Renishaw Central collects, manages data

Sept. 20, 2023
The smart-manufacturing platform collects and presents process and metrology data, status and alarms across a manufacturer’s shop floor.

Renishaw Central Renishaw’s new smart-manufacturing data platform collects and presents process and metrology data by connecting to measurement devices across a manufacturer’s shop floor. It also collects status and alarm data from connected equipment, which can include additive manufacturing systems, on-machine measurement systems and shop-floor gauging systems. The data is displayed within the platform's dashboards or third-party applications. The dashboards allow live data to be displayed, sorted, filtered and plotted. The platform operates on premises, which ensures the system is not dependent on an internet connection. It can even monitor devices remotely. 

What’s new? The Renishaw Central system. The company will demonstrate it at the Quality Show in Rosemont, Ill., and Westec in Long Beach, Calif., respectively. 

Benefits The ability of manufacturers to gain valuable insights to analyze, identify, predict and prevent process errors before they occur. This can result in optimized processes, greater productivity and efficiency, reduced downtime and minimized waste.
