This is the PH20 #A-5669-0001. It includes the PH20 head with standard force module TP20.

PH20 – a dramatic impact on inspection timescales, capability and flexibility

  • PH20 brings 5-axis measurement capability to touch-trigger applications on all sizes of CMM
  • Increased throughput – up to 3x faster than indexing heads
  • Easy access to features at any angle with infinite positioning
  • Faster calibration
  • Integral industry standard TP20 probe
  • Improved touch-trigger metrology performance
  • Available on new CMMs or as a retrofit

Increased CMM throughput

  • Unique ‘head touches’ allow measurement points to be taken using only the head and not the CMM structure
  • 5-axis controlled motion between features eliminates indexing time
  • Together, these speed increases result in a typical 3-fold improvement in throughput

Easy access to features at any angle

  • Infinite positioning capability guarantees optimal feature access,
    minimising stylus changes, especially when probe-extension
    clearance is small
  • 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 coordinate system,
    avoiding stylus collisions and the requirement for accurate

Faster calibration

  • Unique ‘inferred calibration’ technique determines the head orientation and probe position in a single operation, allowing subsequent measurement at any head angle
  • Dramatic time savings accumulate as the calibration process is repeated on a regular basis to comply with quality procedures or following a probe crash
  • Enhanced metrology performance is also available by calibrating the probe tip at the feature orientation

PH20 system

  • Integral TP20 probe mount to optimise working volume of CMM
  • Compatible with the existing range of proven TP20 probe modules: wide selection of trigger forces, directional sensing options and extensions to meet application requirements*
  • Detachable modules provide crash protection
  • Modules can be changed automatically using the TCR20 change rack

* Except for the extended force module

Improved touch-trigger metrology performance

  • Repeatability is improved when ‘head touch’ method is used
  • Accuracy is improved by using feature orientation based calibration and ‘head touches’
  • Pre-travel variation is automatically compensated
  • Module changing – automatic tip offset correction

Available with your new CMM or as retrofit to existing equipment

  • Compact design – suitable for a wide range of CMMs using shank or quill mounting
  • Renishaw CMM controller – I++DME communication, wide selection of metrology software
  • Index head compatibility – no requirement to modify existing programs in the majority of cases
  • Integral TP20 probe – allows re-use of existing equipment
  • Mechanical bearings – no air supply required

Hardware integration

  • The PH20 system is only available with the UCC T5 controller
  • SPA3 is a servo power amplifier used to power the CMM
  • MCUlite-2 / MCU5 / MCU5-2 / MCU W / MCU W-2 are the multi-function hand control units available for use with the PH20 system
