A Special Message from Renishaw Inc

Renishaw Apply Innovation

Renishaw is a world leading Metrology Company. With our highly experienced team, we are confidently driving our future growth through innovative and patented products and processes, efficient, high-quality manufacturing and the ability to provide local support in our expanding global markets.

MACHINE TOOL PROBE SYSTEMS Sensors and software for computer numerically controlled (CNC) metal cutting machine tools that allow the automation of setting and on-machine measurement operations, leading to more productivity from existing machines and reductions in scrap and rework. These include laser tool setters, contact tool setters, tool breakage detectors, touch probes and high-accuracy inspection probes.

CO-ORDINATE MEASURING MACHINE (CMM) PRODUCTS Sensors, software and control systems for three dimensional CMMs that allow the highly accurate measurement of manufactured components and finished assemblies, including touch-trigger probes, scanning probes, automated probe changers, motorized indexing probe heads and five-axis measurement systems.

PERFORMANCE TESTING PRODUCTS Calibration and testing products to determine the positioning accuracy of a wide range of industrial and scientific machinery to international standards, including a laser interferometer and wireless ballbar.

ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING Additive manufacturing and rapid prototyping systems that allow the rapid manufacture of components as part of a product development process or for full-scale production, including laser melting machines, a range of vacuum, nylon and metal casting machines and a range of materials to support these technologies. Additive manufacturing services are also offered, including design and simulation, and the contract manufacture of metal prototypes and production parts.

GAUGING Innovative flexible gauging technology, based on the comparison of production parts to a reference master part, that can greatly increase throughput and reduce scrap rates at a fraction of the cost of an equivalent custom gauging system.

FIXTURES Modular and custom fixtures used to hold parts securely for dimensional inspection on CMM, vision and gauging systems.

STYLI FOR PROBE SYSTEMS Precision styli that attach to probe sensors for CMMs and machine tools to ensure that accurate measurement data is acquired at the point of contact.

POSITION ENCODERS Position feedback encoders that ensure accurate linear and rotary motion control in a wide range of applications from electronics, motorsports, robotics and semi-conductors to food manufacturing and print production. These include incremental optical encoders, laser interferometer encoders, magnetic encoders and absolute optical encoders.

LARGE SCALE METROLOGY  High-speed laser measurement and surveying systems for use in extreme environments such as marine positioning and mine/quarry scanning.

Use your head! It’s infinitely better. -

New PH20 probe head allows easy access to features at any angle. Unlike conventional touch-trigger measurement methods which rely on speeding up the motion of the CMM's 3 axes to measure quickly, PH20 utilizes head motion technology developed for the multi-award winning REVO® system to minimize the dynamic errors of the CMM at higher measurement speeds.

The infinite possibilities of process control -

Compact high-accuracy 3D measurement touch probe for a wide range of machining centers. The Renishaw RMP600 is a compact, high accuracy touch probe with radio signal transmission, offering all the benefits of automated job set-up, plus the ability to measure complex 3D part geometries on all sizes of machining centers including 5-axis machines. The RMP600 successfully combines the patented Rengage™ strain gauge technology with the unique frequency hopping radio transmission system from the RMP60.

Suite of Blade Measurement, Analysis Tools Offered
Renishaw offers hardware and software for CMMs that are specifically designed for measurement of aerospace blades, including ApexBlade planning software for Revo sweep scanning and DMIS programming, Modus airfoil analysis for the calculation and reporting of blade section profile and airfoil characteristics, and SurfitBlade to aid reverse engineering of the complete airfoil.

Renishaw’s China Headquarters Moves to New Facility
The office will offer a demonstration facility and expanded warehouse and logistics facilities.

Machine Tool Scanning System for Complex 3D Parts
Renishaw says its Sprint machine tool probing system incorporates on-machine analog scanning technology to enable fast, accurate form and profile data capture for prismatic and complex 3D components.

Miniature Optical Encoder Promotes Signal Stability
With a read-head as small as 6.7 × 12.7 × 20.5 mm, Renishaw’s Atom non-contact optical linear and rotary incremental encoder system uses filtering optics with auto gain control (AGC) and auto offset control (AOC) for high signal stability and dirt immunity.

Laser Radar with Vertically "Fanned" Output
The Fanbeam laser radar sensor from Renishaw’s Spatial Measurement division provides repetitive, high-accuracy dynamic positioning (DP) to offshore support vessels (OSV) and other marine structures in harsh environments.

Optical Absolute Encoder Compatible with Drive-Cliq Interface
Renishaw's Resolute single-track, fine-pitch optical absolute encoder is capable of 32-bit resolution at 36,000 rpm in rotary (angle) configuration.
