Quality Machine Building Renishaw

The Renishaw XM-60 provides an accurate laser system that incorporates an optical roll measurement and fibre optic launch system.

renishaw xm-60The Renishaw XM-60 multi-axis calibrator is capable of measuring all six degrees of freedom from a single set-up, in any orientation for linear axes. It offers significant improvement in simplicity and time saving over conventional laser measurement techniques. The XM-60 multi-axis calibrator provides a highly accurate laser system that incorporates unique technology with a patented optical roll measurement and fibre optic launch system. The compact launch unit is remote from the laser unit, reducing heat effects at the point of measurement. It can be mounted directly to the machine on its side, upside down and even on its back, which is particularly beneficial in areas with difficult machine access. The Renishaw XM-60 has been designed to measure machine errors directly, reducing the inaccuracies which can result from complex mathematics used in some alternative measurement techniques. Direct measurement makes comparison before and after machine adjustments a quick and simple task with users’ existing part programs for XL-80 measurement. The receiver is fully wireless and powered by rechargeable batteries, avoiding trailing cables during machine moves which could cause inaccuracies or break the laser beam during measurement. Renishaw’s XM-60 multi-axis calibrator is supplied in a robust Peli system case, with space for accessories and XC-80 compensator kit.
