Multi-award winning multi-sensor system

REVO multi sensor systemREVO is a dynamic new measuring head and probe system from Renishaw. A revolutionary product designed to maximise CMM throughput whilst maintaining high system accuracy.

In recognition to the revolutionary 5-axis measuring technology that has brought dramatic benefits to part inspection on CMMs, REVO has received three international technology awards:

  • Queen's Award for Enterprise 2013
  • Most Innovative Product Platinum Award at ENGIMACH 2010
  • Innovation Micron d'or Award at Micronora 2008
  • Best quality control product or system winner at the MWP 2008

REVO measuring engine blockREVO uses synchronised motion and Renscan5™ measurement technology to minimise the dynamic effects of CMM motion at ultra high measurement speeds.

This is achieved by letting the REVO head do the fast demanding motion while the CMM moves in a linear slow fashion. The use of a flexible tip sensing probe system further adds to the system's accuracy and flexibility. The removable probe system, used in conjunction with a low cost changer, provides added system flexibility.

Controller system

The Renscan5 technology is embedded in Renishaw's UCC2-2 CMM controller which forms the basis of the 5-axis measurement system — 2 of these axes are rotary and at the CMM quill. Patented software capability within the UCC-2 provides unique motion commands, synchronisation and 5-axis metrology capability.

In order to achieve the high scanning speeds it is essential the 5-axis measurement system has a fully integrated control loop. This is achieved using Renishaw's UCC2-2 and SPA2-2 system.

RSP2 scanning probe

REVO and RSP2RSP2 is a dedicated lightweight tip-sensing probe for use on REVO systems, capable of 2D-scanning (x, y) and 3D-touch trigger measurement. The RSP2 has a universal body to which a number of different length stylus holders, with a maximum reach of 500mm, can be fitted.

More information about the RSP2 scanning probe.


RSP3 scanning probes

REVO and RSP3RSP3-# range of probes complement the RSP2 probe, providing the REVO system with 3D-scanning (x,y,z) and crank stylus capabilities. It is used for 3-axis scanning, such as with a fixed REVO head angle during measurement.  The range of probes allow different lengths of stylus to be used whilst maintaining optimum metrology performance

More information about the RSP3-# scanning probes.

SFP1 Surface finish probe

REVO and SFPSurface finish measurement has traditionally required the use of the hand-held sensors or the part to be moved onto a dedicated measuring machine. The REVO SFP1 probe changes all this, making surface finish inspection an integral part of your CMM measurement procedure and the surface finish analysis part of a single measurement report.

SFP1 is a dedicated lightweight tip-sensing probe for use on REVO systems, capable of surface finish measurement and has a universal body to which different surface finish styli can be fitted.

More information about the SFP1 surface finish probe.

REVO changer system

REVO rack buildThe REVO probe change system is designed to allow automatic REVO probe and stylus holder changing on a CMM. The primary purpose of the system is to improve flexibility with the ability to use and store longer styli and large star stylus configurations.

For optimum metrology, REVO probes and stylus holders should be changed automatically using REVO change ports (RCPTC and RCP) and a flexible change rack (FCR25). These ports are mounted on the modular rack system (MRS).

Faster calibration

REVO calibration on datum ballCalibration on traditional CMM systems consumes a considerable amount of time that could otherwise be used for part measurement. The unique calibration technique developed for REVO determines the actual head and probe geometry, allowing measurement in any position from a single operation, thus dramatically reducing calibration time.

More information about the faster calibration with REVO.

REVO valve seat and guide measurement

REVO valve seat measurementThe measurement of valve seat and guides has traditionally been very challenging, involving time-consuming methods that often do not provide a sufficiently capable measurement.

REVO and Renishaw's Renscan5™ technology change this situation dramatically. It is now possible to collect very quickly large amounts of data, from which the analysis parameters for both the valve seat and the valve guide features can be calculated. The method performs exceptionally well in repeatability and reproducibility tests.
