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.

Raising the Bar with Ballbar Testing
Few manufacturing companies rely on ballbar testing to maintain machine tool accuracy as thoroughly as Silfex. Now, advanced training and a move to a Renishaw QC20-W wireless system have enabled the company to take the benefits of ballbar testing to a higher level.

Data Analysis Software Compatible with Laser Calibration Systems
Renishaw’s XCal-View software for laser calibration data analysis is the first part of a planned software suite covering data capture, analysis and error compensation.

Discover More—And I Did
The time I spent at the Discover More with Mazak Midwest event in Schaumburg, Ill. was designed to help attendees discover new tools and techniques for staying ahead of the manufacturing curve. Here are four good ideas that caught my attention.

Absolute Magnetic Ring Encoder Enables Embedded Applications
Available from Renishaw, RLS’s AksIM true-absolute magnetic rotary encoder is designed for embedded OEM motion-control applications.

3D-Printed Titanium Bike Frame Manufactured for Empire Cycles
An additive manufacturing technology supplier collaborates with a British bicycle company to create what the two companies say is the world’s first 3D-printed metal bike frame.

Monitoring Software for Comparative Gaging System
Renishaw’s Equator comparative gaging system includes its new Organizer process monitoring software.

Practicality & Possibility
Some of the technologies and applications on display at Euromold 2013 illustrated the possibilities for using additive manufacturing to manufacture functional parts.

Polygonica Solid Modeling Toolkit Handles Large 3D Models
The newest release of MachineWorks’ Polygonica solid modeling toolkit focuses on handling very large models, and supporting color and application data defined on polygonal meshes.

Renishaw to Host Additive Manufacturing Focus Day
An event on November 28 will focus on additive manufacturing processes and technologies.

Data Analysis Software for Laser Calibration
Renishaw’s XCal-View analysis software package is designed for use with the data captured by its LaserXL, RotaryXL and Laser10 laser calibration systems.

Rotary-Axis Calibrator Features Bluetooth Technology
Renishaw's XR20-W wireless rotary axis calibrator is designed for use with the company’s XL-80 and ML10 laser measurement systems, together offering automatic measurement of rotary-axis positioning performance with traceable ±1 arcsecond accuracy.

Landspeed Record with Laser Melting
The very first object to break the landspeed barrier of 1,000 mph is likely to be a part produced through additive manufacturing.

Probe System Enables Multiple Tool Setting
Renishaw’s RMI-Q radio transmission interface enables as many as four separate tool-setting or spindle probes with radio transmission to be operated on the same machine.

Probe Enables Surface-Finish Measurement on CMMs
Renishaw’s SFP1 probe option for the Revo five-axis measurement system integrates surface-finish inspection within coordinate measurement routines.

Contact Scanning System Facilitates Automated Process Control
Renishaw’s Sprint high speed analogue contact scanning system for CNC machine tools is designed to facilitate automated process control without the need for operator intervention.

Obstacles to the Adoption of Additive Manufacturing
Renishaw was a user of additive manufacturing before it became an OEM supplying additive manufacturing technology—specifically, laser melting systems for producing metal parts. For a metrology company to diversify into additive manufacturing machinery in this way indicates the long-term promise the company sees for this method of manufacturing.

Renishaw Acquires Additive Manufacturer
Renishaw has purchased the business assets of LBC Laser Bearbeitungs Center GmbH of Kornwestheim, Germany.

Measurement Technology Transcends Limitations
One metrology equipment supplier says its laser systems address common difficulties with noncontact measurement, while another touts a product that enables measuring surface finish on CMMs.

Renishaw Acquires Additive Manufacturer
A new company will focus on additive design, simulation and contract manufacturing.

Probe Enables Finish Measurement on CMMs
Aerospace and automotive manufacturers no longer have to move parts for surface finish measurement on hand-held devices or dedicated machinery.
