Why using a measuring probe? If you are working with precision, you know that it is sometimes tricky, but yet crucial, to find the correct positioning. When locating a part on the machine table or when changing fixtures in your machine it can be costly if you do not find the right position. If you are doing manual measuring and adjustments, it is time consuming and if location is not correct you might need to scrap your parts. A measuring probe is the solution! What can the probe do? We want our customers to increase productivity and reduce scrap cost and that is why we have equipped our Finecut WMC500II with a measuring touch probe from Renishaw. It comes with software integrated in our Human Machine Interface (HMI) and is easy to use. The software automatically guides you through different measuring routines, eg: – locate a hole or boss – find an angle on a workpiece, and an angle towards machine axis – locate an edge How to use the measuring probe?
