Product quality and conformance

When you're investing in a crucial calibration system, you can't take the risk of it not delivering the results you need.

When you purchase a laser or ballbar system from Renishaw, you are buying into a proven track record of assured quality.

Many Renishaw users worldwide can testify to the performance and reliability in use of their Renishaw lasers and ballbars. The performance has also been verified by many national standards laboratories. Systems operate 'out of box' and continue to do so with minimal repairs over the years.

ISO 9001

Renishaw's quality assurance system and procedures are audited for compliance with ISO 9001:2008, the internationally recognised standard for quality management systems. Renishaw's certificate of registration to EN ISO 9001:2008 is issued by BSI Management Systems and carries the UKAS accreditation logo.

This is your assurance that not only does Renishaw operate procedures to the ISO standard, but that the company has been audited and certified by a competent, UKAS accredited, organisation. UKAS accreditation is recognised in many countries worldwide by the relevant national body in that country.
