Takumi USA has partnered with Renishaw to be the first CNC machine tool brand to offer Renishaw’s Set and Inspect app for the Fanuc control. Set and Inspect allows job shops with a part probe to add inspection probing to its process. The APP is not loaded directly on the Fanuc control, but Takumi engineers integrated the app to the Fanuc control with Fanuc’s FOCAS 2 feature and added a tablet device to the control.
The software features an intuitive interface that guides the user through the process of creating a probing cycle, automatically generating the required machine code for the probing cycle, and sending it to the control. The company says even inexperienced operators can learn to use the software within 30 minutes.
Takumi USA and the new Set and Inspect app by Renishaw is now available on the Takumi H-Series 3-axis high-speed double-column CNC machines, the Takumi V-Series 3-axis box way CNC machines, and the VC-Series 3-axis heavy-duty general purpose machining centers.
