Wireless Calibrator

The new Renishaw XR20-W calibration system measures the angular position of rotary axes to within ±1 arc second wirelessly, for testing the accuracy of lathes, multiaxis machine tools, mill-Wireless Calibratorturn machines, trunnion tables and spindles. The XR20-W works in conjunction with XL-80 or ML10 laser interferometers, as the system combines the readings of the rotary calibrator and laser to determine positioning errors in axes under test. The rotary axis calibrator is generating positive feedback from the field with its advanced, compact design allowing easier set-up and use. Application flexibility is extended by the addition of new off-axis rotary software that allows the XR20-W to be used even when it cannot be positioned directly on the rotary axis under test. The software calculates true position and records axis performance and errors when compared to the intended target. The test takes about 10 minutes and results are sent to a PC via Bluetooth connection.
