Renishaw Equator™ 300 Gauging System

The new Renishaw Equator is a versatile alternative to custom gauging, offering inspection of an unprecedented variety of manufactured parts. Alleviating the need for costly hard gauges, it is a software-driven comparative gauge. The Equator system is built around a programmable, parallel kinematic measurement unit that rapidly compares a newly machined part to a reliable dimensional master. MD Calibrations, LLC highly recommends the Equator™ because it can be used for multiple parts, switching between them in seconds, as well as reprogrammable for many other parts throughout its life.

The Equator is not only highly repeatable but its MODUS™ software presents the operator with results in the form of dimensional data. Periodically measuring the master corrects for any drift in the precision of the process due to environment. With Comparison Uncertainty* of ± 0.000080 inches (± 0.002mm), the Equator was designed for companies who are fanatical about quality.

*The process of measuring on an Equator involves defining a series of gauge points on the component surface. Periodic calibration of a master part on a CMM establishes datum values for each gauge point. The same gauge points on the same master Part are measured on the Equator, ‘Mastering’, to establish a correlation with the certified CMM. Subsequently, a regular ‘re-mastering’ process is used to account for changing environmental conditions.
