Global engineering technologies company, Renishaw will exhibit a range of its advanced metrology products at the Precisiebeurs 2013 in The Netherlands.

RESOLUTE, one of the most advanced single-track absolute optical encoder systems in the world will be on display at the Renishaw stand. This system is offered with the BiSS high-speed open serial protocol, which is available with a variety of resolutions for both rotary and linear scales. BiSS is perfect for dynamic axes that require high-acceleration, smooth velocity control, excellent bi-directional repeatability and outstanding positional stability. 

RESOLUTE UHV will be on display as the world's first true-absolute optical encoder for ultra-high vacuum environments, making it the ideal choice for many applications in the semiconductor industry, including wafer handling. 

Renishaw will also exhibit the new AksIM absolute magnetic encoder, which was launched recently by RLS, a Renishaw associate company. AksIM features excellent cost-performance, zero mechanical hysteresis, 18-bit resolution and support for a range of data output formats. 

AksIM is suitable for a diverse range of motion control applications including pan-tilt or azimuth-elevation platforms, automation systems and medical equipment. 

Renishaw's RLE laser interferometer system will also be on show and is specifically designed for high-precision positional feedback applications. Each system consists of an RLU laser unit and one or two RLD10 detector heads, which can be selected from a range of six different types. 

Benefits of the RLE system include fibre-optic laser launch, integrated interferometer optics and beam steerers, the removal of thermal error sources, and ease of use when compared with conventional laser systems. 

Precisiebeurs 2013 will be held from 3 December to 4 December in Veldhoven, The Netherlands. Renishaw will be exhibiting on stand 164 at the NH Conference Centre, Koningshof Hotel.
