May 13, 2019 – Machine tool programmers and engineers that utilize Renishaw’s GoProbe macros can use Mitsubishi Electric Automation’s Interactive Cycle Insertion screens on its M8 Series of CNC controls. They can use the Interactive Cycle Insertion screens to integrate Renishaw GoProbe macros directly into their CNC control. Those looking to acquire a Renishaw probe can also do so with the knowledge that it will integrate into the Mitsubishi Electric M8 Series CNC Controls.
Interactive Cycle Insertion is an icon-based programming method that lets engineers choose and customize cycles or features directly into their G-code program, through the edit screen. It works to reduce programming time and potential for human error because programmers do not have to hand-type the G-code into the control. This solution is specifically applicable for tool and workpiece measurement.
