  • A closer look at the RenAM 500Q

    RenAM 500Q quad 500 W laser additive manufacturing system Traditional barriers to additive manufacturing (AM) were limited production speed and variation in build quality between machines. However, new multi-laser systems are changing the status quo. Here Rebecca Underwood, Product Marketing Specialist at global engineering technologies company Renishaw, gives you a closer look into Renishaw’s RenAM 500Q system, to provide insight into the latest technologies driving metal AM.

  • Renishaw speeds ahead at TCT Show 2019

    Manifold AM part for the Brunel University race team From September 24th to 26th 2019, global engineering technologies company Renishaw will return to TCT Show at the NEC in Birmingham, UK. On stand D100, Renishaw will showcase new and exciting applications of high productivity, high quality metal additive manufacturing (AM). Visitors can see Domin Fluid Power’s direct drive valves, as well as see Brunel University’s Formula Student race car BR-XX and its titanium manifold.

  • Optimising engine design with metal additive manufacturing

    Cobra Aero designed a lattice structure to increase airflow Global engineering technologies company, Renishaw, worked with engine manufacturing company Cobra Aero, based in Michigan, USA, to optimise its design processes for aircraft and motorcycle engines. After working with Renishaw to develop new manufacturing processes, Cobra Aero invested in the AM 400 system to increase its additive manufacturing (AM) capabilities.

  • Renishaw supports Brunel Racing in Formula Student competition
