    I saw one in use and my jaw hit the floor. This thing is so fast and accurate but pricey.

      I am wondering how well this thing works in the real world? You know how that goes sometimes, not as advertised.!?

        inspector212,
        What type of machine was this on? And does PC-dmis have the ability to utilize this that you know of?
        Thanks Mike

          According to the B&S rep in my area, this thing is not ready for the real world. But of course he would say that. The new Tesa heads that Hexagon is making are an indication that they would like to get away from Renishaw if possible.

              I have the Tesabut I have the SP25 Renishaw scanning Probe on it. It is pretty darn fast, I mean I probly could turn it up to that speed I just dont know what the accurecy is. Did you know that the SP25 Renishaw head is run by a internal laser. And it never leaves the part once it starts its scanning. Its pretty impressive.

                One of the divisions of my company has one and is testing it. I also heard that GE engines has two of them.

                I heard of the accuracy by word of mouth by the programmer who was using it. The basis for this head is that if you take out the machine X, Y or Z movement you will remove variation and it is true, so I hear.

                It was on a Wenzel machine when I saw it and it was not running PC-DMIS but I believe, also from word of mouth, that PC-DMIS will run it.

                  They will send you a demo disk if you want one.They sent me one.So far it is not supported by brown & sharp.

                        You are corect inspector212. It is in fact a Wenzel Machine. We are currently looking at new cmm's. The Wenzel guy was the only one who pointed out the Machine manufacturer. When we asked the others, "we're working on it" was the response.

                        As I understand it currently the only combo capable of any useful data at that speed is on a Wenzel with a UCC2 from Renishaw. There must be a reason for Renishaw to choose Wenzel over The other makers.

                          This probe will be perfect for machined parts, but thin materials, sharp edges or burrs on sheet metal...I doubt it.
                          Very impressive though

                            I wonder the accuracy on this kind of probing though. On the site they mention using a very low force when doing these scans. One would imagine the pain of filtering this kind of data for accuracy. That surface had better be smooth as a baby's bottom to get good results.

                              I thought contact measurement was dead technology, eventhough it's my bread & butter. I think one day laser scanning will be good enough to use for everything, but when? Is this that much superior to devalue our existing equipment? I don't think so.
