Measurement probe for coordinate measuring machines.
Renishaw’s measurement probe for use with the Revo 5-axis measurement system on coordinate measuring machines (CMMs), increases the multi-sensor capability of Revo by adding non-contact inspection to the exisiting touch-trigger, high-speed tactile scanning and surface finish measurement capability of the system. Thin sheet metal parts or components with large numbers of holes as small as 0.5 mm, and parts which are not suited to tactile measurement, can be inspected with the RVP system. RVP also gives CMM capability by utilizing the 5-axis motion and infinite positioning provided by the Revo head. The system consists of a probe and a range of modules that are automatically interchangable with all other probe options available for Revo. This flexibility means that the optimum tool can be selected to inspect a wide range of features, all on one CMM platform.
