Renishaw has promoted these products / services:
The XM-60 is a laser measurement system capable of measuring errors in six degrees of freedom along a linear axis, simultaneously from a single set-up.
The Equator is an alternative to traditional dedicated gauging, filling a gap in the market never before addressed. The patented low-cost design, unique in construction and method of operation, is capable of high-speed comparative gauging for inspection of high-volume manufactured parts. Available in two sizes the Equator 300 and 500.
The QC20-W ballbar is an all-new design featuring a Renishaw-developed linear sensor and Bluetooth® wireless technology, providing greater ease of use and durability, and allowing for testing in "closed door" manufacturing, where access for wiring can raise safety and procedural issues. The new design also allows testing in 3 orthogonal planes through a single reference point.
Cableless tool setting and inspection probing for machine tools from Renishaw.
Renishaw's new twin probe optical signal transmission system uses a single optical receiver for tool setting probe and spindle-mounted touch probe installations, offering fast integration and a cable-free machine environment.
The size of the XL-80 laser and XC-80 compensator means that a complete linear system can fit into a 'wheelie-case' and weighs only 12 kg. Add the tripod, in its own fabric case and you have a truly portable solution to machine metrology. Both the laser and compensator connect to your PC via USB so there is no separate interface required and no complicated set-up to worry about.
Renishaw's PH20 co-ordinate measuring machine
Renishaw's PH20 features unique 'head touches' which allow measurement points to be taken by moving only the head rather than the CMM structure. Using only the rapid rotary motion of the head, points can be taken faster, and with improved accuracy and repeatability.
Time is money. Time spent manually setting work piece positions and inspecting finished product is better invested in machining. Renishaw probing systems eliminate costly machine down-time and the scrapping of components associated with manual setting and inspection.
