Capturing data points over a plane can be accomplished by utilizing the REVO-2 drive system to sweep back and forth while the CMM drive system move is a singular vector direction under a constant speed. This process minimizes the inherent inaccuracies of the CMM structure while scanning the surface at high speeds.
Sweep scan - curved surface
The REVO-2 drive system adapts to the changing surface shape by control the contact
pressure of the stylus during a sweeping action. The CMM drives in a uniform direction to
minimize the inherent inaccuracies of the CMM structure. This results in the ability to
provide surface following while capturing large data point sets and is particularly suited to
the measurement of airfoil surfaces.
