High-Speed, Five-Axis Scanning

Renscan5 high-speed, five-axis part scanning uses technologies that exceed coordinate measuring machine (CMM) scanning speeds by 10 to 20 times more. The system integrates five-axis machine control with a high-speed, infinite-positioning Revo measuring head, a laser-corrected probe and a UCC2 universal CMM controller. The machine allows scanning speeds of as much as 500 mm/sec.

Renscan5 high-speed, five-axis part scanning uses technologies that exceed coordinate measuring machine (CMM) scanning speeds by 10 to 20 times more. The system integrates five-axis machine control with a high-speed, infinite-positioning Revo measuring head, a laser-corrected probe and a UCC2 universal CMM controller.

The machine allows scanning speeds of as much as 500 mm/sec. The system design virtually eliminates the measurement errors normally associated with existing three-axis systems that move the CMM for probe positioning, the company says. The five-axis system achieves this by allowing the smaller Revo measuring head to perform most of the motion during inspection routines, minimizing the dynamic errors caused when moving the larger mass of CMM structures. The CMM can move at a constant velocity along a constant vector as measurements are being taken, removing the inertial errors that result from machine acceleration/deceleration during conventional, three-axis scanning.
