For over 30 years, Renishaw, a leading metrology company, has supplied precision measurement products to manufacturers worldwide, all designed to increase productivity and improve product quality. Renishaw provides these products to companies in an ever-increasing variety of applications including aerospace, automotive, and precision manufacture. The introduction of Renscan5™, a new enabling technology, allows highly accurate, ultra high-speed, five-axis scanning measurement on CMMs; at speeds of up to 500 mm/second, and virtually eliminates the measurement errors normally associated with existing three-axis scanning systems. REVO™, the first in a family of revolutionary measuring head and probe systems will redefine the industry standard for scanning systems. Renishaw's non-contact tool-setters enable fast, repeatable measurement of tool dimensions and forms, and monitoring of tool condition. Our complete line of measuring probes for CNC machine tools allow for part set-up and inspection on both small and large machines. Our line of encoders are increasingly being integrated into industries such as electronics, medical manufacturing, and semi-conductors. Further developments include calibration systems for machine performance control, 3D scanning systems for dental and reverse engineering applications, and Raman microscopes for material spectral analysis.

Four Steps to Better Equipment Effectiveness
Lean manufacturing typically gets the spotlight as the path to profit, but before you can have a lean operation, you need to get your processes under control.
Radio Transmission Touch Probes
The company’s radio transmission probes combine compact size with frequency-hopping spread spectrum (FHSS) radio transmission to bring the advantages of automated job setup and in-process measurement to a range of machine tools and applications.
The Process Control Imperative
Tough economic times force manufacturers to look for ways to improve efficiency while reducing costs.
Lathe Inspection Touch Probes
Renishaw’s RLP40 and OLP40 lathe inspection probes offer a choice of signal transmission technologies, radio or optical, to make part setup and inspection on turning centers accurate, simple and reliable.
Wireless Ballbar with Volumetric Testing Capability
The QC20-W ballbar features a linear sensor and Bluetooth wireless technology.
Broken Tool Detection In Machining And Turning Centers
Renishaw's TRS2 broken tool detection system uses a "one-box," single-head design to recognize tool reflections, bringing precise, in-cycle laser monitoring to machining centers and other machine tools.
Radio Touch Probe--Renishaw
The Renishaw RMP600 touch probe combines the highest accuracy strain-gage sensing and frequency-hopping spread-spectrum radio transmission. The design allows part checking precision on five-axis machining, contours, deep cavities, undercuts, and more where obstacles or part features can block transmission by optical line-of-sight probes.
Laser Monitors Medical Parts Processing
The second-generation TRS2 broken tool detection system from Renishaw is said to save space and install easily on smaller machine tools used in medical part machining. The system’s “one-box” design combines the laser source and detection electronics in a single, compact unit that is 3. 27" × 1.
Machine Tool Probe Operates In Any Spindle Orientation
Featuring high-speed operation in single-touch or double-touch probing routines, the OMP60 machine tool probe’s compact size, optical transmission capability and battery power allow easy machine tool installation, according to manufacturer Renishaw. With miniaturized electronics, the 76-mm-long measuring unit has a diameter of 63 mm. The 360-degree, infrared optical transmission system has a range of 6 m and allows probe operation in any spindle orientation.
High-Speed, Five-Axis Scanning
Renscan5 high-speed, five-axis part scanning uses technologies that exceed coordinate measuring machine (CMM) scanning speeds by 10 to 20 times more. The system integrates five-axis machine control with a high-speed, infinite-positioning Revo measuring head, a laser-corrected probe and a UCC2 universal CMM controller. The machine allows scanning speeds of as much as 500 mm/sec.
Non-Contact Laser Toolsetters
Renishaw has added to the NC4 range of non-contact laser toolsetters with a series of compact fixed systems. The F95, F115 and F230 NC4 models provide tool ID and broken tool detection in a small, fast-setup package. Measuring gaps of 23 mm, 55 mm and 170 mm respectively enable best fit to machine requirements and space availability.
Channel-Hopping Radio Probe
The RMP60 machine tool probe features frequency-hopping spread spectrum (FHSS) radio transmission. The FHSS technology is said to enhance the robustness and versatility of radio probing for five-axis, large part and deep part machining operations where obstacles or part features can block transmission by optical line-of-sight probes. The company says the system hops transmission between multiple discrete 1 MHz channels to overcome any interference.
