The new Renishaw Equator™ is a versatile alternative to custom gauging, offering inspection of an unprecedented variety of manufactured parts. It has been developed and proven on the shop-floor in collaboration with industry-leading companies in multiple industries and applications.
Installation of Equator is possible in minutes, and re-configuration of the gauging system to cater for part design changes or to measure new parts is now possible in a fraction of the time taken with conventional custom gauging.
The Equator’s innovative 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 thermal effects, returning data that could have been collected in the temperature controlled quality room.
The compact Equator gauging system is out of the box, up and running, in less than 20 minutes. The gauge weighs just 25kg, requires single phase power and no costly compressed air supply.The intuitive operator front-end software requires little or no training and the optimized ratio of working envelope to machine footprint means Equator can be set to work in even the most crowded of factory spaces.
