Mitutoyo Offers Sales and Support for Renishaw Probe System
April 4, 2014—Mitutoyo America Corporation is pleased to announce sales and support of the Renishaw PH20 probe system with the Crysta-Apex S500/700/900 series Coordinate Measuring Machines by Mitutoyo. The Crysta-Apex CMM line offers durability and high accuracy at an affordable price. It supports a wide range of inspections solutions including laser scanning, optical, and surface roughness inspection. With the addition of the high-speed scanning capabilities of the PH20 the Crysta-Apex CMM becomes the ideal solution for just about any part inspection, in the quality lab or on the shop floor.
The 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. Users of the PH20 probe head will immediately have access to the range of proven TP20 probe modules, providing a wide selection of trigger forces, directional sensing options and extensions to meet application requirements. The detachable modules provide crash protection and can be automatically changed using the TCR20 change rack (optional accessory).
The TCR20 is a compact probe module rack for use with PH20 that provides the capability for quick and repeatable tool changing and tip correction based on the MCR20 rack systems. It securely stores modules for rapid automatic changing and protecting mating surfaces from any airborne contaminants within the working envelope of the machine. The TCR20 supports the full range of TP20 modules which are compatible with the PH20 system and features an integrated tip datum artifact in the center of the rack assembly, minimizing the cycle time of the tip correct procedure.
