Renishaw (Hoffman Estates, IL) has developed the “lean design” XL-80 system for laser interferometer calibration, which allows a 4x faster slew rate, 10x higher dynamic data capture rate, and a smaller package. The XL-80 brings nanometer-level motion analysis to advanced machine tools, robots, and assembly systems. Other features include:
- A warm-up of only six minutes, which minimizes waits to increase available measurement time.
- A system accuracy of ±0.5 ppm, which is maintained over the full operating range of 32-104°F.
- The ability to maintain accuracy against variations in temperature, pressure, and humidity by updating the environment factory every seven seconds via a USB link.
