COST SAVING RENISHAW PRIMO SYSTEM FOR MACHINE TOOL PROBES

Renishaw is a global leader in precision measurement systems.

Their machine tool probes have gained a reputation for enabling CNC operators to reduce costs, increase efficiency and raise output.

Renishaw recently conducted its own market research and found that smaller CNC operators had concerns about introducing machine tool probes to their operations due to three key objections.

Firstly, that existing machine tool probes were expensive, secondly they were perceived to be fragile and thirdly they were difficult to program and use.

To tackle and alleviate these three concerns, Renishaw has introduced the Primo system.

This is an entry-level machine tool probe system that puts precision manufacturing in reach of every CNC operator large or small.

Primo is affordable by virtue of the industry’s first “pay-as-you-go” powered by Primo Credit Token system coupled with a minimal upfront investment cost. You simply purchase tokens when you need them.

Primo is also easy to use and comes with a self-study training manual and new simplified GoProbe software.

The operator is also protected against accidental damage with Primo Total Protect – if the unit is damaged in any way, it will be replaced completely free of charge.

The Primo is supplied with a touch-trigger spindle probe that contacts the workpiece so that its position can be determined prior to cutting.

A table-mounted touch-trigger probe for setting the length and diameter of tools for accurate cutting is also supplied.

A hardwired radio interface enables communication between the Primo system and the machine tool controller.

Dimac Tooling, Australia and New Zealand's leading supplier of accessories and workholding solutions for CNC milling and CNC turning machine tools, is the agent for Renishaw’s new Primo machine tool probe system.

“With the introduction of the Primo system, there’s now no excuse for every CNC operator to invest in a machine tool probe, says Dimac Managing Director Paul Fowler.

“The Primo system offers a ‘pay-as-you-go’ entry-level machine tool probe system with minimal up-front costs coupled with complete peace of mind.

“Suitable for both workpiece setting and toolsetting it represents a genuinely breakthrough business model, making it easy for manufacturers to take their first steps towards higher value manufacturing by automating their operations and achieving repeatable processes.”

Dimac has over 30 years experience in CNC machine tool accessories and are agents for many highly respected brands such as Kitagawa, Cooljet, Reven and Eron.

The company also manufactures soft and hard jaws in its own CNC equipped machine shop.
