Productivity+ is an Add-On to Mastercam that allows you to program and simulate a Renishaw probe for your machine tool. This is a new solution for integrating process control into your CNC programs. Productivity+ will perform measurements and alignments, allowing you to set up and validate your parts at the machine tool. This leads to better process control and reporting of the performance of your machine tool.
Close the loop by bringing setup and inspection onto the machine tool in process. Productivity+ handles part setup and alignment, tool setup and breakage detection, part inspection, and tool/position adjustment on the fly, right within the program.
Machine tools including 3-, 4-, and 5-axis configurations are supported via a wide range of post processors, providing a consistent level of functionality between machine types. This makes it possible to transfer one probing program between machine tools by simply reposting the program.
Since Productivity+ runs entirely on the machine tool, the program forms a self-contained package which operates in the same way, every time a part is run. Once it’s programmed, there is no need for an external PC, eliminating potential communications set-up issues.
Frequently asked questions
The integrated solution with Mastercam allows you to use probing macros during your machining cycles and create conditions based on your probing.
