    New software for probing

    Toolroom Technology Limited (TTL) has introduced an enhanced software package called Probing PL+S. The software module provides the capability for manufacturing engineers and CNC programmers to plan, visualise and simulate probing routines within a CAM offline programming environment.

    Probing programs and associated process control parameters are traditionally managed at the machine control as part of a prove-out process for each component type. This takes valuable machine time and is an uncontrolled activity that becomes disconnected from the upstream part programming workflow.

    Probing PL+S fully integrates Siemens NX CAM software with all standard machine tool control based macro probing routines, including but not limited to Renishaw, Siemens, Heidenhain, MSP and M&H. Probing PL+S increases component quality reduces set up times and maximises productivity generated via the associative NX CAM programs.

    Process control is defined within the familiar NX CAM interface and integrated into post-processed NC programs, giving confidence that component probe positioning moves will be navigated safely and collision-free. Rob Pope, Managing Director, says; “At TTL we are all about recognition of the importance of developing innovative software technology solutions. Bringing products like Probing PL+S to the market fits naturally within our strategy. We aim to add value to our customers across a wide range of industries and help them improve their manufacturing processes”.

    Probing PL+S is available for NX CAM and can be integrated with all industry available macro probing cycles. Latest developments include complex and multiple stylus arrangements, angled head integration, interpolated turning, and complex co-ordinate plane setting.
