Renishaw's PH20 probe head has fast,
infinite positioning capability and is designed for use with the TP20
touch-trigger probe. The new PH20 head brings 5-axis inspection capability to
smaller CMMs for the first time by optimizing the working volume of the
measurement platform. The PH20 is available for new CMMs, as well as retrofit
machines using shank or quill mounting. It can use most existing inspection
programs for indexing heads without modification and requires no compressed
PH20 probe head offers time savings with synchronized motion of the head and
CMM between measurements. Its rapid "inferred calibration" technique
determines head orientation and probe position in a single operation, allowing
subsequent measurements at any head angle.
incorporates the TP20 touch-trigger probe, affording access to a range of
proven probe modules and wide selection of trigger forces, directional sensing
options and extensions to meet application requirements. Current users of TP20
systems can upgrade to the PH20 and utilize all existing modules, with the
exception of the extended-force module.
PH20 system uses a Renishaw UCC controller, which provides connection to
existing metrology and application software through the established I++
protocol. As a retrofit package, the PH20 comes with the controller and
Renishaw's MODUS metrology software for an integrated solution.
Festo's BionicKangaroo combines pneumatic and electrical drive technology, plus very precise controls and condition monitoring. Like a real kangaroo, the BionicKangaroo robot harvests the kinetic energy of each takeoff and immediately uses it to power the next jump.
