DIY Training
The Additive Manufacturing Division at Renishaw Inc. is picking up the training gauntlet with an internal program called the Applications Academy.

How to Choose and Use Styli
The variety of probe applications on machine tools, CMMs, comparative gages and portable arms makes correct selection of styli usage essential for efficient, reliable and accurate measurement. Here are some key points that can be helpful in choosing the best measurement solution.

Renishaw Atom

Miniature Optical Encoder Promotes Signal Stability
With a read-head as small as 6.7 × 12.7 × 20.5 mm, Renishaw’s Atom non-contact optical linear and rotary incremental encoder system uses filtering optics with auto gain control (AGC) and auto offset control (AOC) for high signal stability and dirt immunity.

Machine Tool Scanning System
Designed to provide process control opportunities for high-value CNC machine tools, this system incorporates a new generation of on-machine analog scanning technology to allow fast and accurate form and profile data capture from both prismatic and complex 3D components.

Renishaw Equator comparative gaging system Organizer process monitoring software

Monitoring Software for Comparative Gaging System
Renishaw’s Equator comparative gaging system includes its new Organizer process monitoring software.

Renishaw's Chairman Receives Business Excellence Award
Sir David McMurtry, Renishaw's chairman and chief executive, received The Daily Telegraph Award for a Decade of Excellence in Business at the 2013 UK National Business Awards, held on November 12.

Programmable Gages Help Create Automation Cell
Conroe Machine (Conroe, Texas) is doing what most machine shops only dream of: hard turning a family of parts around the clock in an unmanned cell that operates a “self-controlled” process.

Renishaw SFP1 probe

Probe Enables Surface-Finish Measurement on CMMs
Renishaw’s SFP1 probe option for the Revo five-axis measurement system integrates surface-finish inspection within coordinate measurement routines.

MACHINE TOOL PROBE SYSTEMS Sensors and software for computer numerically controlled (CNC) metal cutting machine tools that allow the automation of setting and on-machine measurement operations, leading to more productivity from existing machines and reductions in scrap and rework. These include laser tool setters, contact tool setters, tool breakage detectors, touch probes and high-accuracy inspection probes.

CO-ORDINATE MEASURING MACHINE (CMM) PRODUCTS Sensors, software and control systems for three dimensional CMMs that allow the highly accurate measurement of manufactured components and finished assemblies, including touch-trigger probes, scanning probes, automated probe changers, motorized indexing probe heads and five-axis measurement systems.

PERFORMANCE TESTING PRODUCTS Calibration and testing products to determine the positioning accuracy of a wide range of industrial and scientific machinery to international standards, including a laser interferometer and wireless ballbar.

ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING Additive manufacturing and rapid prototyping systems that allow the rapid manufacture of components as part of a product development process or for full-scale production, including laser melting machines, a range of vacuum, nylon and metal casting machines and a range of materials to support these technologies. Additive manufacturing services are also offered, including design and simulation, and the contract manufacture of metal prototypes and production parts.

GAUGING Innovative flexible gauging technology, based on the comparison of production parts to a reference master part, that can greatly increase throughput and reduce scrap rates at a fraction of the cost of an equivalent custom gauging system.
