Renishaw's RLP40 and OLP40 lathe inspection probes offer a choice of radio or optical signal transmission technologies to make part setup and inspection on turning centers accurate and reliable. Measuring 40 mm in diameter and 58.3 mm long, the probes provide uni-directional repeatability of 1 micron and can be used to reduce setup times, scrap and fixture costs while improving process control, the company says. Both designs are hardened and sealed to IPX8 to withstand the extreme environments typical of lathes and turning centers. An eyelid protection system prevents entry of chips and debris that could damage probe internals.
