RPI Launchs TruMotion Rotary Table, Delivering Standards Lab Accuracy to the Shopfloor

Visit RPI at the Control international trade fair for quality assurance, May 3–6, 2022, in Stuttgart, Germany

Published: Tuesday, April 26, 2022 - 11:59

(RPI: Bath, UK) -- RPI UK, a world leader in precision rotation and angular positioning, will launch the TruMotion rotary table at Control 2022.

TruMotion verifies small or medium circular parts with a world-class accuracy more commonly seen in the standards laboratory.

Manufacturers in the high-precision and general machining industries will be able to check roundness to the required accuracy of any turned or ground parts.

TruMotion is operated manually and enables the inspection of circular components such as pinions and gears, gauges, bearings, aero engine components, and optical assemblies in a production environment.

It will be used to measure small and medium-sized round parts, with dimensions of up to Ø400 mm x 220 mm high and weighing up to 50 kg. TruMotion has a radially adjustable, articulated probe holder and an axial and radial bearing performance of less than 1 micron.

Peter Marchbank, MD of RPI, said: “Precision engineering companies, from global producers to small machining workshops, will now be able to easily verify and inspect small and medium-sized circular parts with the required accuracy. Come and see it for yourself at booth 7105, hall 7.”

RPI grew out of acquisitions from Optical Measuring Tools, Airmatic, Horstmannn, and Eimeldingen. It’s now one of the world’s largest designers and manufacturers of solution-driven, highly accurate inspection systems and services that measure circular geometry and angular positioning.

Using its more than 75 years of rotary expertise, RPI supplies progressive engineering industries, including the aerospace, gas, turbine and dimensional metrology sectors, with exceedingly dependable, low-maintenance products with a service life measured in decades, not just years.
