I'm doing a school project on patent protection. I have chasen the
Renishaw CMM probe as a subject.

I have examined the patent pertaining to the mechanism within the probe
that determines when contact is made between the stylus and a part. I
noticed that the patent was originally awarded to David R. McMurty and
lists Rolls-Royse as the Asignee. Does anybody out there know the
relationship between Rolls Royce and Renishaw?

Does anybody if there is any direct competition to Renishaw in this area?
I'm having trouble finding any.
