hooked up to and the configuration of the machine.

    This machine has a 16 tool magazine on a chain rather than a turret. Mazak gave this machine tons of X-axis travel because it has live milling. You need the extra X-axis travel when drilling into...

    This machine has tons of X travel and clearance around adjacent tools due to the machine having milling capabilities. You are right, I could not clear a tool like this on a turret machine.
