Our Mastercam Reseller in Upstate New York, OptiPro Systems, just started a fun new event called “Feature Friday.” They held their first one last week and it was a great success. Local customers came to their shop to learn about a specific Mastercam feature, this past one was Renishaw’s Productivity+ for in-process gauging. Attendees learned how this process gives them the ability to use a measuring probe on a machine tool to determine fixture offsets, orientation, and critical dimensions. Manual job setup and inspection are time consuming and error-prone and probing eliminates the need for tool presetters, expensive fixtures, and manual setting with dial indicators.
Not only did they get to watch a presentation on the functionality, but then they got to walk out to the shop to see it working on a machine, and lunch to boot.
Wishing OptiPro many more successful events. If you are in the Upstate New York area please be sure to contact them at www.optipro.com for more info.
