RPI launching new precision measuring devices

Posted 7 March 2018 · Add Comment

Specialist developer and manufacturer of precision positioning devices for high accuracy rotary and angular inspection systems, RPI UK, is launching GeoSpin and QuadMatic rotary tables at Control (Stuttgart) on the 24th of April 2018.



GeoSpin (above) has been specifically developed for the measurement and assembly of smaller engines in the aerospace industry, such as short-haul and business jets. The product has been developed in response to huge demand from the industry.

GeoSpin significantly increases the reliability of measurement data, which enables rotor stacking software to accurately manipulate component parts, resulting in precisely aligned rotor assemblies. GeoSpin has been independently verified and proven to offer operational improvements over traditional measurement methods.

QuadMatic (above) delivers greater accuracy and precision to the CMM industry. Held in granite, it simplifies the measurement of symmetrical or prismatic components including scanning applications by simplifying measuring procedures, increasing CMMs’ application range and effective measuring volume which in turn increases the flexibility, productivity and efficiency of the CMM.

As well as these newly developed products, RPI will also be demonstrating its LabStandard. This enables operation in both horizontal and vertical axis applications and combines a preloaded axial and radial rolling bearing to provide high rigidity in both planes ideal for heavy off centred loads. LabStandard is essential for anyone working in metrology, fine machining or precision testing.

Jim Palmer, RPI’s sales manager, said: “QuadMatic and GeoSpin are delivering a whole new world of accuracy and precision measurement. They can be used in manufacturing and quality control, and can’t be beaten for flexibility and performance over a wide range of calibration and inspection applications. Come to stand 7123 at Control and see just how good they are.”

RPI operate in any market requiring high load, rotational accuracy and precision, specifically: aerospace, gas turbines, CMM, calibration and standards labs, universities, optics, scientific research, navigation & guidance systems, encoders, hirth couplings and precision gears.

UK-based RPI has an extensive global reach with a worldwide network of distributors including North America, Europe and South East Asia.
