Blue laser technology: setting the standard in on-machine tool measurement
Global engineering technologies company, Renishaw, will launch its latest non-contact tool setting solution at EMO Hannover 2019. The new NC4+ Blue system will be one of many smart factory process control solutions demonstrated by Renishaw, which are proven to help machine shops across many industries transform their production capabilities.
Renishaw extends family of robust and reliable tool setting solutions for turning and multi-task machining applications
Global engineering technologies company, Renishaw, will launch the new APCS-45 tool setting probe at EMO Hannover 2019. Complementing the APCA-45 launched earlier this year, the new APCS-45 features an alternative protective stylus cover mechanism, enabling fitment on machines with limited control options.
Renishaw and Hartford combine to deliver intelligent, ‘smart factory’ solutions
In the face of global skills shortages and rapidly emerging Industry 4.0 trends, Taiwanese CNC machine manufacturer Hartford undertook to develop an innovative, easier-to-use human machine interface (HMI) for its CNC machines. At the same time the company strived to ensure process measurement and inspection at its CNC machine manufacturing operations could keep pace with ever-improving product quality goals.
Supreme speed with SupaScan QuickPoint cycles
Exclusive to SupaScan – Renishaw’s ultra-fast on-machine probing solution for workpiece set-up – the QuickPoint macro cycle delivers market leading speed of measurement. QuickPoint cycles are different from normal touch-trigger cycles as they measure using the analogue deflection of the OSP60 SPRINT™ probe – Renishaw’s innovative analogue probe for machine tools, capable of scanning and touch-point measurement.
Renishaw and other MTConnect members participate in The Grand Challenge at IMTS 2018
With years of experience in our own machine shop, Renishaw understands the power of using measurement data to control machining processes with robust automation. Renishaw is now using this knowledge to contribute to the MTConnect standard and to demonstrate how metrology data can be extracted from its machine tool probes and used in The Grand Challenge at IMTS 2018.
