5-Axis Favorites


precision I’ve had the pleasure of working with Jim Hillman at PrecisionMN, on several REVO projects for his customers over the last several months. Jim and I share a strong interest in the REVO 5-axis capabilities, and the projects he has brought to our team really define why the REVO is such a capable inspection tool.

For example: during one offline programming demo, we were able to cut down cycle time from nearly 1hr per part on a traditional CMM, to around 10 minutes on the REVO. This kind of cycle time improvement is immense when considering the purchase of a CMM and projects like these are always a fun challenge for our team. It’s always rewarding to hear the excitement (and disbelief!) regarding the power of the REVO system from customers and future customer alike.  

For anyone that doesn’t know, PrecisionMN is one of our sales rep partners here in North America. Here’s an email interview with him for our Wenzel Partner Spotlight Blog.
