Renishaw is launching FixtureBuilder at Control 2016 taking place in Stuttgart, Germany from 26 to 29 April.

FixtureBuilder is a 3D-modelling software package designed to allow the off-line creation and documentation of fixturing set-ups.

FixtureBuilder offers a wide range of customer benefits, derived from Renishaw’s outstanding understanding of metrology best practice and part inspection.

FixtureBuilder offers unparalleled ease of use thanks to:

• Clear and well-organised component libraries;
• Intelligent ‘Drag and drop’ functionality;
• Quick manipulation of parts;
• And easy-to-use constraint mechanism.

User experience is further enhanced by the software’s full CAD compatibility and the availability of custom libraries.

The ‘Build it’ function is one of the key benefits available to all FixtureBuilder users. It automates the production of work instructions and Bill of Materials for every fixture set-up, to help ensure compliance with quality standards and assist with product ordering.

The software is availble to all existing and future Renishaw customers to complement and further improve the productivity of their Renishaw fixtures and other inspection euipment. It is available for purchase through the Renishaw distribution network as well as the Renishaw Web shop. A free seven-day demo is also available upon request.

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.
