When used in conjunction with a low cost changer, the Revo system's removable probes provide added system flexibility, enabling manufacturers to carry out more measurements on the same machine.

At EMO 2021 in Milan/Italy, Renishaw is promoting its flexible Revo 5-axis CMM inspection technologies, including a brand new sensor, and enhancements and updates to its existing range of probes.

The new RUP1 ultrasonic probe for use with the Revo system adds automated ultrasonic thickness inspection to the system's existing CMM inspection capabilities. Ultrasonic thickness measurement delivers clear advantages over traditional tactile probing techniques for parts where access to internal features is challenging. Aircraft landing gear parts, power generation drive shafts, and hollow aerospace blades are all parts where the RUP1 probe will be of benefit.

EMO visitors can see a demonstration of the RUP1 system measuring the wall thickness of a tubular aerospace component at the Renishaw stand (hall 5, stand C14).
