The SFP2 probe is said to enhance the surface finish measurement ability of the Revo system, which offers a multi-sensor capability providing touch-trigger, high-speed tactile scanning and non-contact vision measurement on a single CMM. As the English exhibitors maintain, combining surface finish measurement and dimensional inspection on the CMM presents unrivalled advantages over traditional inspection methods requiring a separate process. Powered by five-axis measurement technology, the automated surface finish inspection of the new instrument is claimed to offer significant time savings, reduced part handling and a greater return on the machine investment.

According to Renishaw, the combination of roughness measurement and a dimensional stability test on the Revo coordinate measuring machine (CMM) represents a considerable advantage over conventional test methods.
