  • Automatic transmission of measuring programs and results
    Universally applicable :
  • Extensive import filters for CAD surface data
  • Available for almost all CNC controls
    Save costs – increase your competitiveness
  • Optimum definition of workpiece zero point in relation to workpiece contour
  • Evaluation of results immediately after machining
  • No transferring to the measuring machine
  • Immediate reworking without setting up again
  • No machine downtime due to missing information/measuring results
  • Documentation of genuine quality
  • Measuring and results in one fully automated cycle


Highest precision

  • m&h touch probe in conjunction with patented calibration ensures highest accuracy
  • One-time setting of triggering scatter during calibration
  • Vector calibration for high demands of speed and accuracy

    Meaningful measuring protocols:
  • Graphic representation of measuring results on the screen
  • Freely configurable display of results
  • Measuring protocol shown through Excel, Word, or HTML
  • Interface for linking up to other evaluation programs

Support of 4th and 5th axis :

  • Measuring on all sides of the workpiece and at undercuts or inclined geometries in free space
    Correction of kinematic errors on circular and swivelling axes
  • Maximum precision by patented compensation of swivelling errors
  • Collection of kinematic errors of the 4th and 5th axes through calibration or actual workpiece
  • Detected deviations are compensated for during the measuring process
    Further functions
  • Support of cross/star probes
  • Use and management of several touch probes per measuring task
  • Management of measuring point groups using different on-screen displays
  • Touch probe configurator for all measuring tasks
  • Universal interface to job management system
    Best Fit Function:
  • Optimization of deviations in position and location by turning and shifting the workpiece
  • Can be used for quick fitting of the blank into the best machining position
  • Quick re-clamping of moulds for repair
  • Determination of position and zero point defining after measuring
