  • Renishaw AM1 and AM2 adjustment modules

    Anybody out there have any experience with these modules?

    They are about an inch or so thick and mount to the quill and then a PH10M or PH10MQ is mounted to this. They provide "roll" adjustment to help square up the probehead to your machine.

    My question:

    A note in the PH10 guide states that (on the AM1 anyway) "...offers the capability of limited crash protection by incorporating a nominal +/- 3.5 degrees overtravel facility."

    Does this work?

    Does it work on the AM2 also? (the guide is unclear on this)

    Is it worth the $750 price tag?

        These modules are for adjusting either the PH10 or PH10MQ so that they are perfectly square to the machine xyz axis travel. They are a necessity in my opinion.
