Renishaw's Equator flexible gage

Flexible Gage Software Integrates with CNC Machine Tools
EMO 2017: Renishaw will exhibit its software for the Equator flexible gauge, which allows users to fully integrate the system with CNC machine tools, its contact scanning system for CNC machine tools, its on-machine and mobile apps which are designed to simplify the use of machine tool probing, an enhanced non-contact tool setter for machining centers, a multi-probe optical interface system, a surface finish probe for coordinate measuring machines, and software that enhances the functionality of Renishaw’s XM-60 multi-axis calibration system.

Scanning for Speedier Setups
Renishaw introduces new on-machine, touch-probe scanning technology to enable faster workpiece setup and inspection cycles.

Renishaw Partners with Technical College in South Carolina
The partnership is intended to aid in developing engineers and machine operators in the region’s aerospace, power generation and automotive industries.

Renishaw Equator IPC Software

Gage Software Connects to CNC, Automates Tool Offset Updates
The Renishaw Equator flexible gage is now offered with intelligent process control (IPC) software, providing the functionality to fully automate tool offset updates in CNC manufacturing processes.

Three Design Strategies for Additive Manufacturing
It’s possible to reproduce existing designs via metal additive manufacturing. But the greatest benefits come from designing intentionally with additive in mind.

Additively manufactured electronic actuator

Reducing the Weight of a Robot Actuator
A metal additive manufacturing process reduced the weight of a hydraulic actuator, leading to a better performing component.

Can Additive Manufacturing Increase Milling Feed Rates?
With PCD tooling, yes it can. The diamond cutting edges demand a large number of flutes to realize their full effectiveness. Traditional methods for making cutter bodies limit the number of flutes, but 3D printing is delivering tools with higher flute density and other enhancements as well.
