RUP1 ultrasonic probe for the REVO® system

The RUP1 probe system makes automated thickness measurement an integral part of your CMM measurement procedure.

RUP1 ultrasonic thickness measurement

The RUP1 ultrasonic probe increases the multi-sensor capability of the REVO® system offering ultrasonic thickness inspection.

Unlike many other ultrasonic systems, RUP1 does not require the use of water tanks or coupling gel to enable a good transmission of the signal. Instead, it uses an innovative elastomer tip ball to provide excellent coupling between the probe and the material. As a result, the RUP1 probe eliminates the need for skilled operators to interpret oscilloscope screens and releases shop floor space occupied by the dedicated immersion tanks.

The use of ultrasonics for single-sided measurement of part thickness also delivers clear advantages over traditional tactile probing techniques for parts where access to internal features is challenging.

The RUP1 is fully integrated into MODUS™ metrology software (version 1.12) and UCCsuite (version 5.8).

Elastomere tip balls for RUP1

Aircraft landing gear parts, power generation drive shafts, and hollow aerospace blades are only a few parts that will significantly benefit from using the RUP1 system.

RUP1 features and benefits

  • RUP1 ultrasonic probe is fully compatible with the MRS2 change rack and is automatically interchangeable with all other probes available for the REVO system.
  • The RUP1 probe uses a 20 MHz transducer and provides a thickness measurement range of 1 mm to 20 mm with an accuracy of better than 25 microns using touch points.
  • The use of an innovative elastomer tip ball provides excellent coupling between the probe and the material, and eliminates the need for water tanks or coupling gel to enable a good transmission of the signal.
  • Overcoming the need for skilled operators to interpret oscilloscope screens reduces costs.
  • The RUP1 ultrasonic probe is fully integrated into MODUS and UCCsuite metrology software, including features such as:
    • geometry and material calibration
    • tip ball size monitoring and compensation
    • automatic calculation of REVO head positions based on the back-wall angle for non-parallel surfaces
    • tip life monitoring
  • A standalone signal viewer is also available which provides experts with a graphical view of the measurements.
