Renishaw’s Sprint machine tool scanning system is designed for fast, accurate measurement. The system incorporates on-machine analog scanning technology said to enable form and profile data capture from both prismatic and complex 3D components. It also is designed to facilitate automated process control with no operator intervention.

With scanning speeds as fast as 49 ft./min. (15 m/min.) and the ability to measure 1,000 true 3D data points per sec., the system provides workpiece measurement, inspection, adaptive machining and on-machine process control, while optimizing machine utilization and cycle time. It features an OSP60 scanning probe equipped with an analog sensor with 0.1-micron resolution in three dimensions. The sensor provides a continuous deflection output that combines with machine position to derive the true location of the part surface.

Each Sprint application is enabled and supported by software packages dedicated to specific industrial tasks, including toolkits for on-machine data analysis that runs automatically in-cycle and provide measurement feedback to CNC machining processes.
