Consisting of a Radio Part Setter and a Radio 3D Tool Setter, the Primo system from Renishaw enables automated on-machine part setting, part inspection and tool setting. It helps to eliminate manual setting errors, improves accuracy and part conformance in addition to reducing non-productive time and scrap, the company says. The system is designed to be simple to install and easy to use, with a training kit and pocket guide included for operators.

The company’s Primo Credit Token system offers users the flexibility to “pay-as-you-probe.” Six-month renewable tokens enable unlimited use of the Radio Part Setter and the Radio 3D Tool Setter within this period of time. The credit tokens are also available as an upgrade to enable unrestricted continuous use.

According to Renishaw, a key benefit of the Primo system is the elimination of the need for extensive G-code knowledge. The system is supplied with GoProbe, a software package designed to simplify part setting, tool setting and calibration. Simple, single-line commands are used instead of multiple lines of code, a feature which further eliminates the need for special training.
