Non-Contact Vision Probe
Renishaw's RVP probe enables non-contact inspection to the tactile scanning and surface finish measurement capability of the REVO system.
The Renishaw RVP vision measurement probe was developed for use with the REVO 5-axis measurement system on co-ordinate measuring machines (CMMs), increases the multi-sensor capability of REVO by adding non-contact inspection to the existing touch-trigger, high-speed tactile scanning and surface finish measurement capability of the system. RVP utilizes the 5-axis motion and infinite positioning provided by the REVO head. The RVP system consists of a probe and a range of modules that are automatically interchangable with all other probe options available for REVO. Data from multiple sensors is automatically referenced to a common datum. When using the probe, part illumination is provided by integrated programmable LED lighting inside each module. Background feature enhancement is also available using backlighting combined with custom part fixturing. The system is managed by the same I++ DME compliant interface as REVO and full user functionality is provided by Renishaw’s MODUS metrology software.
