REVO System

REVO five-axis measurement system

    REVO System

Designed to maximise CMM performance and maintain high system accuracy, this new measuring head and probe system from Renishaw offers countless benefits during part inspection.

 The REVO System offers a 5-axis measurement capability and synchronised motion. It uses Renscan5™ measurement technology to minimise the dynamic effects of CMM motion at ultra high measurement speeds. In recognition of its unique technological design, REVO has received three international technology awards, which include the following:

  • Most Innovative Product Platinum Award at ENGIMACH 2010
  • Innovation Micron d'or Award at Micronora 2008
  • Best quality control product or system winner at the MWP 2008

The REVO head works in a fast demanding motion, while the CMM moves in a linear slow fashion. The use of a flexible tip sensing probe system further adds to the system's accuracy and flexibility.

Also, the removable probe system, used in combination with a low cost changer, provides added system flexibility.

Controller system

The Renscan5 technology is embedded in Renishaw's UCC2 CMM controller.

This particular controller system forms the basis of the 5-axis measurement system. However, two of the axes are rotary and at the CMM quill.

Please note: in order to achieve the high scanning speeds, it is essential that the 5-axis measurement system has a fully integrated control loop. T can be done by using Renishaw's UCC2 and SPA2-2 system.

Revo System Probe Options

revo probe system options

rsp2 scanning probe

RSP2 scanning probe

RSP2 is a dedicated lightweight tip-sensing probe for use on REVO systems, capable of 2D-scanning (x, y) and 3D-touch trigger measurement. The RSP2 has a universal body to which a number of different length stylus holders, with a maximum reach of 500mm, can be fitted.

RSP3 scanning probe

RSP3 scanning probes

RSP3-# range of probes complement the RSP2 probe, providing the REVO system with 3D-scanning (x,y,z) and crank stylus capabilities. It is used for 3-axis scanning, such as with a fixed REVO head angle during measurement. The range of probes allow different lengths of stylus to be used whilst maintaining optimum metrology performance

SFP1 surface finish probe

SFP1 Surface finish probe

Surface finish measurement has traditionally required the use of the hand-held sensors or the part to be moved onto a dedicated measuring machine. The REVO SFP1 probe changes all this, making surface finish inspection an integral part of your CMM measurement procedure and the surface finish analysis part of a single measurement report.
SFP1 is a dedicated lightweight tip-sensing probe for use on REVO systems, capable of surface finish measurement and has a universal body to which different surface finish styli can be fitted.

Revo with Changer

REVO changer system

The REVO probe change system is designed to allow automatic REVO probe and stylus holder changing on a CMM. The primary purpose of the system is to improve flexibility with the ability to use and store longer styli and large star stylus configurations.

For optimum metrology, REVO probes and stylus holders should be changed automatically using REVO change ports (RCPTC and RCP) and a flexible change rack (FCR25). These ports are mounted on the modular rack system (MRS).

Revo calibration on a datum ball

Faster calibration

Calibration on traditional CMM systems consumes a considerable amount of time that could otherwise be used for part measurement. The unique calibration technique developed for REVO determines the actual head and probe geometry, allowing measurement in any position from a single operation, thus dramatically reducing calibration time.

REVO valve seat measurement

REVO valve seat and guide measurement

The measurement of valve seat and guides has traditionally been very challenging, involving time-consuming methods that often do not provide a sufficiently capable measurement.

REVO and Renishaw's Renscan5™ technology change this situation dramatically. It is now possible to collect very quickly large amounts of data, from which the analysis parameters for both the valve seat and the valve guide features can be calculated. The method performs exceptionally well in repeatability and reproducibility tests.

Extended warranty

For peace of mind, a 3-year warranty is available for your new CMM products during the first 3 months from purchase.
