Following its acquisition of R and R Sales in 2013, Renishaw has developed a range of modular fixturing designed specifically for co-ordinate measuring machines (CMMs), vision systems and Equator gauging systems.

The new range features a choice of baseplates and components available in M4, M6 and M8 thread sizes and can be utilised for measurement applications across industries including aerospace, automotive and medical.

The fixtures can be purchased in preconfigured kits or individually. Custom solutions can also be designed and manufactured for specialised tasks.

The range of fixtures will be available in the UK and Germany from mid-July 2013.

Products in detail

CMM fixtures

  • These include a range of baseplates made from cast aluminium and coated with NiTuff hard-coat anodise to resist wear.
  • There are two types of pre-configured kits available depending on the part being fixtured: clamping or magnetic and clamping.

Vision fixtures

  • Two options are available dependent on the size of vision machine: the quick load corner (QLC) kit includes an acrylic baseplate (either with multi-hole or multi-window design) and a QLC frame that is designed to fit the specific vision machine; and the interchangeable vision fixture (IVF) is recommended for larger machines and is customised for specific fixturing tasks.
  • A comprehensive set of components is included with the QLC kit.
  • An IVF kit can include individual or multiple, standard or customised acrylic baseplates.

Equator fixtures

  • These use kinematic baseplates specifically designed for quick loading and unloading from the gauging machine.
  • The baseplates are available with M4 and M6 threaded holes, are made from cast aluminium and are coated with NiTuff hard-coat anodise to resist wear.

Renishaw

A world leader in engineering technologies, Renishaw’s core skills in measurement and precision machining serve sectors as diverse as dimensional metrology, spectroscopy, machine calibration, motion control, dentistry and surgical robotics.

Sensors for co-ordinate measuring machines (CMMs) are an industry standard, from basic touch-trigger probes through to automated stylus and probe changers, motorised indexing probe heads, and revolutionary five-axis measurement systems.

Machine probes for CNC machine tools allow automated tool setting, workpiece set-up, in-cycle gauging and part inspection. Products include laser tool setters, contact tool setters, tool breakage detectors, touch probes and high accuracy inspection probes.

For motion control, Renishaw supplies laser encoders, optical linear encoders, optical angle encoders, optical rotary encoders, magnetic rotary encoders, magnetic chip encoders and magnetic linear encoders.

To analyse the static and dynamic performance of position-critical motion systems, Renishaw’s laser interferometer and environmental compensation system offers a linear measurement accuracy of 0.5 ppm, readings of up to 50 kHz and a linear measurement speed of up to 4 m/s, with a linear resolution of 1nm.

Renishaw’s Raman spectroscopy products exploit the Raman effect to identify and characterise the chemistry and structure of materials. A diverse range of analytical applications include pharmaceutical, forensic science, nanotechnology, biomedical and semiconductors.
