Renishaw Productivity+ In Mastercam

If you know Mastercam you know Mastercam Productivity +. Probing operations are created easily using the Mastercam interface by selecting geometry for inspection. You can also incorporate standard tool detection operations for long run jobs. Working with Mastercam Productivity + you can run the program two ways. Post all the Productivity + code with your NC code and keep it as a self contained file or you can post the NC code with the macro calls, saving space on your memory. My experience is to use the macro calls. Some people might question what happens if your memory gets erased. If you're not backing up your control setting and you lose your memory you have bigger problems then probing routines! Probing is the method of measuring the physical geometrical characteristics of a CNC machine or machined part in a X,Y & Z motion, capturing that data, and translating it to the CNC machine for offset information or part geometry inspection. It enables programmers and machinists to establish best practices for maximizing the efficiency, quality, capability and accuracy of machine tools. Many modern CNC machine tools have standard routines built into the CNC controls to simplify the integration of probing cycles [...]

Probing Saves Time and Makes Better Parts

By | 2016-12-15T14:31:01+00:00 March 28th, 2016|Categories: Mastercam|0 Comments

In this blog post we'll go over some of the benefits to installing on-machine probing to your CNC machines. What is probing? Probing is the process of measuring the physical geometrical characteristics of a CNC machine or machined part in a X, Y & Z motion, capturing that data and translating it to the CNC machine for offset information or part geometry inspection. It enables programmers and machinists to establish best practice for maximizing the efficiency, quality, capability, and accuracy of machine tools. Many modern CNC machine tools have standard routines built into the CNC controls to simplify the integration of probing cycles into machining operations and offline tools. These routines, combined with a CAD interface, make the simulation of measurement functions easy. The Old Way Using shim stock, or in most cases a piece of paper, and entering offset data manually takes time and is prone to operator error. Tool setting probes are easily installed on machining centers and CNC turning centers allowing automated operation with the following benefits: Significant time savings with reduced machine downtime Accurate tool length and diameter measurement Automatic tool offset calculation and correction Elimination of manual setting errors In-cycle tool breakage detection Reduced scrap [...]
