Renishaw is to highlight technologies including the Equator gauge, the AM250 laser melting system, the PH20 five-axis touch-trigger system for co-ordinate measuring machines and the XR20-W rotary-axis calibration system at Southern Manufacturing 2013.

The exhibition is scheduled to be held on on 13–14 February at FIVE in Farnborough.

Products in detail

Equator gauge

  • Rapidly collects thousands of data points, enabling the comparative measurement of high-volume manufactured parts
  • Can switch between parts in seconds
  • Is particularly suitable for flexible manufacturing processes or accepting parts from multiple machines

AM250 laser melting system

  • Uses additive manufacturing process that is capable of producing fully dense metal parts direct from 3D CAD using a high-power fibre laser
  • Builds parts from a range of fine metal powders that are fully melted in a tightly controlled atmosphere, in layer thicknesses ranging from 2–100 microns

PH20 five-axis touch-trigger system

  • Increases touch-trigger probing throughput by up to three times using fast, infinite, rotary positioning and ‘head touch’ capability for high-speed point capture

XR20-W rotary-axis calibration system

  • Works with the XL-80 laser interferometer system to allow the measurement of rotary-axis positional accuracy to within one arc-second
  • Features wireless operation and modular mounting systems to ensure suitability for a range of machines

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.

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.
