Apex improves capabilities and responsiveness through investment in 5-axis CMM technology and flexible gauging

A step-change in macro-economic factors led CMM specialists, Apex Metrology Ltd (Apex), to conduct a strategic review of its service offering. Customer demands were changing rapidly and becoming less predictable. Part complexities were increasing, delivery deadlines shortening and production volumes becoming more fluid. A move to Renishaw's REVO® 5-axis co-ordinate measurement system and Equator™ gauging system ensured Apex maintained the responsiveness and future-proofing it needed for the years ahead. Read more

Having trouble scanning aluminium? OPTiMUM™ diamond styli can help

Many customers contact us to report they're suffering problems when scanning aluminium. After just a few scans, black bands can start to form around the stylus ball. This is called material build-up. Read more

Magnetic encoders support the stabilisation control of a self-balancing two-wheeled robotic vehicle

In the design of a self-balancing two-wheeled robotic vehicle, accurate high-speed measurement of angular rotation is a key requirement. Furthermore, the minimisation of component weight and size is an equally vital consideration. Engineering students at Tokyo Denki University found the answer in the RM08 rotary magnetic encoder, from Renishaw's associate company, RLS. Read more

Additief geproduceerde styli

Additieve productie in metaal (AM) is een flexibele en krachtige technologie die te gebruiken is om componenten en onderdelen te creëren die met traditionele productiemethodes niet gemaakt kunnen worden. Dit betreft onder meer complexe vormen met inwendige structuren en rasterwerk, die zowel licht van gewicht als sterk zijn en een herhaalbare metrologie bieden. De hoge mate van flexibiliteit in ontwerpen betekent dat additief geproduceerde styli specifiek op maat te maken zijn voor vrijwel elke toepassing. Lees verder

AksIM™ supports Universal Robots for smart factory automation

Industrial robots usually operate in safety zones and are used for heavy, highly hazardous and repetitive tasks in aerospace, automotive assembly, handling, painting, coating and other applications. Conventional industrial robots are typically gigantic and bulky, they occupy a large area and the programming processes are usually time-consuming. Read more

XM-60 and XM-600 multi-axis calibrator

XM-60 is a laser measurement system capable of measuring errors in six degrees of freedom along a linear axis, simultaneously from a single set-up. It provides a powerful diagnostic tool to measure all geometric errors in the axis from a single capture. For users of volumetric compensation XM-60 provides a quick and accurate method of data population. All measurements are made optically allowing use in any orientation. XM-600 laser measurement system offers enhanced capability to connect directly with Renishaw's range of UCC CMM controllers. Read more and watch the video
