Accurately Locate Cast Parts in CNC for Post-Machining Operations | Mastercam & CIMCO Probe 

If we’re going to machine a casting, we need to know exactly where it is. And to do that, we’re going to probe it with CIMCO probing. CIMCO probing utilizes a probe tool to take measurements of the rough casting to locate the center of the imperfect shape to offset the toolpath for consistent finished parts. In this part, we measure the angle and overall width of a part. This allows us to set the machine right in the middle of the casting’s geometry.
