Multi-Sensor 5 Axis CMM Now Includes Surface Finish Measurement Sensor

Renishaw PLC has introduced the SFP2, a new, improved surface finish measurement probe, for use with its REVO 5-axis measurement system on coordinate measuring machines (CMM).

The SFP2 probe provides surface finish measurement ability to the REVO system, which offers a multi-sensor capability providing touch-trigger, high-speed tactile scanning, and non-contact vision measurement on a single CMM.

Combining surface finish measurement and dimensional inspection on the CMM presents unrivalled advantages over traditional inspection methods requiring a separate process. Powered by 5-axis measurement technology, the SFP2’s automated surface finish inspection offers significant time savings, reduced part handling and greater return on CMM investment.

The SFP2 system consists of a probe and a range of modules and is automatically interchangeable with all other probe options available for REVO. This provides the flexibility to easily select the optimum tool to inspect a wide range of features on the same CMM platform. Data from multiple sensors is automatically referenced to a common datum.

The surface finish system is managed by the same I++ DME compliant interface as the REVO system, and full user functionality is provided by Renishaw’s MODUS metrology software.
