stands at the forefront of automated metrology. The Group's products provide manufacturers with the ability to machine components accurately, and perform measurement traceable to International Standards. Wherever precision manufacturing is required, the use of Renishaw's products ensures that exacting specifications are met, with cost-effective methods. Probe technology, together with associated software, allows fast, highly repeatable measurements to be carried out on Co-ordinate Measuring Machines (CMMs). Probe repeatability can be one third of a micron - approximately one two hundredth of the thickness of a human hair. A wide range of automated probing systems have been developed to meet the needs of post-process inspection, for quality control.
