About Set and Inspect

Set and Inspect is a simple, intuitive, on-machine probing app for customers who require an easy-to-use probing solution. The app is installed onto a Windows®-based CNC control or a Windows tablet connected to the control via Ethernet.


Features and benefits

  • Minimal training and product documentation required.
  • Automatically generates machine code.
  • Loads machine code to the control.
  • Significantly reduces data entry errors and programming times.
  • Integrated help text and images.
  • Supports part setting, inspection and tool setting cycles.
  • Inspection results are immediately available to the user.

Ease of use

So easy to use that only minimal user training and product documentation is necessary, users can get up and running immediately, making the app perfect for those who have little to no probing experience or machine code knowledge. The user simply selects a probing cycle from the menu and completes the user input fields. The app does the rest, automatically generating the required machine code for the probing cycle and loading it to the control, significantly reducing data entry errors and programming times.

The dynamic representation of the menus and probing cycles, based on selected machine type, means that a single app can be used across a wide range of machine tools and CNC controls, whilst ensuring that it remains easy to use.

Flexible and adaptable

Set and Inspect is an innovative machine tool app that supports part setting, part inspection, contact and non-contact tool setting cycles. The app is perfect for users with no probing experience, or for existing probe users who want to simplify and revitalise their current probing system.


Set and Inspect is part of Renishaw's developing range of machine tool apps that are designed to make probing simple.
