Renishaw promotes productivity at Additive International

22 June 2018

To share its knowledge and expertise in metal additive manufacturing as a serialised production technique, global engineering company Renishaw is attending the Additive International summit. The event is taking place at the Belfry Hotel, Nottingham, UK from the 10th to the 12th July 2018. It brings together delegates from industry and academia to share knowledge and ideas in the additive manufacturing industry.

Renishaw is a regular attendee at the Additive International summit and this year is a Bronze Sponsor of the event. During the two-day conference, Renishaw's applications engineers will be available on the stand during breakout sessions to answer delegates' specific questions.

At the summit, Renishaw will highlight its developments in multi-laser additive manufacturing technology by exhibiting a mobile demo version of its latest additive manufacturing system, the RenAM 500Q. The system features four 500 W lasers to greatly improve productivity in the most commonly used platform size. The competitively positioned machine reduces cost per part, without compromising on quality.

“Multi-laser platforms offer an opportunity for manufacturers to increase productivity,” explained Marc Saunders, Director of Global Solutions Centres at Renishaw. “During the event, we hope to educate professionals and share the capabilities of multi-laser systems to help the industry improve its processes.

“The UK's Additive Manufacturing Strategy has identified the business opportunity of £3.5bn per year and 60,000 associated jobs,” continued Saunders. “For this to happen, industry must grow, develop and learn how to make the most out of the technology. Such information can be difficult to come by, but the Additive International summit provides a platform for knowledge transfer, which is unique in the UK.”

To support the development of the industry Renishaw operates a global network of Solutions Centres. At the Centres, manufacturers can gain knowledge and confidence in additive manufacturing, accessing Renishaw's equipment and expertise.
