Machine tool apps

We are committed to developing a range of machine tool apps for our customers which make installing, configuring, using and maintaining our systems even easier.

Smartphone apps provide information at a user's fingertips in a simple, convenient format. Available globally in a wide range of languages, our free-of-charge apps are perfect for new and less experienced users.

On-machine apps can be seamlessly integrated with a wide range of CNC controls. Apps are installed onto a Microsoft® Windows®-based CNC control or a Windows tablet connected to the control via Ethernet.

With touch interaction and intuitive design, smartphone and on-machine apps provide significant benefits to machine tool probe users.

Smartphone apps

The use of mobile technology – smartphones and tablets – and their associated apps has become firmly established as part of everyday recreational life. Recognising how they can also assist in a multitude of working environments, we have developed a range of smartphone apps for users of our machine tool probing hardware.
