  • Will quantum dots make for a brighter future?

    Quantum dots (editorial) The commercialisation of quantum dot products signifies a revolution in the FPD industry, but how do state-of-the-art encoder solutions apply? This article explores the future of LED lighting and display technology and asks where we go from here.

  • SYMÉTRIE hexapods choose Renishaw’s advanced RESOLUTE™ absolute encoders

    IA DEA testing set-up with SYMETRIE's hexapod Renishaw’s RESOLUTE series of absolute encoders now supports SYMÉTRIE’s Ground Integration and Calibration Support (GICS) and Interferometry Assembly Detection Electronics Assembly (IA DEA) hexapods, designed for two types of advanced component validation testing in the manufacture of the Meteosat Third Generation (MTG) weather satellites, due for launch from 2019.

  • Renishaw’s unique ATOM™ encoder is key to enhanced metrology performance

    Website banner (foreground): ATOM™ with RCDM plus shadow Renishaw, the global engineering company, has launched REVO-2, a new improved version of the revolutionary multi-sensor 5-axis measuring head for use on Co-ordinate Measuring Machines (CMMs). REVO-2 incorporates Renishaw’s latest ATOM miniature incremental rotary encoder with RCDM rotary (angle) scales on both of its axes (yaw & pitch) and is the first product to have the ATOM encoder designed-in at the concept stage.

  • Renishaw reels-out new RTLA scale length options to 21 metres

    RESOLUTE™ with FASTRACK™ RTLA and RTLA-S icon Renishaw has more than doubled the maximum length of its RTLA linear stainless steel ribbon scale. It is now available in lengths up to 21 metres and can be used with or without the FASTRACK™ scale carrier system. The longer RTLA scales, used with Renishaw’s RESOLUTE™ absolute optical encoders, are now suitable for applications with very long axes. These include large aerospace trimming and drilling systems, wing structure drilling systems, milling machines for

  • RLS launches a 20 bit absolute magnetic ring encoder

    AksIM™ true-absolute magnetic rotary encoder Renishaw’s associate company RLS announces the launch of the new AksIM™ true-absolute magnetic rotary encoder for embedded OEM motion control applications.
