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.
Renishaw scanning technology aids new Yamazaki Mazak solution for gear manufacturing
At IMTS 2018, taking place in Chicago, USA, from 10-15 September, Yamazaki Mazak is showcasing its new Integrex AG series of machine tools which utilise Renishaw SPRINT™ technology to deliver a rapid and flexible solution for gear manufacturing.
Speed up on-machine measurement with SupaTouch technology
SupaTouch – an optimisation routine within Renishaw’s industry standard Inspection Plus macro software – intelligently optimises on machine probing cycles, leading to a cycle time reduction of up to 60% on CNC machine tools. During 2018 Renishaw will introduce a new version of Inspection Plus, with updated SupaTouch technology, at IMTS, USA; AMB, Germany and JIMTOF, Japan.
