Product Details Supplier Info More products

At Southern Manufacturing 2011, Renishaw will be exhibiting its range of products designed to enhance machine automation, minimise manual intervention and reduce the level of rework and scrap.

Many of the products will reflect the accelerating swing to one-hit machining using five-axis machining centres.

For example there will be a new five-axis probe head for Coordinate Measuring Machines (CMM) which, it is claimed, can give up to a three-fold increase in throughput for touch-trigger measurement.

A new wireless ballbar used for monitoring machine-tool positioning and servo-control now features Bluetooth wireless technology and can produce a representative volumetric measurement of positioning accuracy.

Also on show will be AxiSet Check-Up, a new automated solution that allows users of five-axis and mill-turn machine tools to quickly check the alignment and positioning performance of rotary axes.

New encoders with a resolution of 1nm at speeds of up to 100m/sec will be unveiled.

Southern Manufacturing and Electronics Show

The Southern Manufacturing & Electronics Show is the South’s top industrial business event. The show concentrates virtually every aspect of manufacturing and industrial activity into a single, easily accessible venue. This makes it possible for visitors to experience an extraordinary range of suppliers and technologies in a single visit. Entry and car parking is free, and FIVE is easily accessible by road or public transport.

Southern Manufacturing & Electronics 2011 takes place on February 16th and 17th, at FIVE, Farnborough – right next to Farnborough Airport. Another 750 square meters of exhibition space has been added to the venue for 2011 and the number of companies taking part is expected to exceed 600, making it the largest event ever staged.  

In addition to the huge variety of hardware on display, the show hosts an extremely popular free technical seminar programme. Running over both days and in two theatres, the seminars cover a wide range of topics that are highly relevant to anyone involved in engineering-related business. Sessions will include designing for commercial success, team management, CE marking, the latest developments in additive manufacture, Lean/Six Sigma and many others. Full details can be found on the show website.
