As a world leader in position feedback technology with a global support network, Renishaw is a regular attendee of the SPS IPC exhibition, where our local teams demonstrate our latest innovations, such as industry leading absolute RESOLUTE and miniature incremental ATOM encoders.
Discover how Technical Leader Dr. Finlay Evans and his team raced to innovate special digital position sensors (encoders) for the Land Rover BAR race yacht. The solution enables the helmsman and crew to race the yacht with precise wing and rudder feedback whilst enabling the capture of high-quality performance data during development and training.
Manufacturing error-free flat panel displays is a challenge, because as display performance improves, manufacturing processes become more complex and panel defects can become more common.
Inspection and repair procedures have been developed to ensure that errors have minimal effect on display quality.
Renishaw's ATOM encoder system has been integrated into a variable aperture stop design.
Precise manipulation of the laser aperture, in the range of 5 - 50 microns (um) in diameter, is vital to ensure successful panel repair.

Encoders are a key part of vehicular LiDAR systems that are used to accurately map vast road infrastructure.
LiDAR scanning systems provide precise and accurate co-ordinate measurement data that is used to create realistic and detailed 3D city models viewable from street-level.
LiDAR scanning systems consist of a laser range-finder with rotating scan mirror and various positioning and orientation systems.
These systems capture 360° 3D point cloud data whilst rotating at more than 1000 RPM.
Renishaw's ATOM™ encoder series is perfectly positioned to meet the challenges of high performance in a small footprint.
The ATOM encoder is also the world's first miniature encoder to employ advanced filtering optics.
The QUANTiC™ series of encoders are made for manufacturing industries. The QUANTiC encoders are easy to install with exceptionally wide installation and running tolerances, along with built-in installation and calibration functions. QUANTiC encoders combine high speed interpolation with impressive metrology performance, whilst being compatible with the Advanced Diagnostic Tool, ADTi-100.
Learn how to install the TONiC super-compact digital encoder readhead.
Please refer to the relevant TONiC installation guide for more information.
The TONiC encoder series is Renishaw’s super-compact, non-contact incremental optical encoder that offers speeds up to 10 m/s and, when combined with the Ti interface, resolutions down to 1 nm for both linear and rotary applications.
TONiC systems are quick and simple to install with wide set-up tolerances and calibration at the push of a button. TONiC's dynamic signal processing gives improved signal stability with ultra-low Sub-Divisional Error, high running speeds and compatibility with linear and rotary applications. This makes TONiC suitable for the highest of performance applications where speed and accuracy are crucial. TONiC UHV is available for ultra-high vacuum applications.
Renishaw’s expert engineers introduce the technology behind the new ATOM DX™ digital encoder.
The ATOM DX encoder builds on Renishaw's ATOM™ miniature encoder series, first launched in 2014, and incorporates advanced interpolation technology originally developed for the VIONiC™ and QUANTiC™ digital encoder families. The combination of miniature size, digital quadrature output direct from the readhead and Renishaw's market proven filtering optics create a powerful foundation for the building blocks of a motion system.
