Jim Palmer, RPI’s sales manager, said: “TruMotion is our latest innovation in the measurement of circular geometry (TIR) for internal and external diameters and faces of small and medium sized round parts in shop floor machining and grinding applications such as gears, gauges, bearings and aero engine components. Not only does it provide a solution to market requirement, but delivers a high specification offer at a very competitive price.”
He added: “This year we will be exhibiting alongside our North American partners, Wyvern Industrial Technology. The American market is a big one for us and the Quality show is a great opportunity for us to engage with our target customers and other manufacturing professionals.”
The TruMotion range of precision, manual spin, mechanical bearing rotary tables is designed to inspect circular components in a shop floor environment, whilst maintaining world class accuracies more commonly seen in the standards laboratory.
The inspection system will be available in two sizes (200mm and 400mm) with a maximum load capacity of 50kgs, offering radial and axial runout targeted at 3 microns. Its user-friendly interface with an optional touch screen display also offers single or double channel data capture.
Also being demonstrated at the show will be QuadProfile, a brand-new capability to the CMM market for 2019, as the smallest and most accurate rotary table for turbine blade inspection. The new addition to RPI’s Quadrant range, further enhances the product portfolio enabling the ultimate in low profile and compact rotary table design for the CMM market.
The Quadrant range of rotary tables provide an additional axis for any high precision CMM inspecting component parts such as gas turbine discs and fan blades. The part is simply rotated to meet the CMM’s measurement probe rather than the three-axis probe being programmed to reach multiple measurement points around a part.
Not only does this simplify the measurement procedure, it helps to deliver fast and accurate indexing as well as increase the CMM’s application range and effective measuring volume. Overall, this improves the flexibility, productivity and efficiency of the CMM inspection. RPI have more than 750 successful CMM (Coordinate Measuring Machine) rotary table installations worldwide.
