Motorised indexing heads allow flexible and repeatable probe re-orientation.
The range comprises three PH10 models, each of which can carry a range of probes and extensions and can be orientated in 720 repeatable positions, giving access to the most difficult-to-reach workpiece features.
In May 2009 Renishaw introduced a series of design enhancements for its range of PH10 motorised heads, resulting in a 20% improvement in repeatability and increased long term stability.
All three variants of the new PH10 heads are now supplied with a revised repeatability specification, down from 0.5 µm (2σ) to just 0.4 µm (2σ) (specified at a distance of 62 mm), giving users improved positioning at the stylus tip. The new specification heads are physically differentiated by a new ‘aqua blast’ finish which gives a modern, matt black appearance.
