Renishaw launches new technology
By Simon Hacker | 24th October 2023
Tech giant Renishaw is set to stage a big reveal for innovations that promise to slash contstruction time in the fast-emerging additive manufacturing (AM) industry.
The debut event will take place in two weeks' time at Formnext 2023, which is being held in Frankfurt.
Attendees (from November 7th to 10th, at the company's new technology at stand C11 in Hall 11.0) will get the first look at an upgrade to the bestselling RenAM 500 series, which promises faster work with no loss of part quality.
Louise Callanan, Director of AM, said that by lowering cost per part, these innovations would help drive wider industry adoption of AM.
She said: "This launch demonstrates Renishaw's commitment to putting the best possible AM tools in the hands of the user. To bring AM to the mainstream, Renishaw is addressing what has historically been a huge barrier to AM adoption: productivity. The RenAM 500 metal AM series, already the most productive system on the market, can now build up to twice as fast as before. This dramatic change of pace drives down cost per part and broadens the range of viable applications."
As well as supercharging productivity, Renishaw is seeking to empower users with the best possible quality management toolkit, she explained.
"By equipping users with data, giving them more control and providing in-process visibility, Renishaw is helping operators gain the confidence needed to move forward. Our new products will help users ensure a solid process foundation and optimal machine performance to consistently produce high quality parts."
Alongside its new products, the stand will feature Renishaw's flagship four-laser system, the RenAM 500Q as well the RenAM 500 Flex, which is optimised for R&D work. These will feature alongside an array of real production parts from Renishaw's global customer base. Fans of mountain biking will also be excited to see Atherton Bikes' AM.200M, the 'fastest bike in the world'; produced using a RenAM 500Q system and ridden to gold medal success by UCI Mountain Bike World Champion Charlie Hatton.
