Jim Palmer, RPI’s sales manager, said: “I’m pleased to say we had a very busy week at Control 2019. Our new look exhibition space and location drew many new visitors, and we were thrilled to launch the QuadProfile system which delivers a brand-new capability into the CMM market. Not only this, but we gauged plenty of interest by previewing the RotoScan concept which was being demonstrated at the front of stand. As always, this event is also a great opportunity to meet with our distributors and customers, and we’ve taken away some really interesting new sales leads.”
Taking place from 6-10 May, RPI launched its all new QuadProfile, the smallest and most accurate rotary table for turbine blade inspection on a CMM. The new addition to the Quadrant range further enhances RPI’s product portfolio enabling the ultimate in low profile and compact rotary table design for the CMM market. With more than 750 successful CMM rotary tables already in the field, the quadrant range provides an additional axis for the CMM to increase its application range and effective measuring volume.
In addition to this, the RotoScan system previewed, was designed to automate the inspection of heavy-duty circular components which have a large diameter, examples include bearings, aerospace castings and rotors. It used a robot to automate the inspection capability of components using traditional contact metrology techniques to improve the repeatability and reproducibility of the measurements. Developed with AccuScan software, it also compliments RPI’s other assembly platforms such as iMAP and GeoSpin.
In addition to these new developments, RPI also demonstrated its LabStandard range which offer sub arc second angular accuracy and precision geometry for inspection and calibration labs, with the versatility of both single and dual axis.
