Faster, Smarter CMM Inspection
The new PH20 probe head from Renishaw (Hoffman Estates, IL) has a unique “head touch” capability for high-speed point capture with minimal CMM movement. With its infinite positional capability, it increases touch-trigger CMM inspection throughput by up to three times, plus 5-axis inspection capability to smaller CMMs. The PH20 offers additional time savings with synchronized motion of the head and CMM between measurements, and a unique rapid “inferred calibration” technique that determines head orientation and probe position in a single operation. Finally, the PH20 system uses a Renishaw UCC controller, which provides connection to existing metrology and application software through the I++ protocol.
