Configured for CNC machine tool controls
An easy-to-use, on-machine app to view component measurement data.
Display results from cycles generated via Set and Inspect or programmed directly using Inspection Plus.
Seamless integration with a wide range of CNC controls.
Reporter is an easy-to-use, on-machine probing app for customers who wish to view component measurement data on the CNC machine tool control. The app is installed onto a Windows®-based CNC control or a Windows tablet connected to the control via Ethernet.
Features and benefits
- Quickly view pass and fail measurement data at the CNC machine tool.
- Displays measurement trends for every probed component.
- Measurement results can be viewed live, as the component is measured.
- Complementary app to Set and Inspect.
- Minimal training and product documentation required.
Simple yet powerful
Thanks to the app's intuitive design, data is displayed in a way that is easy to understand; perfect for those with little or no probing experience. The graphical display provides a real-time pass or fail indication for each measurement while historical data allows the app to display measurement data for every part measured on that machine tool. Simple data analysis is also possible: selection from the main graphical display presents users with data trends that can provide traceability on critical features, indicate tool wear or even display the effects of thermal growth on a machine tool axis.
The capability of Reporter is not just limited to component measurement: repeated measurement of a fixture will provide vast amounts of data for both component verification and a clear indication of machine performance. This makes Reporter a powerful tool for users who want to maximise the effectiveness of their probing system, manufacturing processes and machine tools in the simplest and quickest way possible.
Flexible and adaptable
Reporter displays probe measurement data from Inspection Plus programs: both those that have been programmed directly and those generated via Set and Inspect. A simple modification to existing probing programs is all it takes to get existing Inspection Plus users up and running with Reporter. Those completely new to probing can benefit from Reporter by generating probe routines using the Program builder functionality of Set and Inspect: Reporter will automatically display measurement data from probe routines generated this way, making it even easier to view and retrieve measurement data.
Compatibility with Inspection Plus means that this single app can be used across a wide range of machine tools and CNC controls whilst retaining its ease of use.
Reporter is part of Renishaw's developing range of machine tool apps that are designed to make probing simple.
