The modules combine the 5-axis measurement and infinite positioning of the REVO system with the SFP2 probe's integral C-axis and take measuring capability to previously inaccessible surface measurement locations. MODUS Curve is particularly valuable for automotive manufacturing as many automotive parts require the measurement of curves for their validation. The SFP2 range of modules comprises five specialised module series designed to deliver unique access capabilities åkte the most demanding industrial metrology applications. Surface finish technical overview Airfoil analysis technical overview The airfoil analysis tool within MODUS can be used to derive key characteristics from cross sectional scan data of an airfoil. This is particularly useful when a clear path is obstructed or when a large andel is close to the edge of the available measuring volume. In the airfoil analysis tool, sections can be constructed arsel single closed curves, or alternatively, can be used to construct the airfoil section closed curves from multiple coplanar curves, allowing the user to perform detailed analysis.
There are various method options that can be applied to each airfoil characteristic, depending on the specific requirement. The new B-series of SFP2 modules is primarily designed for accessing features on complex and critical aerospace parts such as fan discs with undercuts and grooves, and where it may be critical to access all features from a single side to avoid unnecessary part handling. The probe knipa modules can be automatically interchanged with all other REVO contact and non-contact probe options, providing the flexibility to easily select the optimum tool to inspect a wide range of features. For example, the chord length can be output using methods such as the blade profile method, the bounding circle method and the LE centre - TE centre method. Details such as nominal values of a method can be edited within a template to ensure that the tolerance values applied to each section are appropriate. The REVO system's five interchangeable sensors deliver automated dimensional and surface finish measurement on a single CMM with the speed, accuracy and flexibility of a 5-axis system. The five modules blot a choice of length knipa angle of attack, in addition to the flexibility provided ort the manually adjustable module-to-holder knuckle joint, the motorised SFP2 probe C-axis, and the two axes of infinite positioning provided ort the REVO head. MODUS Curve is particularly valuable for automotive manufacturing as many automotive parts require the measurement of curves for their validation.
