  • Renishaw launches flexible and cost-effective arc encoder range

    RKL partial arc Renishaw, the global metrology specialist, introduces a new range of encoder solutions for partial arc measurement applications. Partial arc capability is now available across all variants of RKL scale, supporting incremental and absolute measurement with the ViONiC™, TONiC™, QUANTiC™, ATOM™, ATOM DX™ and RESOLUTE™ encoder readheads.

  • Precision position feedback for smart manufacturing

    RCDM disc scale As the world enters a new era of smart manufacturing, industry demand for precision motion control systems is increasing to unprecedented levels. Based in Taiwan, Chieftek Precision Co., Ltd. (CPC) is a global manufacturer of precision motion control products such as linear guide rails and direct-drive (DD) motion stages.

  • Renishaw launches Advanced Diagnostic Tool ADTa-100 for absolute encoders

    Advanced Diagnostic Tool ADTa-100 Renishaw will launch a new addition to its Advanced Diagnostic Tool (ADT) family of encoder tools at SPIE Photonics West 2020, from 4–6 February. Vistors are invited to talk with our experts on booth 5458 about their metrology challenges and Renishaw’s world-leading metrology solutions.

  • Renishaw and RLS help to drive a robot revolution

    Ulrich Kerber, Head of industrial drives at TQ-RoboDrive TQ-RoboDrive manufactures a range of hollow shaft motors for collaborative robots. This case study explores how RLS, in conjunction with Renishaw, has adapted the AksIM™ encoder to meet the new challenging form factors and performance requirements of TQ-RoboDrive as they work to make advanced cobots a reality.

  • Substrate mastered encoder scale for laser cutting machine

    Laser cutting machine application Laser cutting is used across industries ranging from aerospace to civil construction. This article explores how Renishaw’s substrate mastered linear encoder scales, such as RKL, might be used in a fibre laser cutting application where a laser is used to precisely cut large sheets or plates of metal.
