Verisurf Introduces Renishaw PH20 Probe Support

Verisurf Software has announced its new device support for the Renishaw PH20, 5-axis probe-head. Verisurf customers running the PH20 currently or planning to retrofit their CNC CMMs will realize the power of Verisurf automated inspection software with the full potential of 5-axis probing. Inspection cycle times are reduced by as much as 3X when probing in 5-axis, compared to traditional indexing heads, without sacrificing accuracy.

“Accuracy, speed, flexibility, and overall efficiency are key factors in today’s measurement solutions. Verisurf software controls measurements from virtually any CMM, a process that is limited only by the mechanical capabilities of the machine. The Renishaw PH20 probe-head is very accurate, and through enhanced motion control, improved touch-trigger, and calibration technology, it allows our software to do more, faster,” said Ernie Husted, President and CEO of Verisurf.

Verisurf CMM programming software and the PH20 5-axis probe-head are used to maximize inspection throughput on new or existing CMMs with Renishaw controls. In addition to the enhanced measurement data collection, Verisurf software CAD model-based productivity features speed up the quality inspection and reporting process. Easy object-oriented CMM programming tools quickly create automatic inspection and quality reporting routines, and during inspection, an Auto Inspect panel and feature balloons present real-time deviations of measured features compared to the CAD nominal.

“Support for the PH20, 5-axis probe-head demonstrates Verisurf’s commitment to universal compatibility, providing a common inspection and measurement platform for the total manufacturing enterprise,” added Husted. Using CAD models with associative GD&T, users can quickly create a single inspection plan that can be implemented across all measuring devices, regardless of type or brand, including new and legacy equipment.
