Whatever your machine or motion system, you need to know that it is
up to the job - before you even begin cutting or processing material
or measuring components. You can gain a detailed picture of how each
characteristic of a machine's positioning performance is varying
over time. Predict when maintenance work will be required for
specific machines, and establish contingency plans in advance.
Improve machine performance
Renishaw's performance measurement equipment can actually improve
machine performance through targeted maintenance and error
knowledge of your machine / manufacturing capabilities
Use the right machine for the job - assigning specific toleranced
jobs to machines capable of holding these tolerances ensures that
the machine is fit for the required purpose and less likely to
Prove the performance of your machines
When customers need confidence in the quality of your machines or
process then calibration graphs and regular performance evaluation
results of your machines are excellent proof. These can give you a
valuable competitive advantage over other manufacturers, who may not
perform such tests.
Comply with quality assurance procedures and standards
It is a requirement of the ISO 9000 series of quality standards that
manufacturing and inspection equipment is calibrated, monitored and
controlled using recognised and traceable systems and methods.
Provide a professional maintenance service
High quality after-sales service is a must. Using the same
calibration tools in the customer's premises as the system OEM uses
in his factory is the best way to restore the machine to the
original manufacturer's specification.
