RenAM 500S

Advanced single laser AM system with the ability to upgrade to a four laser AM system

RenAM 500S is part of Renishaw's RenAM 500 series additive manufacturing machines. It is specifically designed for building metal components in a production environment. RenAM 500S can easily be upgraded to become a four-laser system to further benefit from higher build rates, whilst maintaining finished part quality, increased productivity and lowering cost per part.

RenAM 500S features automated powder and waste handling systems that enable consistent process quality, reduce operator intervention time and ensure high standards of system safety.

    RenAM 500Q/S are Renishaw’s multi-laser AM systems. The RenAM 500 series can be configured with one (S) or four (Q) high power 500 W lasers, each able to access the whole powder bed surface simultaneously. With its four lasers, RenAM 500Q achieves build rates up to four times faster than single laser systems. Its compact galvanometer assembly has been designed and additively manufactured in-house, using aluminium for high thermal conductivity, and includes conformal cooling fluid channels resulting in excellent thermal stability of the optical system.
