Mastercam Productivity+

Productivity+ is a Mastercam Add-On that allows you to program and simulate a Renishaw probe for your machine tools. It integrates process control into your CNC programs. Productivity+ will perform measurements and report results, allowing you to set up and validate your parts at the machine tool for better process control and performance reporting.





Mastercam Productivity+ gives you the ability to use a Renishaw measuring probe on a machine tool to update fixture offsets, tooling offsets, program orientation, and report on critical dimensions and tolerances. It also assists in lights-out manufacturing and running a machine tool without an operator.

Mastercam Productivity+ provides an easy-to-use platform for incorporating simple measurement functionality and more advanced in-process intelligence into machining programs. It can simplify a wide range of measurement and process control tasks, such as component set-up, verification of critical features, and process development.

  • Program and simulate a Renishaw probe for your machine tool.
  • Improve process control and reporting of your machine tool’s performance.
  • Available with Mastercam Mill and Mastercam for SOLIDWORKS® products.
  • Perform simple measurements and alignments to set up and validate your parts at the machine tool.

Mastercam Productivity+ is a great solution for any shop that wants more control and information about the manufacturing process. Typical industries are:

  • Aerospace manufacturers
  • Automotive manufacturers
  • Medical manufacturers
  • Precision manufacturing
  • Educational institutions
Renishaw Productivity+ Software Solution within Mastercam

Productivity+ is an Add-On to Mastercam that allows users to program and simulate a Renishaw® probe for machine tools, to integrate process control within CNC programs. Productivity+ performs measurements and alignments, allowing set up and validation of parts at the machine tool. This leads to better process control and reporting of machine tool performance.

Process Control

Close the loop by bringing setup and inspection onto the machine tool in process. Productivity+ handles part setup and alignment, tool setup and breakage detection, part inspection, and tool/position adjustment on the fly, right within the program.

Controller Support

Machine tools including 3-, 4-, and 5-axis configurations are supported by a wide range of post processors, providing a consistent level of functionality between machine types. This makes it possible to transfer one probing program between machine tools by simply reposting the program.

Self-Contained Processing

Since Productivity+ runs entirely on the machine tool. The program forms a self-contained package which operates in exactly the same way, every time a part is run. Once it is programmed, there is no need for an external PC, eliminating potential communications and set-up issues.
