Dayton OH – According to machine tool distributor and factory automation specialist, Gosiger Inc., new software and machine control technologies enable manufacturers to integrate dimensional part inspection within a robotically automated CNC machining cell.
In a recent installation Gosiger included a Renishaw Equator gauge that is built to operate on the shop floor, using touch probe and analog scanning technology with reference to a master part, to enable high-production inspection.
To maximize productivity, Gosiger recommends coupling the Equator gauging system with a CAPPS software package from Applied Automation Technologies, Inc. The software provides a number of user benefits including:
Adding inspection and managing the data in this way makes an automated CNC machining cell even more efficient. To learn more, contact Gosiger Automation.
