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.

  • 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.

    Virtually every machine tool builder lists, as part of a machine's specification, accuracy and repeatability figures. What's generally not given is the method used to arrive at the figures. Though these methods are defined in linear positioning standards, not all builders use the same standards.
