  • 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.

  • Renishaw launches next generation of digital encoder

    VIONiC encoder series Renishaw, the world-leading metrology specialist, is adding to its extensive optical encoder range with the launch of the VIONiC™ series, a new family of ultra-high accuracy, super-compact, all-in-one digital incremental encoders.

  • 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.
