Verisurf® Software Announces Ultrasonic Thickness Inspection with Renishaw® RUP1 Ultrasonic Probe
June 23, 2023, Anaheim, Calif – Verisurf Software, Inc. announces support for the Renishaw RUP1 (REVO® Ultrasonic Probe), providing an ultrasonic thickness probing solution to automate the measurement and reporting of thickness requirements.
Support for the RUP1 will be featured in the upcoming Verisurf 2024 release. Leveraging the powerful Dynamic Surface Points tool, Inspection Plans within Verisurf now incorporate ultrasonic thickness measurements. These measurements are stored and presented through a graphical balloon, providing recipients of the report with an easy-to-read thickness map associated with the inspected component. With the RUP1, thickness evaluation is possible for typical metal parts ranging from 1mm (0.039″) to 20mm (0.787″) in thickness, with an accuracy of 0.01mm (0.0004″) on parallel surfaces and 0.100mm 0(.0039″) on wedged surfaces with an angle of up to 10 degrees.
Verisurf Software operates Renishaw-equipped CNC CMMs through the Verisurf Device Interface (VDI), facilitating seamless communication with a wide range of 3D measurement devices. The VDI empowers customers to select their preferred devices while offering a standardized solution that supports design, tolerancing, validation, machining, assembly, measurement, inspection planning, reporting, analysis, and reverse engineering.
