Compatible Renishaw products
Renishaw have a number of probe heads and probes that have either the male or female part of the autojoint fitted to them and are therefore compatible for use with the ACR3. For additional information, please refer to the relevant product documentation.
PH10M PLUS - A motorised indexing probe head with 720 repeatable positions suitable for all two wire and multiwired probes.
PH10MQ PLUS - This is an in-quill mounted version of the PH10M PLUS head.
PH6M - A fixed autojointed probe head suitable for all two wire and multiwired probes.
SP25M - High accuracy scanning probe enabling the user to scan for form measurement and reverse engineering, rapid TTP for geometric measurements is also possible.
SP600M - Analogue contact scanning probe which is ideal for profile scanning and it features 300 mm stylus capability. Permits the CMM to gather large amounts of data very rapidly.
TP7M - High accuracy strain gauge based touch-trigger probe.
TP6A - This is a probe suited to general purpose probing applications offering longer and heavier styli carrying capability.
OTP6M - An optical trigger probe that uses a visible laser spot to provide a non-contact inspection solution for CMMs.
Using the Renishaw range of probe adaptor bars (PAA), the complete range of Renishaw M8 probes can be used in conjunction with the autochange system. A brief description of some of these probes is given below:
TP20 - A 13 mm diameter kinematic touch-trigger probe consisting of a two piece design that provides the facility to repeatedly change probe modules without the need for re-qualification.
TP200 - A 13 mm diameter strain gauge based touch-trigger probe consisting of a two piece design that provides the facility to repeatedly change stylus modules without the need for re-qualification.
TP2 - A 13 mm diameter kinematic touch-trigger probe with adjustable stylus force.
TP6 - A 25 mm diameter kinematic touch-trigger probe of a robust design.
ACR3 can only be used in the horizonal orientation.
It is not possible to remove probes off the end of extension bars using ACR3.
