Mitsubishi Electric Automation Interactive Cycle Insertion screens on its M8 series of CNCs are designed to be used with Renishaw’s GoProbe macros. Said to be user-friendly, the screens can integrate Renishaw GoProbe macros directly into CNCs. 

Interactive Cycle Insertion is an icon-based programming method that lets engineers choose and customize cycles or features directly into their G-code program. The company says that this reduces programming time and potential for human error because programmers do not have to manually type the G code into the control. This solution is specifically applicable for tool and workpiece measurement.
