Renishaw PH20

Enhance Your CMM Performance with Renishaw's PH20: 5-Axis Probing Technology.

Renishaw's PH20 5-Axis probing technology has the ability to completely transform the performance of a CMM machine. This tool offers unique technology for rapid touch-trigger measurement, and has fast infinite 5-axis positioning to guarantee optimal feature access. It also has a compact design and is the perfect solution for retrofitting the vast majority of existing CMM touch-trigger installations.

Transform Your Measurement Capabilities

Experience a quantum leap in coordinate measuring machine (CMM) performance with the Renishaw PH20. This state-of-the-art tool offers unparalleled 5-axis technology that speeds up measurement processes and enhances precision and repeatability. The PH20 is designed explicitly for retrofitting most existing CMM touch-trigger installations, making it a versatile and essential upgrade for your quality assurance processes.

Rapid, Accurate Measurements with Unique 5-Axis Technology

Unlike traditional touch-trigger measurement methods that depend on the slower motion of the CMM's 3 axes, the PH20 utilizes advanced head motion technology from the award-winning REVO system. This approach minimizes dynamic errors at higher speeds, allowing quicker and more accurate measurements. The innovative 'head touches' technique enables the probe to take points by moving only the head rather than the entire CMM structure, leading to a significant reduction in measurement time and a typical threefold improvement in throughput compared to conventional systems.

Optimal Feature Access and Reduced Setup Time

The PH20's infinite positioning capability ensures optimal feature access from any angle, minimizing the need for stylus changes and complex fixture setups. Its synchronized 5-axis motion allows larger parts to be measured within the confines of existing CMM space by reducing the necessary clearance for head rotation. This capability is essential for industries where maximizing space and equipment efficiency is critical.

Simplified Calibration with 'Inferred Calibration' Technique

The PH20 introduces a unique 'inferred calibration' method, streamlining the calibration process by determining the head's orientation and probe position in a single operation. This simplified process not only saves time but also enhances overall metrology performance. Regular recalibration, vital for maintaining compliance with quality procedures or after a probe crash, becomes significantly less burdensome, further enhancing productivity.

Seamless Integration with Industry-Standard TP20 Modules

Integrating the PH20 with Renishaw's proven TP20 probe modules offers a broad array of trigger forces, directional sensing options, and extensions tailored to specific application requirements. These modules provide added crash protection and can be effortlessly swapped using the TCR20 change rack, ensuring continuous operation and flexibility in handling diverse measurement tasks.


The Renishaw PH20 probe with 5-Axis technology represents a groundbreaking advancement in CMM technology, offering faster, more accurate measurements, effortless calibration, and exceptional flexibility in retrofit applications. Upgrade your CMM with the PH20 and empower your business with cutting-edge technology that drives efficiency, reduces operational costs, and dramatically improves measurement throughput. Embrace the future of precision with Renishaw's PH20—where every measurement counts.
