To help Irish manufacturers benefit from faster scanning times when using coordinate measuring machines (CMM), industrial metrology supplier The Sempre Group recently became an approved supplier for LK Metrology and Renishaw in Ireland. As Sempre continues to develop its partnership with the two companies, it now offers demonstrations of Renishaw’s REVO® multi-sensor 5-axis measurement system at its Dublin site.
Currently, most CMM services in Ireland are being delivered from outside the country, and many manufacturers are unaware of how scanning probes and similar technology could optimise scanning times and improve machine throughput. This means that many risk not getting the most out of their CMMs in terms of speed, delivery and quality.
Following its collaboration with UK-based LK Metrology, The Sempre Group now supplies the company’s large-scale CMM portfolio while offering dedicated, local support from its Dublin office. With Sempre having proven success in the benchtop CMM market, the partnership means it now supplies LK Metrology’s full range of large-scale CMMs. Therefore, Sempre can provide customers with larger machines capable of measuring components for industries like aerospace.
The Renishaw REVO head uses synchronised motion and 5-axis measurement technology to minimise the dynamic effects of CMM motion at ultra-high measurement speeds. The probe offers flexibility, allowing operators to integrate and change a stylus with ease. Sempre is now demoing the REVO system at its Dublin site, so manufacturers can discover how it can improve their measurement process.
“Many manufacturers could be getting so much more out of their CMMs by cutting lead times, reducing costs and improving quality. However, because there is a limited CMM supply base in Ireland, many customers are unaware of alternative solutions,” explained Jason McGlynn, commercial manager at The Sempre Group. “Now that we’re an approved supplier for both LK Metrology and Renishaw, we can start having these conversations with manufacturers and show them what else is out there, so they can gain a competitive advantage.
“We’re particularly excited about the REVO system because it really is the cutting edge of scanning probe technology and, no matter how old or unique the CMM, manufacturers can retrofit it with ease. We’ve already started offering demonstrations here in Balbriggan, and our team can also support with integration.”
Since Sempre opened its Ireland office in 2021, it has been a hub for where the company can offer local support and contract measurement services for customers. Therefore, manufacturers can experience technology like REVO first-hand while benefitting from the team’s extensive experience.
