NC4+ Blue systems

Compared to red laser sources found in conventional non-contact tool setters, blue laser technology has a shorter wavelength for improved diffraction effects and optimized laser beam geometry, enabling measurement of very small tools while minimizing tool-to-tool measurement errors.

NC4+ Blue systems also use Renishaw’s non-contact tool setting software packages, which include a new dual measurement mode with auto optimization technology, ensuring fast and reliable tool measurement.

NC4+ Blue support is embedded into Renishaw’s graphical user interfaces, including on-machine and mobile apps.
