DATRON next Option:
Surface profile

The software function for creating a surface profile enables your machine to measure and automatically compensate for uneven areas and tolerances on the surface of your blanks. The 3D probe is used to create a Z-measuring field, which automatically adjusts the programmed Z-height during the milling process and thus corrects the measured material deviations.

For example, you use the Z-measuring field for engraving on convex surfaces or for milling blanks with uneven surfaces.
