Low-Cost, Production-Oriented CMM

 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 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.

Flexible Gage Software Integrates with CNC Machine Tools

EMO 2017: Renishaw will exhibit its software for the Equator flexible gauge, which allows users to fully integrate the system with CNC machine tools, its contact scanning system for CNC machine tools, its on-machine and mobile apps which are designed to simplify the use of machine tool probing, an enhanced non-contact tool setter for machining centers, a multi-probe optical interface system, a surface finish probe for coordinate measuring machines, and software that enhances the functionality of Renishaw’s XM-60 multi-axis calibration system.
