Renishaw has reached another milestone in the application of its technology by deploying products in space for the first time. The European Space Agency’s Sentinel-1A satellite was launched with Renishaw’s new space-encoder technology installed on the advanced Optical Communications Payload (OCP) of the satellite, part of a revolutionary inter-satellite laser communication system.
Renishaw, the global engineering technologies company, will present its range of advanced encoder products at Precisiebeurs 2014 from 12 – 13 November in the NH Conference Centre Koningshof, Veldhoven, the Netherlands. Visitors to stand 164 will see the latest ATOM miniature encoder, an innovative optical linear and rotary (angle) incremental encoder system that uniquely combines miniaturisation with unrivalled metrology performance.
RLS d.o.o., Renishaw’s associate company based in Komenda, Slovenia, has launched a new online shop for its extensive range of magnetic encoders, including the new AksIM off-axis rotary absolute encoder.
Renishaw, the global engineering technologies company, launches a side-exit cable option for the RESOLUTE™ ETR (Extended Temperature Range) absolute optical encoder - which handles lower operating temperatures down to -40 °C (-40 °F) in non-condensing environments.
ASM Pacific Technology Ltd (ASMPT), the world’s largest supplier of wafer assembly and packaging equipment for the semiconductor industry, aims to offer complete factory automation solutions and satisfy customers’ needs through its innovative and cost-effective products.
Flow International Corporation has selected Renishaw HS10 and HS20 laser encoders for use on the company's Composites Machining Center (CMC). These deliver part per million accuracy on X axis motion during week long machining cycles on composite panels up to 40 m long.
Power Plus offers high precision camera positioning for virtual reality technology in the broadcasting industry, with the help of Renishaw’s optical and magnetic encoders to support accuracy and repeatability.
