FORTiS Enclosed Encoder Enhances Grinding Precision And Performance
After testing and evaluation, TGT selected Renishaw’s FORTiS enclosed encoders for its latest series of tool grinding machines. The ease of installation and other leading-edge features of the FORTiS encoder system enable TGT to optimise its machines’ performance.
Renishaw Keeps Machine Tool Probe Calibration Simply Accurate
Spindle probes for CNC machine tools can be highly repeatable, but their performance relies on accurate calibration. Renishaw has developed a simple solution to overcome the challenges associated with the manual probe calibration process while consistently achieving high levels of repeatability.
Bringing Metrology Into Medical Device Production
Hexagon: Leica Absolute Tracker AT960
Hexagon’s Leica Absolute Tracker AT960 is the first fully portable dynamic six degrees of freedom (6DoF) laser measurement system, that represents a single-unit solution for 6DoF reflector, probe and non-contact scanner measurement, as well as 7DoF real-time machine-controlled inspection. It is an ideal solution for applications spanning aerospace, automotive and other sectors.
The Leica Absolute Interferometer (AIFM) enables the tracker to measure a moving target at a data rate of 1000 points/sec with a maximum distance uncertainty of just 10 microns. Scanning accuracy is as low as 50 microns for sphere radius measurement components and as low as 60 microns for spatial length measurement components.
It has an enhanced quick-release mechanism, robust eshock resistance and an in-built tilt detection system that makes mounting the tracker on the fly hassle-free.
