Advanced Industrial Measurement Systems (AIMS) has engineered its Revolution-series HB shopfloor coordinate measurement machine (CMM) for fast, accurate inspection and intelligence gathering. The company will display its machine fitted with a Renishaw five-axis PH20 probe head, which quickly obtains high-density points for feature size, location and form. 

The machine has a polymer cast base providing vibration resistance and thermal stability. The hard-bearing machine does not require air and can be moved onto the shop floor to gather data at the point of use.

The company’s lab-grade Revolution-series LM will also be on display in Renishaw’s booth. It is fitted with a five-axis Revo 2 which collects workpiece data with 2D and 3D tactile probes, a surface roughness measurement probe or non-contact vision probe.


  • Predictive Maintenance And Machine Tool Calibration Techniques

    Here are some of the tools and techniques for making sure machine tools stay at peak performance levels.

  • Surface Texture From Ra to Rz

    The irregularity of a machined surface is the result of the machining process, including the choice of tool; feed and speed of the tool; machine geometry; and environmental conditions. This irregularity consists of high and low spots machined into a surface by the tool bit or a grinding wheel.

  • 3D Scanning: Reproducing One-Of-A-Kind Prototypes

    A laser scanning system helps this shop capture the free-form surfaces on a hand-sculpted original. The resulting digitized models are the basis for CAM applications such as programming a CNC machining center.
