Renishaw strikes innovative new deal
By Simon Hacker | 14th March 2023
Two decades on from their first agreement, Renishaw and global French tech firm Metrologic Group have strengthened their collaboration with a new strategic agreement.
Metrologic, based in Isere, France and part of the Sandvik Group, are long-standing partners to the Gloucestershire tech giant headquartered in Wotton-under-Edge.
Welcoming the agreement as a "win-win" for global clients, the firm says it will allow end-users to "bring 3D measurement close to the production line with the perfect combination of Metrolog X4 and Renishaw's Equator system".
Laurent Monge, President of Metrologic Group added: "We are committed to working with our customers to improve their productivity. As such, I am convinced that combining Renishaw 5-axis technologies together with the Metrologic Group software solution represents a key step in that journey".
The move also suggests Renishaw's REVO® 5-axis CMM scanning systems, PH20 5-axis touch-trigger systems and the Equator™ shopfloor gauging system, powered by Metrologic's X4 software platform will reach new users.
"This will provide full integration of world-class metrology solutions with the X4 software platform," he added.
Victor Escobar, President of Renishaw SAS, said: "The integration of Renishaw's industry-leading measurement technologies with Metrolog X4 will allow both existing and new users of Metrolog software to reap the benefits of accurate, high-speed, multi-sensor CMM measurement and fast flexible shopfloor gauging."
This combination of technologies from Metrologic and Renishaw will enable significantly faster, value-added measurement for both process control at the point of manufacture and conventional quality assurance activities, he explained.
The newly signed agreement will also enable cross-company collaborations and commercialisation and ensure customers have access to a fully bundled and proven solution, said Renishaw.
