Probe Manager is an add-on for Mastercam, which depicts the complete Heidenhain touch probe on the PC. With this C-Hook you have the opportunity to program all sampling cycles on your PC you have on your Heidenhain, Siemens, Millplus and more controls.
With this C-Hook you can:
- compensate the workpiece slant,
- write values from the touch probe system in a zero point table,
- set the reference point with 3D touch probe systems,
- circle Center as a reference point,
- set reference points over holes/circle pins,
- measure workpiece with 3D touch probe systems,
- determine the angle between the angle reference axis and a workpiece, and many more.
The input mask in Mastercam has been adapted to the control system and can be adapted on request with text and images. The Probe Manager Add-on offers you:
- Time saving, because no measurement programs have to be written on the machine
- Collision avoidance, because the programmed cycle can be checked
- Clarity, since the measurement cycles and the NC programs come out of Mastercam and can be archived / documented together
- Reproducibility, because the measurement cycles can be individually stored and used again and again
