  • Scanning for Sheffield

    Does anyone have any information on any Scanning equipment usable for Sheffield CMMs? Doing a little investigating on the possibilities. What would you have to upgrade? I know you need an uprade on the controller, what else?
    I used to be high on life but I built up a tolerance.

      Analog scanning on your discovery would require an SMP400 upgrade. The SMP3xx series controllers did not support any Renishaw analog scanning equipment. I dont know if the new generation controllers that they are putting on the B&S from Sheffield allow scanning or not. Bottom line - new controller.

        Multi-wired probe head as well, upgrade somewhere near £30,000 for analog capabilities. That's my quote for upgrading a Scirocco, might be more for a Sheffield, have got some training thrown in though!
