Verisurf Software, Inc. has announced its support for the Renishaw RUP1 (REVO Ultrasonic Probe), introducing an innovative solution for ultrasonic thickness probing. This advancement streamlines the measurement and reporting of thickness requirements, and the upcoming Verisurf 2024 release will showcase the integration of the RUP1.
Using the robust Dynamic Surface Points tool, Verisurf’s Inspection Plans now seamlessly incorporate ultrasonic thickness measurements. These measurements are meticulously stored and presented using a graphical balloon, providing recipients of the report with a clear and comprehensible thickness map associated with the inspected component. The RUP1 facilitates thickness evaluation for typical metal parts within the range of 1mm (.039″) to 20mm (.787″) in thickness, boasting an accuracy of .01mm (.0004″) on parallel surfaces and .100mm (.0039″) on wedged surfaces with an angle of up to 10 degrees.
Verisurf Software effectively operates Renishaw-equipped CNC CMMs via the Verisurf Device Interface (VDI), ensuring seamless communication with a diverse array of 3D measurement devices. The VDI empowers customers to choose their preferred devices while providing a standardized solution that comprehensively supports design, tolerancing, validation, machining, assembly, measurement, inspection planning, reporting, analysis, and reverse engineering.
