  • 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.

  • Flora Digital prints with Renishaw's optical encoders

    RGS40-P gold tape scale on Flora Digital linear motor setup (cropped) Flora Digital, a brand name of Shenzhen Runtianzhi Digital Equipment Co Ltd (SRDEC), specialises in wide-format inkjet technology for the commercial print industry. Since their beginning, they have used Renishaw’s RGH41 encoders and RGS40-P gold tape scales on multiple axes to ensure the highest levels of print performance.

  • 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.
