MachMotion Wireless Pendant Enhances CNC Operator Mobility
MachMotion has developed a fully integrated CNC controller retrofit package with a wireless pendant – helping operators to move around more safely and freely while remaining in control of the machine.
With older CNC machine controls, you are tethered to the machine by the control. You have no way of freely moving about the machine and being in control anywhere other than at the controller itself. When you upgrade with MachMotion, we include a wireless pendant that will give you full control over your machine from anywhere (within range) at your facility. Let’s take a deeper look at the benefits of using a wireless pendant and how you can upgrade your shop’s machines with new CNC control systems.
Easy To Use, Modern & Intuitive Controls
There are many benefits that the wireless pendant provides to make operators’ lives easier. You can be away from the machine controller and jog the machine, cycle start and stop, set zeros, feed rate, home the machine and much more. The wheel on the bottom of the pendant provides an easy and intuitive way to jog the machine axes in any direction. The magnetic back panel gives your team an easy way to store the wireless pendant right on the controller.
The wireless pendant is a convenient way to control your CNC machine. It not only makes your operation safer, but also more efficient. It provides CNC operators with safe mobility, so they don’t have to worry about tripping or dislodging cables.

Hey, it’s Marcus with MachMotion. Today I have our wireless pendant that you can connect to any one of our 2000 series controls. It’s super easy, it just takes a few clicks to set one of these up and these are really handy. There’s multiple different functions on here you can manually jog your machine so in this case I’m manually controlling Z then Y. I can even control the speed.
Just like that. There’s Cycle Start, Feed Hold, Cycle Stop and several different programmable buttons so you can customize it. You can control your feed rate as well and also you can do a manual tool change so if I just reach underneath here pull out your tool and then put it back.
Just like that, it’s that easy! If you like that content please like and share and smash that subscribe button. We’ll see you the next time!
