Why is Renishaw CMM Stylus the Best in Class?

Renishaw CMM Stylus

Renishaw makes everything to their exacting standards … just like we do!

They make the largest variety of CMM styli on the market.

Their CMM stylus is a very good value for the money you spend.

Quality + Value is important!

What are the different types of Renishaw Stylus for CMMs?

The genuine Renishaw stylus range comprises several types including:

  • Straight styli - These are the simplest form of CMM stylus, incorporating highly spherical industrial ruby balls and a choice of stem material. Ruby is an extremely hard material and hence stylus wear is minimal.
  • Star styli - These CMM stylus clusters provide you with multiple-tip probing of complex features and bores. Four or five ruby ball systems are mounted rigidly on a stainless steel center. Star styli can be used to inspect a variety of different features. Their use can reduce inspection cycle times by allowing multi-tip probing, minimizing the need to move the probe to extreme points of internal features such as the sides or grooves in a bore.
  • Disc styli - These are used to probe undercuts and grooves within bores, which may be inaccessible to star styli. They are ‘sections’ of highly spherical balls and are available in various diameters and thicknesses. Full rotational adjustment and the ability to add a center stylus are features of the Renishaw range of disc styli that make them particularly flexible and easy to use.
