The new Renishaw Equator™ is a versatile
alternative to custom gauging, offering
inspection of an unprecedented variety
of manufactured parts. It has been developed
and proven on the shop-floor in collaboration
with industry-leading companies in multiple
industries and applications.
Installation of Equator is possible
in minutes, and re-configuration of
the gauging system to cater for part
design changes or to measure new parts
is now possible in a fraction of the
time taken with conventional custom
thousands of points collected during
3D scanning with the industry standard
SP25 probe, results in better metrology
and enables effective form measurement.
Every data point can be used for comparative
measurement - one Equator can perform
the same function of thousands of DTIs,
LVDTs or handheld instruments.
Equator's innovative gauging technology
is based on the traditional comparison
of production parts to a reference master
Re-mastering is as swift as measuring
a production part and immediately compensates
for any thermal effects, returning data
that could have been collected in the
temperature controlled quality room.
compact Equator gauging system is out
of the box, up and running, in less
than 20 minutes. The gauge weighs just
25kg, requires single phase power and
no costly compressed air supply.
The intuitive operator front-end software
requires little or no training and the
optimised ratio of working envelope
to machine footprint means Equator can
be set to work in even the most crowded
of factory spaces.
the flexibility to be used on multiple
tasks, the purchase of an Equator gauge
will see a fast return on investment.
Replacing manual measurement with an
automated Equator gauging system can
greatly increase throughput and reduce
scrap rates, at a fraction of the cost
of an equivalent custom gauging system,
including associated fixturing.
With the Equator, your quality function
can become as versatile as the machine.
