Productivity+ gives you the ability to use a Renishaw measuring probe on a machine tool to update fixture offsets, tooling offsets, program orientation, and report on critical dimensions and tolerances. It also assists in lights-out manufacturing and running a machine tool without an operator.
Productivity+ provides an easy-to-use platform for incorporating simple measurement functionality and more advanced in-process intelligence into machining programs. It can simplify a wide range of measurement and process control tasks, such as component set-up, verification of critical features, and process development.
- Program and simulate a Renishaw probe for your machine tool.
- Improve process control and reporting of your machine tool’s performance.
- Available with Mastercam Mill and Mastercam for SOLIDWORKS® products.
- Perform simple measurements and alignments to set up and validate your parts at the machine tool.
Productivity+ is a great solution for any shop that wants more control and information about the manufacturing process.
Productivity+ is a Mastercam Add-On that allows you to program and simulate a Renishaw probe for your machine tools. It integrates process control into your CNC programs. Productivity+ will perform measurements and report results, allowing you to set up and validate your parts at the machine tool for better process control and performance reporting.
Features and Benefits of Mastercam Productivity+
3-, 4- and 5-axis configurations are supported by a wide range of post processors to integrate process control into your CNC programs with a consistent level of functionality between machine types; transfer one probing program between machine tools by simply reposting the program.
Predictive Process Setting
Perform simple tests to ensure that a machining process will be successful. As a Productivity+ program runs entirely on the machine tool, the program forms a self-contained package which operates in exactly the same form, every time a part is run.
Gain information about the in-process state of a component and the decisions involved in production. Use the probe to measure features and update machining process based on the acquired data.
Productivity+ creates programs which run entirely on the machine tool, including all the calculations, updates, and logic needed. No external PC is required to process measurement data, eliminating potential communications issues.
Setting Zero Locations
Productivity+ can be used for setting up the zero locations of a part. This is useful when
machining castings or forgings with size variations.
Minimize air cutting or cutting too much material on first passes.
