RLS d.o.o., an associate of the Renishaw Group is a Slovenian-based supplier of rotary and linear motion sensors.

Associated with the Renishaw Group since 2000, RLS has now tripled the size of its operations with a new 2,100m² custom-built facility in Komenda, Slovenia. The new building includes a 180m² cleanroom with electro-conductive flooring and conforming to ISO-8 standard.

The grand opening of the new facility in 2012 was attended by members of the Renishaw Board, the Mayor of the city of Komenda, partners from the Jozef Stefan Institute in Ljubljana and the University of Ljubljana, and long term suppliers and customers.

According to Janez Novak, Director of RLS, the company is going to invest a lot of effort into excellence in engineering and upgrading the quality system, given that some of the products are designed for demanding, safety-critical applications. RLS’ vision is to become a leading global manufacturer of innovative linear and rotary sensors and elements.

Sir David McMurtry, Renishaw's Chairman and Chief Executive congratulated Mr Novak and the RLS staff on the occasion.

RLS is a world leader in the design and manufacture of solid-state encoders for measuring speeds and rotary or linear position in harsh applications. Besides motor feedback and positioning control, the magnetic encoders are used for torque sensing, flow control, scanning and instrumentation.

Renishaw took a 50% shareholding in RLS in 2000, giving them access to Renishaw's global distribution strength and applications experience as a world-leading supplier of position encoders.
