White paper: Innovative frequency hopping radio transmission probe (pdf)
Inspection probes have become a vital contributor to manufacturing process efficiency, enabling rapid part set-up and batch changeover, plus part verification and in-process control of critical component dimensions. All spindle and turret-mounted probes need a means of signal transmission, with radio transmission being the most common on large machines and 5-axis machining centres. However, there are many challenges to the successful application of radio transmission in the factory, not least different local regulations and sources of interference from other radio-controlled equipment. In 2003, Renishaw introduced the world’s first frequency hopping spread spectrum (FHSS) radio transmission for inspection probes, a robust, compact and universally applicable solution for probing on all but the smallest of machines.
