The Renishaw Equator flexible gauge is now offered with IPC (intelligent process control) software, providing the functionality to fully automate tool offset updates in CNC manufacturing processes. Improved capability in precision part machining, reduced setting and process adjustment time and integration with automation systems are among the benefits that users can expect from the new development, according to the exhibitors. The application is deployed with the existing software running on the Equator controller, using recent historical gauging data to determine process corrections. According to the company, a connection to a compatible CNC machine tool is carried out simply via an Ethernet cable.
