R-EVO Model R

6 and 7 axes articulated measuring arm

Are you ready for the R-EVO-LUTION?


In RPS Metrology the R-EVO arm is now setting the new revolutionary state-of-the-art level for: accuracy, portability, flexibility, for 3D inspection or reverse-engineering.

R-EVO R Model, available in 6 or 7 axes configuration, is a portable measurement arm designed for different applications of the modern industry. It is the PREMIUM accuracy system offering HI-END performance in any environment.

and repeatability

R-EVO can be used stand-alone metrology equipment with touch probe for 3D touch probe inspection, digitizing or reverse-engineering. It meets the standard of the most rigorous standard ISO10360-12:2016.

The high precision encoders together with an innovative assembly system on every joint, including different material like titanium, composite materials, give to the system accuracy, repeatability and reliability.

Design, portability and usability

R-EVO R Model arm, thanks to its extremely reliable mechanical and electronic design, the automatic temperature compensation and the lightweight structure, can be applied on all touch probe application, especially on applications requiring mechanical parts 3D inspection.

SFC (Symmetrical Force Counter-balance) patented system represents the first total ergonomic counter-balance system, giving an effortless experience when using the arm either in a short or prolonged time.

R-EVO arms are a real portable measurement device: equipped with wireless (Bluetooth or Wi-Fi) and Li-ion battery pack for 22 hours working time (tactile) and 12 hours with Laser Scanners.

High performance in any environment

With the standard quick mount (3 ½ inches) they can be used on portable tripods, magnetic base, or any customized mobile support, offers good repeatability even in the worse conditions of dust, humidity and temperature. It features automatic temperature compensation of the arm and of the part, automatically compensating the temperature changes during measurements.

Any type of probe can be easily removed and remounted at will with no need for time-consuming recalibration processes thanks to a bracket based on Renishaw® Autojoint® mounting system. One mount 6 types of probe: Hard probe, touch-trigger probe Renishaw LP2, Optic probe, Laser fork for pipe inspection, laser scanners and structured light scanner.


Why choose R-EVO R

RPS metrology flagship arm R-EVO R is delivering the best performance with touch probing and laser scanning. This is a product going together with the philosophy of RPS since the beginning: best performance with no compromise, to be a real reliable partner for manufacturers and institutes around the globe.
