Renishaw is introducing a ¼ 20 imperial thread size to its existing metrology fixtures product range.

Fixturing components are currently available in M4, M6 and M8 thread sizes. The Renishaw ¼ 20 fixturing range will be available for purchase early in 2019. Its addition means a complete fixturing solution can now be created for any part regardless of its size, shape or material. 

A range of modular and custom fixturing and software is available for use with co-ordinate measuring machines (CMMs), Renishaw Equator gauges and vision systems. Using high quality metrology fixtures can improve throughput, reproducibility and accuracy of inspection processes with quick repeatable fixturing setups.
