REVO 5-axis measurement system

REVO® is the first in a range of revolutionary products to offer 5-axis measurement capability and is designed to maximise CMM throughput whilst maintaining high system accuracy.

Multi-sensor 5-axis measurement system

REVO uses synchronised motion and 5-axis 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 5-axis measurement 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 UCC2-2 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.

REVO changer system

REVO rack build

The 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 (RCP TC-2 and RCP2) and a flexible change rack (FCR25). These ports are mounted on the modular rack system (MRS).

Faster calibration

REVO calibration on datum ball

Calibration 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.

If the CMM is used for multiple parts, with typically 40 head orientations requiring around two hours calibration, REVO requires a fixed 20 minutes.

This time savings accumulate as the calibration process is repeated regularly to comply with quality procedures, ensuring maximum availability of the CMM to measure parts.

5-axis measurement techniques and applications

Renishaw's 5-axis high-speed, high-accuracy measurement techniques offer a wide range of benefits resulting in significant throughput improvements.
