Renishaw's new RLP40 and OLP40 lathe inspection probes offer a choice of signal transmission technologies, radio or optical, to make part set-up and inspection on turning centres accurate, simple and reliable. Measuring just 40 mm in diameter and 58.3 mm long, the probes provide uni-directional repeatability of 1µm and can be used to reduce set-up times, scrap, and fixture costs, while improving process control. Both designs are hardened and sealed to IPX8 to withstand the extreme environments typical of lathes and turning centres.
