Renishaw has unveiled a new product line specifically designed for the industrial automation market.
The new RCS product line builds on its existing expertise and technologies for industrial metrology applications and aims to transform the process of commissioning and servicing industrial automation technologies. Developed to solve some fundamental challenges within the global industrial automation industry, the new RCS product line focusses on the problems associated with manual set-up, calibration, and maintenance of robots, such as operational accuracy and repeatability.
The range includes three products: RCS L-90, RCS T-90, and RCS P-series, all supported by a dedicated software suite.
This new product line for industrial robotics brings the company's metrology expertise to an industry that has significant challenges with performance accuracy and repeatability. Categorized as either 'in-field' or 'in-process' products, the new RCS products help to simplify robot set-up, health checks and recovery of robotic applications following collisions. Working with Renishaw's new intuitive robotics software, RCS Software Suite, the products support robots from a wide range of manufacturers.
"The existing processes surrounding robot set-up and maintenance are largely manual for an industry built upon automation," says Dr Kevyn Jonas, Director of Renishaw's Industrial Automation Products Division. "With no existing fully comprehensive solutions, these methods have been accepted, until today. Robot integrators and users now finally have a solution for a quick, simple and traceable means to manage their robots."
