A new process monitoring window has been added to the shop-floor user interface for Renishaw's Equator gauging system. This instantly displays measurement results of inspected features to the operator on a bar-graph display. It also shows the history of measurement on each feature so that process trends can be seen.
The system's re-mastering process can now be managed based on temperature limits, number of parts or time since last master. The new process monitoring window is now included with all Equator systems, giving engineers a range of software tools for monitoring their process.
