CMM upgrades and retrofits
In short, having three 5-axis CMMs operating in a dedicated measurement room means we not only get extremely precise measurements, we get them very rapidly as well. By dramatically increasing measurement speed and significantly reducing production machinery downtime, the business has gained a serious productivity advantage.

Most CMM structures are not subject to high levels of wear and so remain serviceable for many years. Software, control systems and sensors, however, can become outdated as new, faster and more capable ones are introduced.
A Renishaw retrofit offers the opportunity to transform existing CMMs, providing greater accuracy, faster measurement, more automation and new capabilities, whilst taking full advantage of CAD-driven programming.
PH20 5-axis touch trigger system
PH20's unique ‘head touches' allow measurement points to be taken by moving only the head, rather than the CMM structure. Points can be taken faster, and with improved accuracy and repeatability.
PH20's infinite positioning capability guarantees optimal feature access, minimising stylus changes. The 5-axis simultaneous motion allows larger parts to be measured on the CMM by minimising the space required around the part for head rotation. PH20 automatically aligns itself with the part co-ordinate system, avoiding stylus collisions and the requirement for accurate fixtures.
