Renishaw will also exhibit Equator, the first product in its new gauging line, which is a new alternative to traditional gauging systems. Its patented low-cost design, unique in construction and method of operation, is capable of high-speed comparative gauging for inspection of high-volume manufactured parts.
Equator has been conceived and developed by working closely with automotive, aerospace and medical gauging users, alongside their manufacturing machines. The result is a lightweight, fast and highly repeatable gauge that operators can use with ‘push-button' simplicity. Equator can switch between parts in seconds, perfect for flexible manufacturing processes or accepting parts from multiple machines.
Also at TCT Live will be a nylon vacuum casting machine, which enables the manufacture of high quality, colour matched parts in glass filled nylon. Components are gas and water tight, suitable for crash testing, and are chemically resistant; resulting in the manufacture of high performance polymer components in nylon PA6 for a range of demanding applications.
TCT Live 2011 will be held 27-29 September 2011 at the NEC, Birmingham UK
