  • ATOM™ encoders allow rapid, high-accuracy FPD inspection and repair

    Panel defects TPC Motion (TPC), a well-known Korean manufacturer of motion-control components, has developed a laser aperture stop (optical slit) assembly that employs Renishaw’s miniature ATOM™ linear encoder system on multiple X and Y axes. The ATOM series offers a compact and precise aperture-control solution for the laser repair of FPD assemblies and metal photomasks.

  • REVO-2 and the ATOM™ encoder

    ATOM_REVO-2_275x265 REVO®-2, an improved version of Renishaw's revolutionary multisensor 5-axis measuring head for use on CMMs, incorporates Renishaw’s latest ATOM™ incremental rotary encoder with RCDM rotary (angle) glass scales on both of its axes (yaw and pitch). The ATOM miniature encoder offers leading edge accuracy and speed to enable rapid surface scanning of parts.

  • Revolution in ceramic tile printing signals renewed demand for encoders

    Digitally printed decorative tiles with a single-pass print head (courtesy of Xaar) This article examines the development of inkjet printing, a digitally driven, non-contact, high-definition method of printing patterns or images onto a wide range of substrates, and how the latest optical encoder solutions may help.

  • Optical encoders and LiDAR scanning

    LiDAR scanning in action (no text) Many of the world’s leading LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) manufacturers have developed vehicular LiDAR laser scanning systems, with Renishaw’s high-performance optical encoders onboard, to provide precise and accurate co-ordinate measurement data for the purposes of road infrastructure mapping and surveying.

  • Renishaw debuts all-in-one optical incremental encoder

    VIONiCplus™ with RESM on motor Renishaw’s VIONiCplus™ optical incremental encoder system, launched as part of the VIONiC™ digital all-in-one encoder series, is the first conventional optical encoder to deliver the performance advantages of ultra-fine pitch systems with the additional benefits of better yaw and ride-height tolerance, easier installation, smaller system size, higher speeds, more flexible scale options including longer lengths, better dirt immunity and lower cost.
