Machine Tool Scanning System

Designed to provide process control opportunities for high-value CNC machine tools, this system incorporates a new generation of on-machine analog scanning technology to allow fast and accurate form and profile data capture from both prismatic and c...


Calibrating the Rotary Axis

Renishaw's wireless XR20-W and new off-axis rotary software work with laser interferometers to test the accuracy of lathes, multi-axis machine tools, mill-turn machines, trunnion tables and spindles.


Lasers Go Beyond Making Their Mark

Today the laser plays a vital role in many areas, including research, communication, industry, medicine, environmental care and, of course, manufacturing.


Is the Time Right for a Shopfloor CMM?

You’ve integrated more effective, efficient machining equipment to improve throughput. Perhaps now it’s time to take a closer look at how part inspection impacts your overall process.


Value-Added Inspection

Few in a production turning environment would argue the fact that, generally speaking, the need for better accuracies has steadily risen right along side increased workpiece complexity. But verifying these accuracies is still often a tough pill to s...


Small Parts Have Big Impact

Advanced micromachining capabilities have had a monumental effect on the way parts are produced. But as parts continue to get smaller, complexities increase, as do corresponding tolerance requirements.


Laser Highlights

The number of different laser applications is surprising, yet it continues to grow. Here's a look at a few.


Sliced Bread—And The Limits Of Air Gaging

"Air gaging is the greatest thing since sliced bread," a friend once said. And he was right—air gaging is good.


Surface Texture From Ra to Rz

The irregularity of a machined surface is the result of the machining process, including the choice of tool; feed and speed of the tool; machine geometry; and environmental conditions. This irregularity consists of high and low spots machined into ...


DFGT - Double Flank Gear Testing

Functional gear testing, also known as total radial composite deviation, is a method of looking at the total effect of gear errors. This test method simulates the conditions under which a set of gears is likely to operate as a result of the gears m...
