Updated rotary axis calibrator from Renishaw.

Renishaw has updated its established RX10 rotary axis calibrator with the XR20-W, a completely new design that offers increased flexibility, ease-of-use and speed, plus fully wireless operation.

The XR20-W rotary axis calibrator features unique Renishaw developed bearing and encoder technology as well as Bluetooth wireless technology. This design has enabled Renishaw to greatly reduce the size and weight of the XR20-W compared to the outgoing RX1O. The new unit weighs just over 1 kg.

A separate mounting base enables simple, fast and easy centration and fixing, while adapters supplied with the main unit allow fitment to a variety of rotary tables and axes.

The XR20-W rotary axis calibrator includes built-in retro-reflectors, with separate alignment targets on the reverse side of the retro-reflector housing. These ensure faster set-up and minimise alignment errors.

The unit is powered by rechargeable batteries which, together with the wireless technology, allow fully wireless operation.
