5-axis measurement

Save time and accuracy
with Renishaw® REVO® and PH20 heads

Fully supported by Metrolog X4 & Silma X4

Increase your CMM performance with 5-axis measurement

Perfect 5-axis management

5-axis measurement delivers high performance scanning, on a single CMM.

The Renishaw® REVO® system uses synchronised motion and 5-axis measurement technology to minimise the dynamic effects of CMM motion at ultra-high measurement speeds.

This is achieved by letting the REVO-2 head do the fast demanding motion while the CMM moves in a linear slow fashion. The use of a flexible tip-sensing probe further adds to the system’s accuracy and performance.

Combined with ease of use and power of Metrolog X4 and Silma solutions. This is more than a game changer, not only you save time, but you get so much more details that will enable in depth dimensional and GD&T analysis.

Easy access to features at any angle

Renishaw® PH20’s infinite positioning capability guarantees optimal feature access, minimising stylus changes. The 5-axis simultaneous motion allows larger parts to be measured on the CMM by minimising the space required around the part for head rotation. PH20 automatically aligns itself with the part co-ordinate system, avoiding stylus collisions and the requirement for accurate fixtures.



Faster calibration

Calibration on traditional CMM systems consumes a considerable amount of time that could otherwise be used for part measurement. Using a table mounted sphere, the simple and practical calibration technique for REVO determines the actual head and probe geometry, allowing measurement in any position from a single operation.

Where a CMM is used only for a single or limited number of parts, typically there may be 10 head orientations used. Calibration time for these positions may take around 30 minutes. REVO requires only 20 minutes.

If the CMM is used for multiple parts, typically there may be 40 head orientations, dramatically increasing the time required for calibration to around two hours. Again, REVO requires only 20 minutes.

As the calibration process is repeated on a regular basis, to comply with quality procedures or following a probe crash, these time savings accumulate.
