Renishaw is demonstrating at IMTS exhibition in Chicago its range of smart factory process control solutions, which are proven to help machine shops across many industries transform their production capabilities. Renishaw’s product portfolio supports the full spectrum of industrial metrology applications, delivering benefits in speed, ease-of-use and flexibility, which help manufacturers integrate smart factory technologies of the future into their existing operations today.
A high-productivity machining cell, featuring fully integrated process control is displayed by Renishaw’s demonstrating how high levels of automation and connectivity can be incorporated into CNC machining operations to improve productivity and process capability. The demo cell reflects process control techniques that Renishaw applies in its own factories to deliver highly automated precision manufacturing.
More and more manufacturers are recognizing the significant benefits of having the flexibility to re-purpose equipment to accommodate shorter product life cycles and increased design variants. At IMTS, Renishaw are showcasing innovative technology that brings this level of flexibility to the automotive and aerospace manufacturing industries.
The new Equator 500 accommodates larger parts, and the introduction of IPC (intelligent process control) software which allows manufacturers to automate process control and tool offset correction directly to CNC machines from any Equator gauge.
