5-Axis Excellence

Advanced Probing Powered by Verisurf Software


Along with modern CMM head, sensor, and controller technologies, new 5-axis pathing methods from Verisurf software deliver high-performance measuring speed and flexibility. Furthermore, it’s achieved while avoiding the speed-versus-accuracy compromises inherent with conventional methods.

Five-axis motion allows the stylus to follow a continuous path along complex contours without leaving the part surface to index the probe angle or change the stylus. Controller algorithms synchronizing CMM and head motion, produce optimal probe paths that minimize dynamic errors.

There are extensive productivity gains offered by 5-axis probing, as it dramatically reduces the number of setups and special fixturing. It also allows fewer probe changes and requirements for unique probes, which are common in 3-axis probing.

5-axis measurement technology achieves 15% to 50% cycle time savings

Minimizes the dynamic effects of CMM motion at high measurement speeds

Is ideal for complex, 5-axis machined, mill-turned, or additive manufactured parts
Up to 5 times faster to program and setup a 5-axis versus 3-axis CMM

Verisurf Unique Techniques

Verisurf adds new and unique measurement techniques improving the speed and accuracy of 5-axis enabled CMMs.

Standard Techniques

Verisurf supports all standard 5-axis probing techniques. You can use the same program for either PH20 or REVO.

Section Scanning Technique

Section scanning results in a single operation defined by a section through the CAD model. With 5-axis infinite positioning, the CMM moves around the part while the 5-axis head controls the contact position.

5-Axis Techniques for Aerospace

Aerospace parts are ideal for 5-axis CMMs powered by Verisurf. With complex surface profiles, precision fastener patterns and tight tolerances aerospace parts have thousands of holes, slots and pockets which is why moving the CMM structure less increases both speed and accuracy.

Verisurf Spiral Scanning

Spiral scanning enables CMM programmers to accurately and quickly, produce point clouds that cover the entire turbine blade or propellor surface.

5-Axis Techniques for Automotive

Helical scanning is applied to the valve guide bore and valve seat area while adaptive scanning allows a single scan command to cover the areas above and below the critical valve seat surfaces. Combined these 5-axis techniques dramatically increase throughput.
