Renishaw’s Equator comparative gauging system now includes new process monitoring software that displays measurement results of inspected features, as well as the measurement history of each feature, instantly via a monitoring window added to the shop-floor user interface. The intuitive Organizer front-end software works with Renishaw’s comprehensive MODUS™ program to allow operators to manage the re-mastering process based on temperature limits, number of parts or time since the last master.

Operators can configure the system to set extra warning limits on part features, beyond the pass/fail tolerance limits already set by the inspection program, allowing them to take action before a process reaches 100 percent of tolerance. The bar graph turns orange at the warning limit and if the pass/fail tolerance is exceeded, the bar turns red and re-mastering is enforced with an on-screen message to the operator.

One of Equator’s key strengths is that it can operate in factories with wide temperature variation, due to its ability to cope with changes in shop-floor temperature by employing the traditional method of comparing production parts to a reference master part and re-zeroing the system with an inspection routine on the master part.
