  • SOLPOWER rotary tables turn on RESOLUTE™ encoders

    RESOLUTE™ on rotary table SOLPOWER, established in 1995, is a Taiwanese manufacturer of machine tool components such as Direct-Drive (DD) rotary tables, integrated spindle motors and linear motors. Renishaw’s RESOLUTE absolute optical encoders are compatible with a variety of industrial serial protocols and provide high-performance feedback control of the DD mechanism.

  • Introducing the RESOLUTE™ FS encoder

    FANUC robotic arm with RESOLUTE absolute rotary encoders on the rotary axes (Image © FANUC) RESOLUTE FS (Functional Safety) encoder systems offer customers the outstanding metrology performance of the RESOLUTE series but with the added peace-of-mind that comes from compliance with the world’s most stringent functional safety standards. New applications for the RESOLUTE family of encoders now include the latest collaborative robotic and industrial manufacturing technologies.

  • Renishaw’s pioneering RESOLUTE™ encoder family is now compatible with Yaskawa serial communications protocol

    Vacuum chip placer (square) Renishaw's RESOLUTE absolute optical encoder is now compatible with the Yaskawa serial communications protocol in linear and rotary (angle) encoder formats. This allows RESOLUTE to be used with Yaskawa’s drives and controllers such as the Sigma 7 range of servo-products. Yaskawa equipment is regularly used in electronics assembly, Flat Panel Display (FPD) manufacturing, factory automation and general motion control applications.

  • Renishaw launches first functionally safe absolute open optical encoder

    Functional safety RESOLUTE FS (square) Renishaw builds on its existing functionally safe (FS) portfolio by introducing the RESOLUTE FS absolute open-optical encoder for both linear and rotary axis applications. The RESOLUTE™ FS encoder system, part of the RESOLUTE series, offers all the benefits of the standard RESOLUTE variant but with FS certification.

  • 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.
