Renishaw Releases CARTO v3 for its Machine Tool Calibration Systems
GLOUCESTERSHIRE, UK, Jul 2, 2018 – Renishaw announces the release of CARTO software version 3.0 for rotary axis machine tool calibration.
Renishaw CARTO software suite is a measurement and analysis package for use with Renishaw calibration systems. The suite includes Capture and Explore which provide data capture and data analysis for XM-60 and XL-80 interferometric measurement. CARTO features a database system which automatically stores and organizes data for the user, simplifying operation and allowing users to quickly and easily compare data with historical results.
Capturing and analysing data about a machine’s performance using Renishaw’s CARTO software has never been easier. For the first time with CARTO 3.0 the Renishaw XM-60 multi-axis calibrator can be used with the XR20-W rotary axis calibrator, providing one easy to use and intuitive software solution for all Renishaw laser calibration products. Combining the capability of XR20-W and XM-60 with CARTO 3.0 reduces the calibration of a 5-axis machine tool from several days to within half a day.
Multiple error types can be analyzed over different time frames building up a comprehensive overview of a machine’s performance. CARTO automatically stores complete datasets for each machine tool within a single database. By independently comparing the different errors associated with each axis, over different time frames, users can plan preventative maintenance schedules.
Through Renishaw’s CARTO software suite, data is more visible, more usable and more actionable, therefore supporting smart factories with industry 4.0 based technology.
CARTO release 3.0 is available to download free of charge from www.renishaw.com/carto.
