Inspecting the thickness of a part’s walls is typically a time-consuming manual process that takes place off the machine tool, resulting in downtime. The new RWP20.50-G-UTP touch probe from Hexagon transforms the procedure by using ultrasound to automatically measure wall thickness within the machine tool installation.
Integrating Hexagon’s proven, innovative radio-wave technology, the RWP20.50-G-UTP operates in the 2.4 GHz frequency range. Like other probes from Hexagon, the RWP20.50-G-UTP has a robust, modular design and can be converted into a dimensional or temperature probe simply by changing the measuring unit. And unlike other ultrasonic solutions, the RWP20.50-G-UTP works without any coupling fluids, which simplifies operations and keeps parts cleaner.
Supported by dedicated thickness measurement software, the RWP20.50-G-UTP is compatible with the control software for Siemens, Heidenhain and Fanuc tooling machines, making it easy to capture and visualize measurement data directly on the shop floor and to export it for use in other programs.
