  • Hello,My name is Matt Beisel from SwooshTechnologiesYour Authorized NX CAM providerToday I will be showing you on Machine Probing in NX 9 CAM
  • AgendaWhat is On Machine Probing?Why do we want to use it?How does this work in NX?How does this work on the machine tool?Resources
  • What is On Machine ProbingOn machine probing is a measurement technique used on machine tools to use while your part is still in process on the machineThe machine will use a 2D or 3D probe similar to those found on some CMM’s. The end of the probe sensor that comes into contact with the part is made of hard non-marring material for metals such as ruby’s The probe will contact the part and record machine position when the probe sensor is triggered. Probe positions are recorded on the controller and the probe point positions may be processed directly after the points are taken or later to obtain meaningful data from the points. The meaningful data can the be relayed to the operator, quality system or back to the for adaptive part processing.Machine tool probes may be obtained Renishaw or other manufacturers.
  • Avoid use of additional CMM’sIncrease machine tool accuracyAbility to buy off part while still fixtured in the machineEasily obtain spc dataReduce Gage tooling costFaster than traditional measurement and reduces human error
