The RMP600 touch probe from Renishaw combines high-accuracy strain gauge sensing with frequency-hopping, spread-spectrum radio transmission to provide high precision for machine tool measurement of 3-D aerospace parts. The design allows part checking precision of five-axis machining, contours, and deep cavities, which can block transmission by optical line-of-sight probes. The probe enables rapid, automated part setup and changeover, in-process control of critical dimensions, and final inspection on certain parts to speed throughput. Robust construction, compact design, solid-state electronics, and interference-free signal transmission allow application to all sizes of machining centers, harsh machine environments, and noisy plant floors with competing wireless Wi-Fi communications. Rengage technology combines a sensing mechanism and advanced electronics to allow sub-micron 3-D probe performance on contoured surfaces, even with long styli.
