Updated SupaTouch Technology

Renishaw will introduce a new version of Inspection Plus with updated SupaTouch technology.

"The benefits of Renishaw's Inspection Plus macro software are amplified with SupaTouch technology," said a company spokesperson. "New usability enhancements added to the optimization routine give users full control of probing cycle feedrates. With this, users can significantly improve cycle times and on-machine measurement results, maximizing the productivity and profitability of their machine tools."

"Minimizing probing cycle time is not as simple as just increasing the feedrate," continued the spokesperson. "In order to minimize probing cycle time while maintaining machined component accuracy, intelligent optimization is needed."

SupaTouch technology provides this vital element, eliminating the need for manual optimization of on machine positioning feedrates, measurement feedrates and strategies. "When compared with traditional software cycles, it provides a significant measurement time reduction of up to 60% on CNC machine tools," said the spokesperson.

It accomplishes this by determining the fastest feedrates a machine tool can achieve while ensuring repeatable measurement. It also decides and implements the quickest probing strategy (one-touch or two-touch). If a probe is triggered for a component measurement during machine acceleration or deceleration phases, the measurement result will be inaccurate. SupaTouch technology detects these erroneous readings and automatically commands the probe to remeasure the surface at a more appropriate speed to ensure accuracy is maintained.
