Fly2 Mode automatically optimises the motion path of a coordinate measuring machine (CMM). Enabling the probe to glide between measurement points via the smoothest and most efficient path, Fly2 Mode reduces the time taken to execute a measurement program and minimises machine idle periods to help maximise inspection throughput for better overall productivity.
As well as the time taken to measure a part, cycle times are impacted by the time taken to position the sensor for that measurement. The Fly2 Mode trajectory optimisation feature generates the most efficient route between measurement points and creates the probe path accordingly. As a result, program execution times can be decreased, and internal machine stress reduced for lower maintenance and downtime.
