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.

Mission to Nepal – surgical education and innovation in disaster affected regions

Renishaw_Nepal_featured

The disastrous Nepal earthquake of 2015 left the health and surgical care systems of the country in disarray. To support and train local surgeons, a team of UK specialists undertook three missions to the country. Following the first mission a patient who suffered a road traffic accident was brought to their attention, culminating in what is believed to be the country’s first customised 3D printed orbital implant.

Innovation drives Renishaw Greenpower team to success

Greenpower races require teams to design, build and race fully functioning electric vehicles. Greenpower aims to introduce children and young people aged between nine and 25 to an engineering environment, encouraging participation from schools, universities and companies. Since its first event in 1999, the Greenpower initiative has grown significantly and now works with over 8,000 students across the country.

Renishaw’s pioneering RESOLUTE™ encoder family is now compatible with Yaskawa serial communications protocol

Renishaw_ResoluteEncoder_post2

Renishaw’s RESOLUTE absolute optical encoder is now compatible with the Yaskawa serial communications protocol in linear and rotary (angle) encoder formats. This allows RESOLUTE to be used with Yaskawa’s drives and controllers such as the Sigma 7 range of servo-products. Yaskawa equipment is regularly used in electronics assembly, Flat Panel Display (FPD) manufacturing, factory automation and general motion control applications.

Renishaw launches world’s first functionally safe absolute open optical encoder

Renishaw_Resolute_FS_post2

Renishaw builds on its existing functionally safe (FS) portfolio by introducing the world’s first SIL2 absolute open-optical encoder for both linear and rotary axis applications. The RESOLUTE™ FS encoder system, part of the RESOLUTE series, offers all the benefits of the standard RESOLUTE variant but with FS certification.

ATOM™ encoders allow rapid, high-accuracy FPD inspection and repair

Renishaw_ATOM_FDP_featured

TPC Motion (TPC), a well-known Korean manufacturer of motion-control components, has developed a laser aperture stop (optical slit) assembly that employs Renishaw’s miniature ATOM linear encoder system on multiple X and Y axes. The aperture stop offers a compact and precise aperture-control solution for the laser repair of FPD assemblies and metal photomasks.
