Probe software for machining centres
Inspection Plus software for machining centres
Inspection Plus is a comprehensive macro software package for Renishaw machine tool probes. A wide range of cycles are
supported from basic part set-up through to more complex vector and angular measurement cycles.
Inspection Plus incorporates new SupaTouch optimisation technology – calibrating a machine tool, controller and Renishaw probe
as a complete system, resulting in improved metrology and reduced cycle times.
Experienced users can create and execute cycles using traditional G-code techniques. New or less experienced users can choose
from a range of Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs), including Set and Inspect (see page 19 for more details) or GoProbe that offers a
simplified programming method supported with a self-study training kit and smartphone app.
The available cycles are listed in the tables below. The ticks in the GoProbe and SupaTouch technology columns signify the
packages where GoProbe and SupaTouch technology is supported.

Contact tool setting software for machining centres
Using a supplied installation utility, Renishaw’s contact tool setting software for machining centres can be easily set up to suit
a machine tool’s configuration. The software is suited to the majority of applications, especially when used with Renishaw’s
industry-standard TS27R, RTS and OTS probes.
Experienced users can create and execute cycles using traditional G-code techniques. Renishaw’s range of user-friendly GUIs
(including Set and Inspect) supports new and less experienced users (see page 19 for details).
The contact tool setting software also contains a GoProbe option to offer a choice between the traditional programming method
and the GoProbe programming method. The ticks in the GoProbe column signify which contact tool setting cycles are available
with the GoProbe option.

Manual measurement
Used to measure the
length, or length and
radius, of a tool.
GoProbe
option

The tool should be
manually positioned
10 mm from the stylus
before running the
cycle, and there should
be no tool offset active.
Broken tool detection
Used to check the
length of a rotating
tool for a broken tool
condition.
The cycle also checks
for a ‘long tool’ condition
in case the tool has
pulled out during
machining.
Cycle title and description
Automatic
measurement
This cycle takes a
measurement on the
tool setting stylus to
measure the effective
cutting length of either
a rotating or a nonrotating tool.

The tool must be
called into the spindle,
then the cycle will
automatically move the
tool to the clearance
position.

Thermal
compensation
Used to check thermal
drift on the machine,
this cycle has two
functions:
1. To set base data.
This measures the
X, Y and Z faces
of the stylus and
saves the positions
in variables. The
locations are set on
the input line.
2. To measure and
compare. This
measures the X,
Y and Z faces of
the stylus and
compares the
results to the base
data, revealing any
thermal drift. The
differences in X, Y
and Z will be output
into variables. If
they are out of
tolerance, an alarm
will be raised.

Non-contact tool setting software for machining centres
The non-contact tool setter (NCTS) is designed to help machine tool operators to set tools and return high-speed / highprecision measurement of cutting tools, and is preferred for applications where delicate tools are used and/or where a tool setter
must not obstruct a machine’s working envelope.
Experienced users can create and execute cycles using traditional G-code techniques. Renishaw’s range of user-friendly GUIs
(including Set and Inspect) supports new and less experienced users (see page 19 for details).

Cycle title and description
Cycle title and description
Tool length setting
Used to measure the effective
length of a cutting tool, this cycle
is suitable for on-centre setting of
tools such as face mills and end
mills.
Tool radius and diameter
setting
Used to measure the effective
radius or diameter of a tool,
this cycle allows the radius and
diameter to be measured from
the positive side of the beam,
the negative side of the beam, or
both sides of the beam.
Tool length and radius setting
Used to measure the effective
length and radius/diameter of
a tool, this cycle is particularly
suitable for tools such as face
mills, end mills, slot cutters, disk
mill cutters, dovetail cutters and
boring tools.
Broken tool detection – plunge
checking
Used to check for broken cutting
tools, this cycle uses a plunge
check to move the tool in and
out of the laser beam in the axis
used for length setting. The cycle
can also check for a ‘long tool’
condition in case the tool has
pulled out during machining.
Cutting edge checking
Used to check for missing or
damaged teeth, or for excessive
run-out of the cutter. *
Broken tool detection for solid
tools
This cycle differs from the ‘Broken
tool detection – plunge checking’
cycle, in that it uses the broken
tool latch mode feature (which is
internal to the cycle) of the NCTS
system to detect broken tools.
This cycle is particularly suited to
wet conditions.
Cutter radius and linear profile
checking
Used to verify the specified form
of a profiled cutting tool, this
cycle is particularly suitable for
ball nose cutters, cutters with a
corner radius, and cutters with
linear profiles. *
Cutter radius measurement
This cycle measures the effective
ball nose or corner radius of a
tool whilst it is rotating. *
Temperature compensation
tracking
Used to calibrate the NCTS
system, this cycle should
be run on a regular basis
during machining operations
to compensate for growth in
the spindle axis and/or radial
measuring axis caused by
temperature changes in the
machine tool. *
* The availability of this cycle is package dependent.

Non-contact tool setting software for multi-axis lathes and multi-tasking
machines – cycles
Cycle title and description
Cycle title and description
Tool radius and diameter
setting
Used to measure the effective
radius or diameter of a tool,
this cycle allows the radius and
diameter to be measured from
the positive side of the beam,
the negative side of the beam, or
both sides of the beam.
Cutting edge checking
Used to check for missing or
damaged teeth, or for excessive
run-out of the cutter.
Tool length and radius setting
Used to measure the effective
length and radius/diameter of
a tool, this cycle is particularly
suitable for tools such as face
mills, end mills, slot cutters, disk
mill cutters, dovetail cutters and
boring tools.
Temperature compensation
tracking
Used to calibrate the NCTS
system, this cycle should be
run on a regular basis during
machining operations to
compensate for any growth in
the spindle axis and/or radial
measuring axis caused by
temperature changes in the
machine tool.
Broken tool detection – plunge
checking
Used to check for broken cutting
tools, this cycle uses a plunge
check to move the tool in and
out of the laser beam in the axis
used for length setting. The cycle
can also check for a ‘long tool’
condition in case the tool has
pulled out during machining.
