Five-Axis Head for Inspection on CMMs Increases Throughput
Utilizing technology developed for its Revo measurement system, Renishaw says its PH20 probe head offers “head touches” for rapid touch-trigger measurement and fast, infinite, five-axis positioning for optimal feature access. Its compact design makes it suitable for new CMM purchases as well as a retrofit for existing CMM touch-trigger installations.
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.
Functional gear testing, also known as total radial composite deviation, is a method of looking at the total effect of gear errors. This test method simulates the conditions under which a set of gears is likely to operate as a result of the gears meshing together.
Here are some of the tools and techniques for making sure machine tools stay at peak performance levels.
