Revo 5 Axis Scanning
REVO 5 AXIS SCANNING Faster scanning, shorter cycle time.

In conventional 3D scanning measurement methods the CMM performs all the movements necessary to acquire the surface data. Acceleration forces induce inertia deflections into the CMM 3d scanning frame structure, which in turn induce measurement errors.

Consistency in production, efficiency to meet changing demands
Consistency in production, efficiency to meet changing demands.

We love granite. It's the primary building material for our machines for the main reason that it provides the most metrologically stable base to build our high accuracy CMMs from. For one, it's what our company is founded on. Our ability to efficiently build CMMs from granite we process in-house is a cornerstone of what we do. We've used the same quarry to make the granite bases and components for all Wenzel CMMs. And we've help ensure processes for handling the massive granite stones have improved, allowing us to utilize more from a single block of stone. We've also streamlined the manufacturing process by combining the cutting grinding and milling operations into one complete process. These types of innovations improve our efficiency and increase the flexibility of our production schedule to react faster to changing demands.

Wenzel helps TURBOCAM develop a custom inspection processes.

TURBOCAM were early adopters of 5-axis machining which they had used to produce high performance turbomachinery parts in diverse industries since 1992. "We were looking for a partner that could offer us a full engineering solution, not just off-the-shelf CMMs and canned software," said Dave Romaine, TURBOCAM's Quality Manager.

Their search soon brought them to Wenzel America in Wixom, Michigan. TURBOCAM's team knew WENZEL was the world's largest family-owned metrology company and that they were also familiar with 5-axis pioneers, Renishaw, since Wenzel used their probes exclusively on their CMMs. When the TURBOCAM team arrived, they were shown a WENZEL LH87 that happened to be running a Renishaw REVO scanning probe. As 5-axis early adopters they were familiar with Renishaw's newest developments, but this was only the second REVO head produced, and their first in-person look at its capabilities. Partnering with Wenzel America allowed TURBOCAM to use their engineering resources to develop the custom inspection processes they needed as a 5-axis machining company. Their first Wenzel machine was an LH 8-10-7 CMM with the third REVO probe head ever produced. Today, they are standardized on REVO probes in all new production systems.
