Goprobe app eliminates the need for extensive knowledge of machine codes


GoProbe is an enabling technology embedded within the latest Renishaw macro-based software packages. Together with associated training materials and user reference tools, this technology is designed to make using Renishaw machine tool probes and tool setters simple. Key to the simplicity of GoProbe is its programming format which consists solely of a single-line command, eliminating the need for extensive knowledge of machine codes and programming techniques.

The GoProbe app allows users to create this single-line command with just a few quick taps so that they simply need to select the required cycle from the displayed menu and populate a series of data entry fields. The command is generated by the app and displayed on screen ready for input to the CNC machine tool control. Where required, further assistance is available in the form of animations, help images and associated text.
