  • Laser encoder improves accuracy of optical connector measurement

    柳下技研株式会社 RLE10 Integration of the Renishaw RLE10 laser encoder has enhanced machine alignment, installation and system stability. The positional accuracy of the YGN-590-MT multi-core optical connector inspection machine has been dramatically improved as a result, from 0.1 μm to 0.01 μm resolution.

  • Advanced position encoders in photolithography

    Figure 1: silicon wafer under microscope Optical lithography has been widely used in the semiconductor industry and many other nanotechnology applications. High-throughput machines are required that keep pace with the demand for ever-decreasing device dimensions. Optical position encoders are constantly improving and are now a compact alternative to laser-interferometer systems in some cases.

  • Encoders accelerate PCB impedance verification

    Sam-Jeong PCB under test Volume manufacturing of high frequency electronic products requires high-performance PCB impedance measurement machinery capable of reliably verifying that actual production outcomes meet with calculated impedance targets. Precision machine builder, Sam-Jeong Automation is using Renishaw's TONiC™ incremental encoder and tape scale system to deliver the speed, accuracy and repeatability required by its next generation PCB impedance measurement machine.

  • Renishaw encoders go under the 3DHISTECH microscope

    Pathological tissue sample on slide Located in Budapest, Hungary, 3DHISTECH designs and manufactures one of the world's fastest and highest-capacity autonomous panoramic digital slide scanners – the P1000. The P1000 is a highly accurate scanning microscope that enables large pathology labs to capture ultra-high resolution images of medical samples, while operating unmanned for up to 2 days.

  • New multi-axis periscope enables six degrees of freedom measurements of XY stages

    RMAP-3A multi-axis periscope Renishaw’s new multi-axis periscope (RMAP) is designed to enable six degrees of freedom measurements in XY stage applications, utilising the performance from the RLD10-X3-DI interferometer head, to accurately measure pitch, yaw and roll.
