The probe in the first video (top) is not the SFP1, but rather, Renishaw's RSP2 tip-scanning probe for dimensional measurement. However, the SFP1 relies on the same laser tip-sensing technology to measure surface finishes ranging from 6.3 to 0.5 Ra.

The second video (bottom) demonstrates how the Revo’s rotary B axis and the SFP1 probe’s passive C axis work together to change the orientation of the stylus.

  • 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.

  • Measuring Part Geometry On The Shop Floor

    Measuring workpiece dimensions is relatively simple for machine operators but measuring workpiece geometry which involves more complex comparisons of part shape to an ideal shape--is now also practical on the shop floor. The gaging equipment for doing this is coming down in price while becoming easier to use.

  • Working With Your Working Gage Blocks

    The uses of working gage blocks are as varied as the number of gage blocks in a large set. The working blocks have an intermediate grade and are often used in the inspection or calibration lab, but they may also be found on the shop floor.
