Equator 500 System Enables Accurate Gaging Of Larger Parts

Originally titled 'System Enables Accurate Gaging Of Larger Parts '

Renishaw’s Equator 500 is a larger gaging system that enables the gaging of larger parts, with a working volume of 20” in diameter and up to 16” in height.

Renishaw’s Equator 500 is designed to gage larger parts with all the benefits of the Equator 300 gaging system. Equator gaging systems have helped to improve yield and increase process capabilities of production lines around the world, by providing high accuracy dimensional inspection data next to turning and machining centers, at the point of manufacture. The larger Equator 500 system now enables the gaging of larger parts, with a working volume of 20” in diameter and up to 16” in height.

Both Equator 300 and 500 systems are accurate between 41ºF and 122ºF at any rate of temperature change, and are capable of scanning speeds in excess of 8” per second. Every system is compatible with simple-to-use Organizer operator software, EZ-IO software for automation, and IPC (intelligent process control) software for updating tool offsets on CNC machine tools.
