Renishaw, a provider of measurement, motion control, spectroscopy and precision machining products, has purchased R&R Sales LLC, a provider of fixtures for the global measurement and inspection market.
The acquisition supports Renishaw’s increasing focus on metrology system sales, such as those involving the company’s new Equator gauge, which requires fixturing devices.
