Inferred Calibration – Key Component of 5-Axis CMM Probing Technology


Inferred calibration is one of the productivity benefits that comes from 5-axis CMM probing technology of the Renishaw REVO® and PH20 systems.

The technique, developed originally for the PH20 determines the head orientation and probe position in a single operation, allowing subsequent measurement at any head angle.

5-axis motion eliminates time spent indexing the head.

The dramatic time savings accumulate as the calibration process is repeated on a regular basis to comply with quality procedures or following a probe crash.

These systems use synchronized motion and Renishaw’s 5-axis measurement technology to minimize the dynamic effects of CMM motion at ultra high measurement speeds. This is achieved by letting the head do the fast demanding motion while the CMM moves in a linear slow fashion.

Together these speed increases typically result in a 3-fold improvement in throughput over conventional systems.
