Renishaw Machine Tool Probes
OTS 3D touch-trigger tool setter
Compact 3D touch-trigger tool setter with optical signal transmission used for broken tool detection and rapid measurement of tool length and diameter on a wide range of tools. Compatible with Renishaw optical modulated receiver
Machine Tool Probes
Suitable for small to medium machining centres, the OMP400 ultra-compact probe features patented RENGAGE strain gauge technology. It delivers unrivaled submicron performance when applied to complex 3D shapes and contours. Advanced capabilities include machine tool performance monitoring and on-machine verification.
High accuracy styli
Investigations into the effect of the design and construction of styli using such a highly specified ball have indicated that the form of the ball can be degraded by machining a hole in it and through distortion from glueing it onto a spigot. Renishaw has researched ways to improve the design of the high accuracy Grade 3 ball styli. All Grade 3 styli being produced by Renishaw are constructed using an undrilled ball bonded into a spherical cup. Measurements taken before and after assembly of this design have shown that the form of the ball remains well within specification throughout the process. In order to easily identify a Grade 3 ball stylus, the stems are coated in Titanium Nitride, giving them a gold coloured finish. Due to limits of measurement capability and bond strength, Grade 3 ball styli are only available with a minimum ball diameter of 2 mm. The styli are not serialised and are supplied with a certificate of roundness..
