Usability by design

MODUS 2 has been designed with usability in mind. The innovative interface is simple for new users to learn and faster to program, resulting in unprecedented levels of productivity with or without a CAD model.

Based on the established and highly capable MODUS platform it offers optimal support for Renishaw's suite of 3- and 5-axis CMM sensor technologies.

User experience

From simple manual CMM operation through to complex part measurement on multi-axis systems, MODUS 2 adapts automatically and only offers functionality relevant to the current task.

The user experience is designed to be identical whether the software is connected to a ‘live' CMM or working in an offline environment where full simulation with speed control allows measurement sequence development and visualisation.

Future-proofed

The MODUS 2 metrology software suite is a future-proofed investment, guaranteeing availability of the latest sensor and controller technology advancements from Renishaw. This will include future sensors for the 5-axis measurement product range, which delivers unprecedented speed and measurement flexibility, whilst avoiding the speed versus accuracy compromises inherent in conventional techniques.
