End-to-end support for the machine tool industry
Renishaw produces metrology devices, process control equipment, and systems for CNC machine tools, their users, and their manufacturers.
We develop systems designed to maximise the performance of CNC machine tools. Automating the setup and process control activities ensures high quality, highly productive manufacturing, across all industrial sectors.
Our experience, flexibility, knowledge and close working relationships with machine tool OEMs ensures that our latest - and even custom-designed - technologies are easily integrated into new machine designs. These technologies can also be utilised during manufacturing and commissioning new machine tools to make machines the best they can be.
The integration of Renishaw's smart manufacturing technologies adds value throughout the product lifecycle of a CNC machine tool. It helps OEMs to differentiate their value proposition to end-user customers.
Digital technologies are transforming the industrial sector, enabling manufacturers like us to embrace data-driven manufacturing. Renishaw systems collect data to identify where processes can be improved and, ultimately, to maximise profitability. End-to-end process data capture provides insights for analysing and improving manufacturing processes. Predict, identify, and correct process errors before they happen.
