The RS is a good-value, mechanical bearing, Horizontal Arm CMM, side mounted onto an inherently stable base plate. This system is often used for production related measurement of typical components.
The R-Series generally does not need a foundation, making it easily installed into an existing room. This machine is used for production related measurement of typical components such as individual vehicle components, assemblies, plastic parts and other large components. R-Series machines are often installed as duplex or double arm, called RSD (where the arms oppose each other) to increase the measurement volume.
The R-Series can be equipped with the latest Renishaw probe systems including Renishaw PHS infinite positioning head, 3-axis scanning or touch trigger probe systems and the Wenzel optical sensors, SHAPETRACER and WM | LS 70. These machines are available in 2 accuracy levels—standard and premium depending on accuracy requirements.
