Renishaw will be presenting a range of advanced metrology products at Precisiebeurs 2013, including the Resolute encoder system, the Aksim magnetic encoder and the RLE laser interferometer system.

Resolute, a single-track absolute optical encoder system, is offered with the BiSS high-speed open serial protocol, which is available with a variety of resolutions for both rotary and linear scales. It is suitable for dynamic axes that require high-acceleration, smooth velocity control and is typically used for applications in the semiconductor industry, including wafer handling.

Renishaw will also exhibit the Aksim absolute magnetic encoder, which features cost-performance, zero-mechanical hysteresis, 18-bit resolution and support for a range of data output formats.

Also on show will be the RLE laser interferometer system, which is specifically designed for high-precision positional feedback applications. Each system consists of an RLU laser unit and one or two RLD10 detector heads, which can be selected from a range of six types.

Precisiebeurs 2013 will take place from 3–4 December in Veldhoven, the Netherlands. Renishaw will be exhibiting from Stand 164 at the NH Conference Centre Koningshof hotel.
