Technology Demonstration on Machine Tool Probing for Industry 4.0

This technology demonstration is part of the NERDIC Industry 4.0 Readiness Ecosystem program for the New England defense supply chain. For more information, please visit

Join us for a virtual presentation on the use and results of automated probing for CNC machining of a demonstration part.

Probing is an established best practice for maximizing the efficiency, quality, capability, and accuracy of machine tools. Standard routines built into modern CNC controls simplify the integration of probing cycles into machining operations and offline tools. These routines, combined with a CAD interface, make the simulation of measurement functions easy.

On machine probe solutions can help reduce set‑up times by up to 90% and improve your process control. This technology provides solutions for tool setting, broken tool detection, component set-up, in-cycle gauging and first-off component inspection, with automatic offset updates.

On machine probing can deliver significant cost savings, and improvements in quality, for all applications using machine tools throughout many industries.

This session will be recorded and made available on-demand.

Learning Objectives

Learn how machine tool probing can:
• Enable your machines to become smarter
• Reduce your overall scrap rate
• Improve cycle times
• Be a valuable, cost-saving technology for your business
