On-machine scanning for high-speed, high-accuracy in-process control applications
click here for more images The SPRINT system incorporates a new generation of on-machine scanning technology that will deliver a step-change in the benefits of process control, enabling fast and accurate form and profile data capture from both prismatic and complex 3D components.
For blade the manufacturer, the SPRINT system provides unprecedented capability for blade tip refurbishment and root blending applications. For multi-task machining applications, the SPRINT machine tool scanning system offers users completely new process control capabilities, including exceptionally repeatable diameter measurement cycles.
Additional functionality offered by the SPRINT system provides a rapid health-check of a CNC machine tool`s linear and rotary axes in seconds, making it possible to implement a daily machine monitoring regime with little or no operator involvement. The SPRINT system brings exceptional high-speed, high-accuracy scanning to CNC machine tools.
It records a constant stream of accurate 3D points across the part surface and analyses this data in real time on the CNC machine tool controller to provide game-changing opportunities for automated in-process control.
To maximize the potential offered by the superior technology and capability of the SPRINT system, Renishaw has produced a number of industry-focussed applications allowing scanning to be easily adopted as the next generation of on-machine probing.
