A world leader in engineering technologies, Renishaw supplies products for applications as diverse as metrology, raman spectroscopy, motion control, machine tool automation, calibration, co-ordinate measurement, CAD/CAM dentistry, additive manufacturing/3D printing, stereotactic neurosurgery and molecular diagnostics. Renishaw has over 4,500 employees based in 35 countries.
Products include sensors for co-ordinate measuring machines (CMMs) and sensors for CNC machine tools including laser tool setters, contact tool setters, tool breakage detectors, touch probes and high accuracy inspection probes. For motion control, Renishaw supplies laser encoders, optical linear encoders, absolute encoders, incremental encoders, optical angle encoders, optical rotary encoders, magnetic rotary encoders, magnetic chip encoders and magnetic linear encoders. To analyse the static and dynamic performance of position-critical motion systems, use a Renishaw laser interferometer system.
Renishaw is also a world leader in additive manufacturing (3D printing) with machines that 'print' metal parts. For analytical applications Renishaw's Raman spectroscopy products identify and characterise the chemistry and structure of materials. In healthcare, Renishaw is a world leader in the manufacture of dental and medical structures, including 3D printed metal frameworks, abutments and medical implants for maxillofacial applications.
Renishaw also supplies a surgical robot and planning software for neurosurgical applications such as Deep Brain Stimulation
