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 4,000 employees based in 33 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) and is the only UK manufacturer of a machine that prints metal parts.
For analytical applications Renishaw's Raman spectroscopy products identify and characterise the chemistry and structure of materials. For dentistry, Renishaw is the world’s leading supplier of in-lab dental CAD/CAM scanning systems, also offering powerful CAD design software and the manufacture of dental structures, including 3D printed metal frameworks and abutments. Recent healthcare developments include a surgical robot for neurosurgical applications such as Deep Brain Stimulation, and automated multiplex diagnostic and clinical research systems.
