Rotary Axis Calibration Made Easy



Rotary axis calibration with CARTO software

Rotary measurement with XM-60 multi-axis calibrator

Rotary measurement with XL-80 laser

Renishaw offers its XR20-W rotary axis calibrator. CARTO 3.0 allows users to quickly capture and analyze machine performance data from rotary axes.

For the first time, the Renishaw XM-60 multi-axis calibrator can be used with the XR20-W rotary axis calibrator, providing one easy to use and intuitive software solution for all Renishaw laser calibration products.

Combining the capability of XR20-W and XM-60 with CARTO 3.0 reduces the calibration of a 5-axis machine tool from several days to within half a day.

The new software allows multiple error types to be analyzed over different timeframes, building up a comprehensive overview of a machine's performance. CARTO 3.0 automatically stores complete datasets for each machine tool within a single database. By independently comparing the different errors associated with each axis, over different timeframes, users can plan preventative maintenance schedules.

With Renishaw's CARTO software suite, data is more visible, usable and actionable. This makes it a suitable platform for supporting smart factories with Industry 4.0 based technology.
