Tally Up Your Savings with AIMS Metrology’s New Virtual Calculator
DAYTON, Ohio—(February 8, 2018) Coordinate measuring machine OEM AIMS Metrology has introduced a virtual calculator designed to help manufacturers find out in “real time” just how much money they will save with a Renishaw REVO 2 5-axis scanning probe. The Dayton, Ohio company designed its flagship CMM, the Revolution LM, around the REVO 2 which is equipped with an RVP vision probe. The RVP provides non-contact vision measurements on a 5-axis platform with infinite positioning.
The calculator is easy and quick to use. In the time it takes to plug in basic data—current inspection method, average number of inspections per hour and average inspection time [in minutes]—manufacturers can test their production parameters against the REVO-equipped LM. The screen can be refreshed for multiple uses with different data combinations.
As an example, a company that performs 60 inspections an hour and spends 1 minute per inspection without using a CMM could net an annual savings of $99,330 by switching to the REVO 2. To take the example a step further, a company that uses a manual CMM to perform 20 inspections an hour at 5 minutes per inspection, would save $155,550 with REVO 2.
Manufacturers that perform inspections with automated CMMs can also expect a savings with the REVO 2. For companies that use an automated CMM equipped with a conventional probe to perform 60 inspections per hour at one minute per inspection, a switch to REVO 2 captures a savings of $66,670.
The REVO 2 is designed to maximize CMM throughput while maintaining high system accuracy and uses synchronized motion as well as Renscan5 measurement technology to minimize the dynamic effects of CMM motion at ultra-high measurement speeds. The REVO 2 delivers high-performance scanning, non-contact inspection and surface finish analysis making the LM a multi-solution inspection tool.

AIMS was founded in 2009 to equip the industry with the tools to perform accurate, flexible three-dimensional inspection for in-process and post process parts. In 2015 the Dayton, Ohio-
based OEM launched its line of Revolution LM and HB series coordinate measuring machines designed and engineered to introduce and bring Renishaw 5-axis measurement technology to the shop floor and the laboratory. AIMS’ Revolution line of CMMs are exclusively supported by Renishaw technology through probe heads, touch probes, scanning probes, incremental encoder scale systems, change racks, styli, controls, and Modus software. Faster measuring speeds, enhanced accuracy, higher throughput and lower cost of ownership make the Revolution series products especially suited for the quality control process demands of efficiency-driven manufacturers and the growing number of smart factories and automated operations. In addition to matching customer requirements with the right turnkey CMM system, AIMS provides installation, service/support and training. Machine retrofits and refurbished equipment are also available.
