Renishaw, a world-leading engineering technologies company, will demonstrate its developing range of smartphone apps for machine tool probes and tool setters at MACH 2018, Birmingham, (9th – 13th April, stand H19-430)
The use of mobile technology – smartphones and tablets – and their associated apps has become firmly established as part of everyday recreational life. Recognising how they can also assist in a multitude of working environments, Renishaw has developed a range of smartphone apps for users of their machine tool probing hardware.
When CAD/CAM programmers and machinists search for the right cutting tools and tool holders, the process starts in reverse. They look for tools first, then see the tool’s specifications and decide if it’s right for the job. But what if we turned this process around? Why can’t the user specify the job, and then get recommendations from tool manufacturers?
