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.
