  • Equator™300 gauging system
    The Equator gauging system enables process control by delivering highly repeatable, thermally insensitive, versatile and reprogrammable gauging to the shop floor....

  • Equator is a radical new alternative to traditional dedicated gauging, filling a gap in the market never before addressed. It is more than just a new gauging system, it marks the launch of Renishaw's first gauging product line.

    Faster and more repeatable

    Based on an easily scaleable and adaptable ‘parallel kinematic' structure, Equator's unique patented principle allows high speed scanning and rapid moves between features, while retaining stiffness that delivers impressive point to point repeatability, critical for accurate gauging.

    Installation of an Equator is possible in minutes, and an operator can switch between gauging of different parts in seconds. Re-configuration of the gauging system to cater for part design changes, or to measure new parts, is possible in a fraction of the time taken with conventional custom gauging, using the comprehensive industry standard DMIS programming.

    Easy operation, easy programming

    Equator systems are available with two levels of software, a programmable version for production engineers to create DMIS programs and, at a lower price, a shop floor system which allows those programs to be executed but prevents operators from making modifications.

    Both software levels include the intuitive MODUS™ Organiser operator front-end software, requiring little or no training, while on the programmable system the comprehensive MODUS™ Equator programming software allows engineers to rapidly create gauging routines for any part - simple or complex, prismatic or free-form. MODUS Equator features the ability to easily program scanning measurements and touch points, using the industry-standard Renishaw SP25 compact 

    scanning probe. By scanning, thousands of data points can be taken to define a feature, allowing true form analysis of any feature.

    By taking the dongle provided with the programmable system and plugging it into a shop floor system, full programming functionality is activated on that shop floor system, ideal for engineers to adjust programs but also retain control.

    Thermal stability

    Equator's innovative and highly repeatable gauging technology is based on the traditional comparison of production parts to a reference master part. Re-mastering is as swift as measuring a production part and immediately compensates for any change in the thermal conditions of a shop-floor environment. Equator can be used in factories with wide temperature variation – simply re-master and the system is ‘re-zeroed', ready for repeatable comparison to the master.

    Traceability to calibrated CMMs

    Master parts do not need to be expensive custom parts like a traditional gauge; take a production part and measure it on a co-ordinate measuring machine (CMM) to establish feature variation from CAD or drawing nominals. The results from any CMM, operating with any CMM programming software, can be configured to be used directly within the Equator software.

    Effectively, the calibrated absolute accuracy of the CMM (often located in remote temperature controlled rooms to ensure accuracy) can be ‘extended' onto the shop floor to provide calibrated traceability to Equator measurements. With the calibration file loaded into the Equator software, measurements made in the Equator system can be referred back to the CAD or drawing nominals. This allows true process control with SPC packages.

    Equator controller

    The Equator controller, included in the purchase price of every Equator system, is a powerful dedicated control system that provides a secure and robust environment for running the Equator gauging system software. It is similar to machine tool control systems, with the added ability to run Equator-specific Windows applications. Designed for Equator, it incorporates all the necessary electronic boards and software in one package. The user can create and execute DMIS measurement programs, change measurement settings and transfer data or programs.

    An additional PC is not required when operating the Equator, reducing cost to the customer and eliminating the chance of incompatibility or un-predictable performance arising from the wide variation of PC architectures.

    Low-cost fixturing

    Compared to dedicated gauging, Equator cuts fixture costs considerably. By using fixturing that positions parts to within 1 mm of where the master was measured, which has no significant effect on system repeatability, and by establishing the part orientation and datums on the part itself, the need for expensive precision fixtures is removed.

    Integrated stylus changing

    Further versatility is offered by the Equator-specific stylus changing rack, included in the purchase price of an Equator system, allowing automated in-cycle changing of SM25 stylus modules. The SM25 modules couple to the industry-standard SP25 CMM probe, allowing Equator users to swap the stylus configurations without re-qualifying each time. Up to six stylus combinations can be loaded into the rack at any time. These can be used on a single complex part or with multiple parts of varying geometries.

    Automation options

    Equator can be integrated into automated cells, using the optional I/O interface to connect it to a robot, or by outputting the gauging results to an SPC package. Some SPC packages also offer the ability to connect to certain modern machine tool controls to update offset values, for true automated process control.

    The versatile gauge™

    Equator is unique in its design and method of operation, and has already changed the thinking of hundreds of production engineers, making it the new gauge of choice. Together with its versatility and repeatability, Equator looks set to change the world of gauging.

  • QUANTiC™ encoder series
    The QUANTiC encoder system integrates Renishaw's filtering optics design and interpolation technology to create a high performance, super-compact, digital all-in-one incremental open optical encoder....

  • In-built reliability and ease of installation

    Robust position measurement over contamination  

    QUANTiC readheads ensure excellent motion control performance in a wide range of applications by minimising positional error over scale contamination. A new detector design provides an additional layer of signal filtering which helps to eliminate non-harmonic signal frequencies, ensuring low Sub-Divisional Error (SDE) and minimal signal variation over dirt or contamination on the scale.

    Increased operating tolerances whilst maintaining metrology

    The new detector design helps to increase installation and operational tolerances whilst maintaining metrological performance. Combining this with Renishaw's established filtering optics and signal processing technology makes QUANTiC a robust and easy to use incremental digital quadrature encoder.

    Optional Advanced Diagnostic Tool ADTi-100

    The QUANTiC encoder system is compatible with the Advanced Diagnostic Tool ADTi-100 and ADT View software. They provide comprehensive real-time encoder data feedback to aid more challenging installations and diagnostics. The intuitive software interface can be used for:

    • Remote calibration
    • Signal optimisation over the entire axis length
    • Readhead pitch indication
    • Limit and reference mark indication
    • Digital readout of encoder position (relative to the scale)
    • Monitoring the velocity against time graph
    • Exporting and saving data

BEWARE - Special Warning Notice about ExpoGuide and FAIRGuide

With the ongoing solicitations, SEMI would like to continue to alert you with questionable professional practices perpetrated against exhibitors by (Austria) and Expo Guide (Mexico), Event Fair - The Exhibitors' Guide with their misleading directory services. There may be others that we are not aware of and are hence not named here. 

These companies provide legitimate exhibition guides aimed at exhibitors across the globe offering online listing services. They use a form which resembles and organizer's free catalogue listing service, inviting exhibitors to complete the form for an entry in an on-line directory. Unsuspecting exhibitors who sign and return the form are then contracted into a three-year, non-retractable agreement, which could cost the exhibitor a significant amount of money, with very limited foreseeable benefits. The details are often available on the form itself, but are often too small and insignificant to be noticed. It is always wise to really the small print before signing a contract, and if the information is impossible to read then the contract should not be signed. These publications have no connection with SEMI or any of our events, and it is important that all companies are made aware of this. 

Should you receive any communication from the Expo-Guide and or related company, please IGNORE THEM COMPLETELY and DO NOT COMMUNICATE WITH THEM IN ANY WAY.
