The REVO 5-axis from Renishaw, with its benefits, promises to be the next wave in quality control.
The need to retain accuracy has historically compromised the ultimate speed of the measuring process due to the characteristics of a CMM’s structure. The non-linear motion of a Cartesian CMM induces accelerations and decelerations that twist and deflect the machine structure and result in measurement errors that increase with speed and acceleration.
REVO 5-axis systems approach this challenge from an entirely different perspective, minimising CMM accelerations whilst moving the stylus very rapidly over the component surface through the simultaneous control of the three machine and two probe head axes (X, Y, Z and A, B).
Additionally, the REVO system offers five different probe families, each specifically designed to maximise the advantages of 5-axis motion and infinite positioning. The probes are automatically interchangeable and include tactile scanning, touch-trigger, surface finish and non-contact vision probes. All are used within a common co-ordinate reference frame and provide the choice of an optimum tool to measure multiple features all on a single CMM platform.
