  • Encoders hold the key to ultra-accurate motion control

    RLE installation and alignment Aerotech, continuing its commitment to the art and science of motion control, looks to Renishaw for versatile, high-precision laser interferometer encoders for its medical stages.

  • Renishaw unveils the XM-60 multi-axis calibrator at MACH 2018

    XM-60 on machine with beams Renishaw, the world-leading metrology specialist, will exhibiting its new XM-60 multi-axis calibrator at MACH 2018 on stand H19-430.The XM-60 is capable of measuring all six degrees of freedom from a single set-up, in any orientation for linear axes. It offers significant improvement in simplicity and time saving over conventional laser measurement techniques.

  • Ballbar diagnostics aid airframe manufacture

Machining complex, high-value airframe components, BAE Systems turned to a wireless ballbar system to provide the machine tool diagnostics data it needed to maximise quality and productivity.

  • New 'free-run mode' in CARTO 2.1 software extends XM-60 functionality

    Capture 2.1 - during test in 'free-run mode' Building on the launch of the Renishaw XM-60 multi-axis calibrator in September 2016, the new release of CARTO 2.1 software brings valuable new functionality. The new ‘free-run mode’ in CARTO 2.1 software allows users of the XM-60 calibration system to capture data immediately, without having to define the positions, or even the number of targets.

  • Renishaw technology helps Breton calibrate its in-house machinery and control the quality of its output

    Breton's XCEEDER blisk test When Breton SpA wanted to add machine tool manufacture to its core business of building stone-processing machinery, the increase in required levels of precision prompted the introduction of around 30 devices from Renishaw, including laser interferometers, rotary axis calibrators, ballbars and touch-trigger probes. As a result, Breton’s range of high-speed, five-axis CNC machining centres are now among the world’s most advanced.
