CMM INTERFACE – CORRECTIONS
BendPro G2’s measuring machine interface is used to create a bi-directional part data corrections loop between a CNC tube bender running BendPro and a coordinate measuring machine (CMM). The CMM must have software capable of utilizing the Supravision Network Protocol (SNP). Software programs include V-Tube Laser, BendingStudio, TeZetCad, etc.
CMM INTERFACE – SUPRAVISION NETWORK PROTOCOL
Supravision Network Protocol (SVNET) uses a local network connection between the bender and the CMM PC. The protocol requires both computers to have access to a shared folder. Files are written to and read from this folder to send parts back and forth. This folder must be setup with read/write permissions and can be located on the CMM PC or on a network.
