The Phoenix RB is a shop-hardened CMM for small- and medium-sized parts. With a capacity of 12″ × 12″ × 10″, the system complements the larger Phoenix (20″ × 16″ × 14″) and features bearing, way, and scale protection for shop use. The scales are metal-on-steel structures assuring uniform thermal response.
The CMM is a moving-bridge design with a full granite table on a sturdy stand that houses the electronics and computer. Hardened and precision-ground ways with high-accuracy mechanical bearings provide long term reliability. Built-in mechanical (intrinsic) accuracy is independent of volumetric software error correction and considerably reduces calibration and maintenance cost over time.
The motorized system includes a controller, joystick, Renishaw probe, computer system, and the company’s proprietary GeoMet software.
