The Gloucestershire-based metrology company Renishaw is to exhibit the new XR20-W rotary axis calibration system as well as the AxiSet Check-Up system and the QC20-W wireless telescoping ballbar at MACH 2012 at the NEC in Birmingham this year.

The XR20-W rotary axis calibration system allows the measurement of rotary axis positional accuracy to within 1 arc second when in operation with the XL-80 laser interferometer system.

Totally wireless operation and modular mounting systems ensure suitability for a wide range of machines. The XR20-W supersedes the Renishaw RX10, which established benchmarks for accuracy, repeatability and automatic operation.

The AxiSet Check-Up system allows for companies to check, identify and report on poor machine alignments and geometry. Companies that use five-axis machines and multi-tasking mill-turn machines are able to increase efficiency by quickly determining problems that can cause extended process setting times, as well as non-conforming parts.

The QC20-W wireless telescoping ballbar is the first calibration tool to allow testing in three orthogonal planes through a single reference point. A single, simple hardware set up means quicker testing and the ability to produce a representative volumetric measurement of positioning accuracy.

The firm will be exhibiting from stand 5640 in hall 5, where the above will be on show.
