Imperial and Metric Metrology Fixtures

Renishaw is introducing a ¼ 20 imperial thread size to its existing metrology fixtures product range. Fixturing components are currently available in M4, M6 and M8 thread sizes.

The Renishaw ¼ 20 fixturing range will be available for purchase early in 2019. Its addition means a complete fixturing solution can now be created for any part regardless of its size, shape or material. 

A range of modular and custom fixturing and software is available for use with coordinate measuring machines (CMMs), Renishaw Equator gauges and vision systems. Using high quality metrology fixtures can improve throughput, reproducibility and accuracy of inspection processes with quick repeatable fixturing set-ups.

Renishaw is focused on bringing new and improved metrology fixtures to market, increasing our capability to deliver advanced metrology technologies, and developing our turnkey solutions. Efforts made in these areas will play a key role within highly automated manufacturing environments in industries such as aerospace, automotive and electronics.
