ProbeDriver

The original “CAM for your Renishaw probe”!

ProbeDriver is an application available for many CAM platforms, as a plug-in or integrated solution, that provides the user functionality for developing probing G-code for the industry-standard Renishaw Inspection Plus platform.

ProbeDriver basic features and benefits:

  • Supports industry-standard Renishaw Inspection and Inspection Plus software platforms.
  • Following Renishaw standards makes customer integration quick and simple.
  • Model-based programming ensures correct nominal targets to probe.
  • Integrated support for CNC Reporter metrology software.
  • Removes the need for Programmers to understand Macro-B logic, while still providing an interface for advanced user to create custom logic and insert directly to program.  
  • Posts easy-to-understand G code increasing Operator confidence.
  • All XYZ motion posted in Protected Positioning.
  • Create setup, process gaging, inspection or health checking from the same application.
  • Post processors for all major platforms: Fanuc, Haas, Mazak, Siemens, Okuma, Mitsubishi, Mori Seiki and Makino.
  • Independent from CAM post processing.  
  • Support; With ProbeDriver and HTI, you get one of the most recognized teams of probing/metrology experts in the industry. From G-code to SQL…we handle it!

Why ProbeDriver?

  • Cost effective and capitalizes on your Programmers current knowledge of their CAM system and Renishaw Inspection Plus.
  • ProbeDriver was originally developed in 1997 as an internal support application and made its way to the industry at large in 2001, years before anyone else.
  • ProbeDriver has been the template for many other CAM industry attempts at probing.
