In-house metrology increases machine tool uptime by 20%
With machine tools resources failing outside of their warranty periods and 3-week long waits for external service engineer visits, Omsk State Technical University had to act quickly to protect its teaching, research and industry support services. The introduction of Renishaw’s XL-80 laser interferometer and QC20-W ballbar systems did more than just provide the technical solution the University needed.
Substrate mastered encoder scale for laser cutting machine
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.
QC20-W Ballbar system boosts confidence in pre-owned machine tool sales
Any company buying a used machine tool needs to be certain of its ability to deliver the accuracy demanded by its manufacturing process. For many companies, pre-purchase condition-checking by a certified machine inspector and thorough static accuracy measurements are not enough. More rigorous dynamic accuracy measurements are also needed. Machine tool seller U-MACHINE adopted a Renishaw QC20-W ballbar system to provide its customers with the additional analysis they required.
