Marposs Radio Transmission Scanning Probe for On-Machine Part Measurement

Parts can be checked for defects without being transferred to a measurement lab

Published: Monday, October 8, 2018 - 12:00

(Marposs: Auburn Hills, MI) -- Marposs announces the availability of its WRSP60 high-accuracy scanning probes for checking part profiles directly on machining centers and milling machines in real time. Parts can be checked for defects without being transferred to a measurement lab, eliminating the need to reload and reposition the part for any necessary reworking, improving the process and optimizing cycle time.

The WRSP60 probes can be used to check the quality of the part profile, compensate for part misalignment, perform surface deformation checks that provide compensation information for the cutting program, perform comparisons with the master, check the run out, and enable the “touch” necessary for positioning the part; operations that are impossible with touch probes or that would result in greatly increased cycle times.

The system transmits the data via radio to a WRI receiver using a communication protocol that offers excellent immunity to interference and reduced power consumption. The data are collected, analyzed, and displayed by a proprietary Marposs’ software package. The WRSP60 also features a multichannel system that enables the same receiver to manage up to 12 systems sequentially, including Marposs WRS part-contact probes.

These scanning probes have a transmission range of 15 meters, making them well-suited for large machines. They provide measurement performance on 3D surfaces with unidirectional repeatability within 0,4 µm and a better life of 80 hours continuous operation.
