PH20’s unique ‘head touches’ allow measurement points to be taken by moving only the head rather than the CMM structure. Using only the rapid rotary motion of the head, points can be taken faster, and with improved accuracy and repeatability. Furthermore, 5-axis motion eliminates time spent indexing the head. Together these speed increases typically result in a 3-fold improvement in throughput over conventional systems.
The 5-axis Rensihaw PH20 makes use of specially developed ‘inferred calibration’. Both the head orientation and the probe position are determined in a simultaneous operation allowig subsequent measurement using any head orientation. Only a few touches of the qualification sphere are required to perform a calibration. If additional accuracy is required, the PH20 can be calibrated in the individual orientation required for a particular measuirement routine. Over a period of time and numerous calibrations, the time savings over conventional probe calibrations can be quite substantial.
