The Renishaw Primo system is available through a combination of minimal upfront costs, a free, comprehensive training package, and immediate parts replacement in a pay-as-you-go model.

The twin-probe system comprises the Primo radio part setter, Primo radio 3D toolsetter and Primo Interface. The radio part setter accurately locates a workpiece prior to machining, and the toolsetter measures the length and diameter of cutting tools. The Primo system has three additional key elements: Primo credit token, Primo Total Protect, and GoProbe software.

Credit tokens enable the pay-as-you-go solution, which ensures an affordable initial investment, attractive overall purchase price and fast payback, the company says. Users buy a 6-month credit token, which enables unlimited use of the machine tool probe system during that period. Once the credit expires, users can purchase an additional credit token to extend system usage by another 6 months.

Registration of a valid credit token activates Total Protect, which provides coverage for accidental probe damage. If any hardware element of the system is damaged, Renishaw will replace it, free of charge.

The GoProbe software and supporting training kit is a comprehensive self-study package with a range of training tools and modules that guide users through everything they need to get the most out of the Primo system.
