Advanced Industrial Measurement Systems (AIMS) fully shop-hardened Revolution® CMMs are a mobile 5-axis shop floor CMM featuring Renishaw technology including PH20 probe, scale systems, software controller, and more.

Built in its Dayton, Ohio, facilities, it features a durable, roll-around base and sealed components that provide enhanced stable metrology performance even in the midst of a chaotic shop floor. Features include:

Shop-hardened design

Polymer cast base for thermal stability

Built-in vibration resistance

No shop air required

Uses standard 110 volt power

Monitor installed on left or right

Optional temperature compensation

Heavy duty locking castors

Internal wiring eliminates snags

Available in two sizes: 5.9.4 and 8.1 0.6

The Revolution® LM Series air bearing bridge configuration offers advanced measuring platforms fully equipped with next generation 5-axis probing technology combined with the speed and efficiency of linear motor power. This provides triple the productivity of conventional touch probe CMM’s with over five times the scanning productivity.

These lab grade CMMs are designed with advanced CAD design technology and feature flexible and precise instruments able to carry out measurements both in point-to-point mode as well as continuous measurements with contact sensors and lasers.

Revolution® LM Series Lab Grade CMM technical highlights include:

Worktop structure with granite work plate incorporated, three points supporting system to the ground. Large Z -axis ram in light aluminum alloy able to use wide range of motorized probe heads.

Mobile bridge is constructed of aluminum alloy for higher rigidity with lower weight to reduce inertia effects. Delivers greater accuracy and repeatability.

Linear motor magnetic drive system for the X and Y-axis provides smooth, quiet acceleration and linear velocity. No mechanical linkages, pulleys, or belts means the linear drive typically needs no regular maintenance.

Optical scales are free to expand lengthwise. The expansion coefficient is precisely determined on scales and the material guarantees a uniform reaction to temperature variations. The hysteresis of the scales is minimal as the steel scales are “floating” in the aluminum carrier. Resolution is 0.1 microns.

Pneumatic counterbalance (adjustable) for Z.

AIMS Renewal® Software for old systems provides a virtual connection between your existing CMM to Renishaw’s new MODUS™ CMM software. Most CMMs are in good condition, just the software is outdated. A software-only upgrade is a fraction of the price of a comparable new machine.

Upgrading the CMM to MODUS™ software provides more capability with simple, fast and intuitive CAD-driven programming and easy to interpret graphical reports and includes:

Powerful CAD Capability Programming Off-line and/or on-line straight from the CAD model reduces development time

Graphical Reports instead of reams of text

Industry standard DMIS programming language

I++ DME communication protocol with the CMM controller via AIMS Renewal® software

Certified measurement algorithms
