GibbsCAM programming of probing in
Productivity+ is a new simplified approach to producing Renishaw probing routines for machine tools.
These applications simplify the creation and insertion of probing routines into the manufacturing process.
Productivity+ offers a simple solution to automate the time consuming, manual process of generating prohing routines for tool setting, part set-up and post-process inspection.
Productivity+ uses a graphical user interface, providing an extremely user friendly programming environment. By choosing parameters from the dialog boxes, the program is automatically created.
Upon completion of the process, the post processor is selected and the output is automatically created, ready for loading directly into the machine.
Conventional methods for adding probing cycles to an application, mean the user editing the program and inserting probing calls with the associated input parameters. In many cases, a software manual would be required to explain these optional inputs. Productivity+ offers integrated on-line help and step-by-step instruction, eliminating the need for software manuals.
- Nomore manual work on the machine
- Nomore risk of setting error
- Less work for the worker
- Time saved in setting and controls
- Increase of the productivity
- No creation of probing cycles on the machine
- The original file can be used on several machines
