Renishaw - OMP40-2 Probe - Installation

Step 1

Install the stylus [1] into the probe body.

Use the stylus installation tool [2] to tighten the stylus [1] into the probe body [3].

Turn the tool until the stylus is snug.

Use a coin or flat-head screwdriver to remove the battery compartment cover [3].

note: Do not touch the stylus after installing the batteries. Touching the stylus can change the settings.

Install batteries [4] into the battery compartment.

Install the battery compartment and tighten the cover.

Step 2

If the probe is not yet installed to the toolholder, follow the below steps, otherwise skip to Step 3:

Use the hex wrench [2] supplied with the probe.

Loosen the (6) set screws in the probe toolholder [1].

Insert the probe body [3] into the toolholder [1].

Use the hex wrench [2] to snug the (6) set screws.

Step 3

Insert the OMP40-2 probe into the spindle.

Place an indicator [3] onto the center of the stylus ruby.

Manually turn the spindle to measure the radial runout, not to exceed 0.0002" (5┬Ám) total indicated runout.

Use the hex wrench [1] to adjust the (4) adjustment set screws and set the runout. The (2) top set screws hold the probe body into place.

Make sure all (6) set screws are snug into the probe when finished setting the runout.

Step 4

Calibrate the probe.

For NGC machines refer to WIPS Complete Probe Calibration.

For Classic Control machines refer to Classic Control - Probe Calibration (WIPS).

Refer to WIPS Troubleshooting Guide for more information on settings, probe light sequence information, and causes of symptoms.

Renishaw - OTS Probe - Installation

Step 1

Place the retainer strap [1] over the shaft mount on the probe body [3].

Install the shaft [2] into the shaft mount. Snug the shaft with the open-end wrench.

Place the stylus [4] into the stylus mount [5]. Snug the set screws with the screwdriver.

Bend the retainer strap 90 degrees as shown [7].

Place the stylus assembly onto the probe shaft. Snug the set screws with the screwdriver.

Attach the retainer strap to the bottom of the stylus assembly using included screw [6].

Step 2

Install the batteries:

note: Do not touch the stylus when you install the batteries. This can change the settings.

Remove the battery cover [1].

On new probes, make sure to remove the plastic shield between the batteries [2] and the contacts.

Step 3

Install the tool probe to the table:

Loosen the (6) set screws [1] around the probe body.

Remove the base [2] from the probe body.

Use a 3/8" - 16 x 1 socket head cap screw [3] to anchor the base to the machine table.

Place the probe body on the base.

Snug the (4) base mount set screws [4].

Snug the (2) base rotation set screws [5].

Step 4

Indicate and adjust the stylus flatness:

Adjust the (2) screws [1] at the probe base to align the stylus side-to-side not to exceed +/- 0.0001" (0.003 mm).

Adjust the (2) screws [2] on the probe body to align the stylus front-to-back not to exceed +/- 0.0001" (0.003 mm).

Step 5

Align the probe with the OMI receiver:

Loosen the set screw [3] beneath the stylus.

Turn the probe body so that the data transmission window [2] points at the OMI receiver [1].

Snug the set screw.

Step 6

Set the direction of the OTS tool probe:

Macro variable 592 changes the radius offset direction. Change macro variable 592 to make sure the tool does not hit the probe body when it moves off center to compensate for the tool radius.

When you use the WIPS calibration pages to calibrate the probe, this will automatically sets macro variable 592 to 2.

When you use VQC calibration pages to calibrate the probe, you can select 2 or -2 for macro variable 592.

If the probe is installed in a different direction, you must change macro variable 592. This lets the tool move away from the probe during the rotating tool length cycle.

Set macro variable 592 to agree with the direction of the probe. These are the correct values:

#592 = 1.0, diameter along the X Axis setting: rotating length cutter radius offset setting in the Y- direction.

#592 = -1.0, diameter along the X Axis setting: rotation length cutter radius offset setting in the Y+ direction.

#592 = 2.0, diameter along the Y Axis setting: rotating length cutter radius offset setting in the X- direction.

#592 = -2.0, diameter along the Y Axis setting: rotation length cutter radius offset setting in the X+ direction.
