Advanced Service Equipment

Renishaw XL-80 Compact Laser System (+/- 0.5 ppm, 4.0 m/s performance)

Linear measurement accuracy is assured +/- 0.5 ppm thanks to a precision stabilized laser source and accurate environmental compensation. Readings can be taken at up to 50 kHz, with a maximum linear measurement speed of 4 m/s and a linear resolution of 1 nm, even at maximum speed. All measurement options (not just linear) are based on interferometric measurements, giving confidence in the accuracy of the data recorded.

Renishaw XR20-W Rotary Axis Calibrator (+/- 1 arc second accuracy)

  • Automated calibration – The XR20-W is motorized and data capture is synchronized to axis movement, i.e. no operator intervention required during data capture.
  • High accuracy and repeatability – Measurement accuracy of +/- 1 arc second. All Renishaw systems are factory calibrated and delivered with traceable certification.
  • Use of Renishaw laser system – Provides a high integrity, non-contact reference measurement, remote from the axis under test.

Renishaw QC20-W BallBar System – Regular ballbar testing of machine tools helps to:

  • Ensure accurate parts, the first time, from CNC machines
  • Reduce machine down-time, scrap and inspection costs
  • Demonstrate compliance with machine performance and quality management standards
  • Implement fact-based predictive maintenance

Vibrotest® 60 spindle vibration analyzer 

  • Predictive Machine Maintenance has many facets – Vibrotest 60 is a vibration analyzer, data collector, and balancing instrument in one package.
    • For off-line data collection and evaluation, Vibrotest 60 leaves nothing to be desired, with low weight, large storage capacity, flexible handling and xms monitoring software and database.
    • As an analyzer, the 2-channel Vibrotest 60 sets the standard with the extent of its functions.
    • As a field balancing instrument, Vibrotest 60 uses unique methods to simplify and shorten a balancing procedure.
