Products on show

Equator gauge

  • This lightweight, fast and accurate gauge can be used with ‘pushbutton’ simplicity.
  • Equator’s flexible gauging technology is based on the comparison of production parts to a reference master part.
  • Users can increase throughput and reduce scrap rates at a fraction of the cost of an equivalent custom gauging system.
  • New for Advanced Manufacturing is INTUO software, which simplifies and automates the gauging of a variety of parts, removing dependence on the skill of manual gauge users.

AM250 laser melting machine

  • This system utilises a process capable of producing complex fully dense metal components direct from 3D CAD using a high-powered ytterbium laser.
  • Parts are built from a range of metal powders that are fully melted in a tightly controlled atmosphere in a layer thickness ranging from 20–100 microns.

PH20 system for CMMs

  • Five-axis touch-trigger measurement will be demonstrated by Renishaw’s PH20 system for CMMs.
  • PH20 increases touch-trigger CMM throughput by up to three times, using fast, infinite rotary positioning and ‘head touch’ capability for high-speed point capture with minimal CMM movement.
  • SPRINT machine tool probe system
  • SPRINT incorporates a new generation of on-machine scanning technology that will deliver a step-change in the benefits of process control.
  • The system is designed to enable fast and accurate form and profile data capture from both prismatic and complex 3D components.

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.
