Automatically sort parts based on whether they pass or fail inspection with Renishaw's Equator guage systemClick image to enlargeUse Renishaw’s Equator gauging system as a standalone gauging system to maintain accuracy on the shop floor.

This flexible gauge provides speed, repeatability and allows in-process corrections to be made manually or automatically after key manufacturing operations.

It provides quality assurance during manufacturing and increasing confidence in final part quality and both simple and complex measurements are achievable on a single device.

As part of an automated cell, it delivers all the benefits of a standalone gauging system, while the connection to robots and controllers eliminates human error and boosts throughput.

Offset feedback can be sent directly to machine tool controllers and parts can be automatically sorted based on whether they pass or fail inspection.

Minimal training is required for operators to run complex gauging routines at a touch of a button and use bar code readers for automatic program selection.

Part-to-part inspection results are instantly visible using the built-in Process Monitor graph, and the systems can operate from 5 - 50 °C and up to 80 per cent humidity
